Outlaw Jane Russell. 1921-2011.

A few words of tribute to Jane Russell, the dark-haired siren of Hollywood whose acting in  the 1943 film “The Outlaw”  challenged the strict morality of Hollywood and of her time.

She was much more than the favorite pinup girl of US soldiers during World War II, much more than one of the Iconic movie goddesses of all time, she was a real life class act, like very few. (picture from archives)

    Apart from the trashiness of today’s “superstars” they all lack what Jane Russell had in spades: star quality. Last Sunday, at the Oscars, most of those ladies looked like some Mary Smiths who had just washed their hair but didn’t have time to blow dry. All of them are interchangeable. Jane Russell was unique. RIP

    Thanks for remembering Jane Russell Cyril. Behind that famous sweater was a woman who loved motorcycles too. She rode with her brothers while growing up and finally got her own Indian motorcycle in the late 40’s. Check out my book, “The American Motorcycle Girls, 1900-1950” She’s on page 227, riding the bike and… uh, wearing a sweater too!
