    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.

    NY Times Obituary

    Jane Russell, the voluptuous actress at the center of one of the most highly publicized censorship episodes in movie history, the long-delayed release of the 1940s western “The Outlaw,” died on Monday at her home in Santa Maria, Calif. She was 89.
    She also turned to conservative politics in her later years.

    “These days I’m a teetotal, mean-spirited, right-wing, narrow-minded, conservative Christian bigot, but not a racist,” she told an Australian newspaper, The Daily Mail, in 2003. Bigotry, she added, “just means you don’t have an open mind.”
    Ms. Russell was very public about her religious convictions. She organized Bible study groups in Hollywood and wrote about having experienced speaking in tongues.

    “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.

    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.

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

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

    I had no idea about this either.

    THE DECISION by Jane Russell to adopt an Irish baby boy caused great controversy in the early 1950s. The Hollywood star and her husband, Bob Waterfield, adopted Tommy Kavanagh in 1952, some time after meeting his mother, Florrie Kavanagh, at the Savoy Hotel in London.
