    Jane Russell Dead at 89: A Tribute [VIDEOS]

    Jane Russell Dead at 89


    A screen legend is no more.

    Jane Russell, the actress and sex symbol who rose to fame in the 1940s, passed away this week at the age of 89, KCOY News reported. Her many feature films included "The Outlaw," "Foxfire," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "Gentlemen Marry Brunettes."

    With her distinctive hour-glass figure, Russell was often compared to Marilyn Monroe, with whom she starred in "Gentleman Prefer Blondes." Unlike Monroe, however, she became known as much for her singing as she did for her acting.


    :rip  She was a fine actress. also she was born about an hour away from where i live.

    Lost another one from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Rest in Peace Jane. :(  Didn't Jerry Siegel base Lois Lane on her?

    edit: nvm, that was his wife Joanne. She also died recently.
