    With possibly the most famous rack to ever grace a screen:

    I bet most kids don't know who Marlyn Monroe was and Jane Russell was a generation before that. I didn't even know she was still alive.

    Sad news. She had a long life and did great work. She was also a stunning beauty.

    I loved her in the movie Tall Men with Clark Gabel. That western never gets old for me.
    RIP Jane.

    They were of the same generation. As someone else said, check out "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", Monroe & Russell, same generation! :eusa_whistle:

    Yep!
    Jane Russell got her movie contract in 1940 and Marilyn Munroe got her's in 1946.

    A great lady.

    Howard Hughs sure loved her boobs. He had to get that famous shot just right. Don't think he was ever satisfied though. LOL

    Another fine actress from Hollywoods Golden age gone.
