Jane Russell

Brunette beauty who sent shock waves through Hollywood when she burst onto the screen in the Howard Hawks western “The Outlaw” (1943).  The film was banned on its initial release due to Jane’s revealing attire but when the film resurfaced years later it was a box office smash. Other notable films for Jane include, “The Paleface” (1948), “Montana Belle” (1952), “Gentleman Prefer Blondes” (1953) & “The Tall Men” (1955).

Jane Russell’s Top 10 Films on DVD & VHS:

The Outlaw [DVD](1943) DVD
Howard Hughes' controversial Western drama, a loose retelling of the story of gunslinger Billy the Kid and lawman Pat Garrett, is best remembered now as the screen debut of Jane Russell (whose natural attributes were emphasized by producer-director Hughes). Jack Buetel, Walter Huston, Thomas Mitchell also star. 117 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English mono.

The Paleface [DVD](1948) DVD

Features the Oscar-winning song "Buttons and Bows." 91 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby mono; Subtitles: French, Spanish; vintage Hope clips; biographies; production notes; DVD-ROM content; photo gallery; trailer.

Son Of Paleface [DVD](1952) DVD
A hilarious vehicle for Bob Hope, who plays "Junior" Potter, the Harvard graduate who ventures out West to claim the inheritance of his frontier "hero" pa.

Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby mono; biographies; filmography; scene access.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes [DVD](1953) DVD
Showgirls Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell set sail for Paris on an ocean liner with the goal of landing some eligible millionaires in the lively musical/comedy based on Anita Loos' play.

Road To Bali [DVD](1953) DVD

Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; scene access.

Double Dynamite(1951) VHS
It's money, money everywhere and not a dime to spend for Frank Sinatra and Jane Russell, two lovebirds in a bank teller's cage who are suspected of embezzlement when Frank's big racing bet pays off.

Macao(1952) VHS
