Happy Jane Russell Friday! Here’s Janie, straight up.
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?
Happy Jane Russell Friday! The other day, I came across this meme, which says it more succinctly than I ever could:
Happy Jane Russell Friday! I know I posted a Janie pose similar to this one in color a while back, but really…are you complaining?
Happy Jane Russell Friday! Here’s a photo of Janie from 1959. And don’t complain about Jane promoting cigarette smoking. If you’re paying attention to the cigarette, you’re looking at the wrong part of the photo.
Happy Jane Russell Friday! People think that Hollywood starlets earned a lot of money. But here, Jane proves that she was so poor, she couldn’t even afford a bra.
Happy Jane Russell Friday! I’ve been posting Janie’s cheesecake photos, but here’s a nice, contemplative shot from her senior years, showing that she still looked pretty babelicious even then.
