Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

RIP Jane Russell

RIP Mrs. Russell

Jane Russell passed away on February 28 after a brief illness. She was 89.  Howard Hughes made her a star when he cast her in the western “The Outlaw” in 1943. She went on to make a string of musical comedies the most famous of which was “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (1955). Today’s videos come from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and “Son Of Paleface” respectively. Unfortunately “Paleface” is not streaming online so tonight I will be watching “Blondes” in her honor.
