Jane Russell, R. I. P.

Jane Russell, Voluptuous Star of Westerns, Dies at 89 - NYTimes.com: "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.

The cause was a respiratory-related illness, her daughter-in-law, Etta Waterfield, said."

Great screen presence. The camera loved her. She managed to move through the minefields of Howard Hughes and Hollywood pretty well.
Quite a woman!

I agree, Bud. One of the last of the real "movie stars."
