Jane Russell in later life, still a beautiful woman

Another iconic Hollywood Legend has passed away.

Jane Russell died on Monday (28th February 2011), she was 89.  Much remembered and loved as the Brunette in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, along with Marilyn Monroe – who naturally played the ‘Blonde’.  In fact during the making of this movie, the two stars became friends.

Never being fully appreciated at the time for her acting skills, she was a talented comedienne who was better known as the busty sex siren from her days in the The Outlaw film, in which she made her debut.
