Actress Jane Russell

Jane Russell biography

Jane Russell was born June 21, 1921, in Bemidji, Minnesota, USA.

She was an American actress. She was working as a model and attending drama school when Howard Hughes offered her a role in The Outlaw (1943).

The film was a huge success, not least because of Jane Russell's busty appearance and overt sexual performance, and she became a popular pinup figure during the rest of World War II.

This was followed by a series of films produced by Howard Hughes, who kept Jane Russell firmly in the role of one of the fantastic sex bombs of the period. Still, in, for example, Howard Hawks' Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), she was finally allowed to demonstrate her not-inconsiderable comedic talent with Marilyn Monroe.

In the late 1950s, Jane Russell began to appear in television series instead of films, which she continued with widely varying intervals until her last role in 1986.

Died on February 28, 2011, in Santa Maria, California, USA.
