    One of the other Icons and Sex Symbols of early cinema passed away today. Jane Russell died at 89 in Santa Maria in central California today. She was definitely the brunettes version of Marilyn Monroe. Any thoughts ?

    She does not look comfortable posing in that straw AT ALL!
    She seems to be snarling, "You think you're gonna roll in this hay with me? Not a chance, buster."

    It's sad that another of those "old time" stars has passed.  Having said that, though, I can't honestly said I ever saw anything appealing about her.  I suspect it has to do with the fact that I'm not a man; but, to me, Jane Russell was just kind of "a big, awful, man-ish, woman".  lol   (It probably also doesn't help that she was of my mother's generaton.)  (Obviously some people saw her as a sex symbol - so who am I to question it..  hmm  )

    I think I always got her confused with Jayne Mansfield. Didn't she also have huge boobs?

      Yea but Jayne Mansfield was a blonde. And boy what a blonde !!! She had a gruesome ending to her life though.

    This was the photo I had in my mind. It is at my local Bucca di Beppo restorante. What a crackup!
    Not to be too ghoulish, but what happened to Jayne Mansfield (since you seem to be our resident expert on "big" stars, Tony!)

      I am no expert on the Hollywood crowd nor would I want to be. But she died in 1967 in an auto accident that cut off part of her head. YIKES !Oh by the way is that Sophia Loren ?

    It most certainly is Ms. Loren. Who still looks FABULOUS (at least the last time I saw her -- maybe she's withering now).

    I think I'm sorry I asked about Jayne Mansfield. Hopeully Ms. Russell's demise was less gory!
    Thanks for the info, tho, pal Tony! MM
