Hearing of the passing of Jane Russell earlier this week got me thinking. This old Jane Russell movie has nothing to do with my story, and I didn’t even realize it existed until after my Montana Belle published. But I love this poster. They don’t make movie stars like they used to, do they? My husband asked me the other day which current actors or actresses I’d meet if I had the chance. I could think of several guys (George Clooney, Colin Firth, etc.), but not a single actress. The younger actresses just sort of seem like cookie cutter starlets to me.
But not Jane Russell. Rest in peace, Jane, the original Montana Belle and “full figured gal!”
