Jane Russell RIP

So, the world must say goodbye to Jane Russell.

I choose to remember her more for this clip than for her politics:

Ain't There Anyone Here For Love by avinot


  1. fr dougal says

    She had politics?

  2. I believe she described herself as “a teetotal, mean-spirited, right-wing, narrow-minded, conservative Christian bigot.”

    Any more questions, John?

    (Apart from where one might find flesh coloured swimming trunks?)

  3. fr dougal says

    Well, at least she was honest – and by now she knows she was wrong!

  4. Rosemary Hannah says

    Not just the flesh colour but the little dark band on them which is – quite distracting.

  5. I wondered whether the little dark band was sewn on in order to show, for the avoidance of doubt, that they were in fact wearing something.

  6. Rosemary Hannah says

    I think we have to admit the little band does rather more than draw attention to their being to some degree dressed.

  7. I think its a curious visual paradox. It makes them appear dressed on the one hand and quite undressed on the other.

  8. Oh I see!This wasn’t really about Jane Rusell at all…

  9. Pay attention, Mother. Pay attention.
