Jane Russell passed away last night at the age of 89. She was a hollywood legend, way ahead of her time, who held her own and more against Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Perfer Blondes. She also had one of the most controversial censorship battles when she starred in Howard Hughes' The Outlaw - her debut film, no less. What a way to start your career! She was sultry, strong, sexy and controversial - and talented to boot. Read all about her life and career in the New York Time's tribute to her today.
As a tribute to her great talent, here she is in her iconic number "Ain't There Anyone Here For Love" from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Another Hollywood great gone, but definitely not forgotten. Rest in peace.
