JANE RUSSELL 1921 to 2011: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Above, the recently departed Jane Russell with the long departed Robert Mitchum in “His Kind of Woman.” Jane usually played a no-nonsense street-wise dame with a heart of gold, and that’s what her leading men liked about her. When we first moved to Hollywood we encountered Jane at a party and told her she was our father’s favorite actress and it happened to be his birthday. No cell phones then, but she sweetly wrote “Happy birthday George, Love from Jane Russell” on a napkin with a red kiss print! Sweet!
