Boy, was I sad to come home from work and literally have the first thing I saw when I turned on my computer was the news that Jane Russell had died. I’ve only really seen a few of her movies, but I’ve always had a great fondness for her. She always knew who she was and and lived life on her own terms and she made no apologies for it. Plus she was the star of one of my favorite movies, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I refuse to even call that movie a guilty pleasure because it’s just so much fun to watch. She and Marilyn are one of my favorite on-screen duos, I always wished they had made more movies together. Since I’m always going to best remember Jane for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, I’m just going to share some of her best moments from that movie.
We’ll miss you, Jane!
