I like a man who can run faster than I can – Jane Russell
I love Jane Russell‘s attitude. Not that I imagine many men would have been running away from her as she was one of the biggest sex symbols of the 40s and 50s (and not just because of her magnificent assets). My first introduction to Jane Russell was watching Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which is a shame really. She couldn’t compete pictured next to Marilyn (in my opinion), but I adored her fiery attitude and those legs, well, they went on forever!
Here are some photos of Marilyn and Russell being immortalized in cement outside Graumans Chinese Theatre after the success of that movie.
Which is your favourite, Monroe or Russell?
