Jane Russell Friday # 48

Regular readers of this blog know that I used to subject them to “Jane Russell Friday,” wherein every Friday, I would post a different photo of voluptuous 1940’s actress Jane Russell. I gave up on that practice a long while back. However, recently a Facebook friend of mine sent me an ad for a Jane Russell-themed pillow that is actually available for sale online, and I couldn’t resist posting the photo for it here.


Man, I could get into a pillow fight with this thing all by myself…

Jane Russell Special # 47

I used to post photos of my screen fave Jane Russell every Friday, but I quit after I couldn’t find any more unique photos of her. But today, I came across a pic I’d never seen before, of Jane and Victor Mature, so I just had to post it. Looks as though Victor is about to get quite a handful of Jane…




Jane Russell Friday # 46

Happy Jane Russell Friday! I am discontinuing my practice of ushering in Fridays with photos of Janie — not because I’m any less enamored of her, but because I can no longer find any really unique images of her. And so, I leave you with the ultimate stock shot from that mother lode of feminine pulchritude, Jane Russell’s The French Line — autographed by Jane, no less.


Jane Russell Friday # 18

Happy Valentine’s Day (Saturday), and happy Jane Russell Friday! The only possible way to celebrate this glorious weekend is with one of Jane’s subtext-loaded Playtex bra commercials.

Here, Jane answers a letter from a fan who has just received a marriage proposal and has nothing better to do than write Jane and ask her for an appropriate brand of brassiere to wear under her bridal gown. Jane helpfully displays her Playtex boulder-holder over her arm and declares it a joy “for we full-figured gals who love pretty things.” From there… Well, you’ll have to take it for yourself from there. I’m busy holding up my laptop with one hand.
