Jane Russell, the voluptuous, heavily promoted star of Howard Hughes' controversial Western "The Outlaw," who later proved herself to be an adept comedienne and singer in such films as "Paleface" and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," died Monday, Feb. 28 in Santa Maria, Calif. She was 89.

Some men are searchin for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothin sweeter 
Than riden' the rails."

This caught me off guard more than any other celebrity passing of recent years.  She was announced to appear at the Chicago Hollywood show at the end of March and I just received a poster in the mail 2 days ago that I was going to have autographed.  I was greatly looking forward to meeting Ms. Russell and assumed that she was in good health with the show already announced. R.I.P.

When you get that age, you can have good health then all of a sudden get sick and go real fast.  Actually, I mistakenly thought she already passed a few years back.  May she R.I.P.  I particularly liked her films with Robert Mitchum as they had good film chemistry together. Crawdaddy

Sad news. Not a huge fan but I liked her in the two Bob Hope Paleface films. R.I.P.

I watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes last night. Jane Russell was excellent. When she was given decent material and a good director, Jane was really something.
