R.I.P. Jane Russel

They don't make them like they used to. Such glamour!

What can you say about Jane? She started her career in the movie The Outlaw and those bawdy half naked movie stills made her an international sex symbol. We all know her from Gentleman Prefer Blondes and those famous pictures of a sundress wearing Jane and Marilyn putting their handprints in cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theater. 
What you may not know is that she couldn't have children because of a back street abortion so she adopted three of them, one from a poor Irish woman. This inspired her to create World Adoption International Fund, paving the way for Brangelina and a whole host of foreign baby lovers. This is how she described heself in her later life- "These days I am a teetotal, mean spirited right wing, narrow minded conservative Christian bigot, but not a racist."
Okee dokee then!
