    She had a great life and left us a wonderful legacy in movies. Thanks for the memories and R.I.P.

    AW!! Now, both Dorothy Shaw and Lorelei Lee are gone! :(

    Gentlemen Prefer Blondes...one of the best buddy movies ever made. RIP Ms Russell.

    Wow. What a shock. I didn't even know she was that sick.

    :( RIP, raven haired beauty.

    ETA: Jane has a special place in my heart for growing older gracefully. I've not seen recent photos of the lady, but she looked to be a natural, minorly touched up if at all, beauty into her 70s.

    Oh wow. Thanks for posting. I too loved GPB, I always thought the title of that movie was weird since the gentlemen seemed quite gaga over the brunette! ;)

    Total agreement - she was also intelligent, funny and could sing in a natural, sultry voice. She will be missed. :(

    I remember watching the joint Private Screenings special that she and Robert Mitchum did with Robert Osborne several years ago. Those two (Russell and Mitchum) still had great chemistry even in their advanced years.

    “My Gal Friday” with Cary Grant was very good. She was a Waterbury, CT girl. Her brother, William, was one of my father’s customers. R.I.P.

    Yes, I just read about her political views earlier today. She was extremely pro-life--against abortion even in the case of rape and incest!!

    This doesn't take away my earlier RIP comment, but yes: :eek:

    She was always one of my favorites amongst the old Hollywood actresses.

    As I've said before, I love how so many liberals are convinced that 100 percent of celebrities agree with them on everything (and that if they don't, something has gone badly wrong with the universe).

    It's really only 99 percent. ;)

    R.I.P. Jane.

    Jane Russell or Rosalind Russell? Sounds like you're talking about the latter...

    I just thought it was :eek: that anyone would be proud to call themselves a bigot. You're not shocked by that?

    I had no idea about this either.

    She was a fine singer/actress/performer, and lovely lady.
    I may not have agreed with her; but, she stood up for what she believed.
    RIP.
