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 # 32

Happy Jane Russell Friday! From her own autobiography, here is the ultimate Jane Russell photo.

It shows Janie sporting a bikini that producer Howard Hughes wanted her to wear for his movie musical The French Line (1955). Let Jane tell the story:

“At the time, bikinis were only worn by a few naughty girls in the south of France; no one in America had ever worn them. [When I modeled it,] I stood before my horrified camera crew, feeling very naked.”

This reads like the account of a very embarrassed woman. Now look at the photo. Does that look like a very embarrassed woman to you?
