The eternally beautiful Jane Russell turns 88 today! I had the pleasure of seeing the living legend in person a few years back in Los Angeles at the Aero Theatre's Jane Russell Double Feature of Gentleman Prefer Blondes and Son of Paleface. Jane showed up unexpectedly for a Q & A and was very candid and pleasant. At the time she was living in New Mexico and involved with adoption charities. Still statuesque and elegant, she was visibly flattered at the overwhelmingly amorous response the audience gave her. If you can, pick up Jane Russell: My Path and My Detours : An Autobiography, fantastic read!
