Nick and I got a chance to meet her several years ago, and she was fantastic. Still quite a tour de force well into her golden years. These pictures are truly terrific – if you ever had any doubts that Miss Jane was and is one of the most photogenic women on the planet, these shots should settle that debate. What I love is that in almost every photo of her, you get the sense that she’s not only beautiful, but also intelligent, street smart, wisecracking, and underneath that tough exterior, has a heart which can still be broken – all of the things that make Jane Russell, Jane Russell. Happy Birthday, Miss Russell! Hope you celebrated in style.
