Jane Russell maybe at the public library. Russell (1921-2011) was signed by Howard Hughes for The Outlaw (1943), the film that was to make her famous. The film was not a classic by any means, but was geared to show off Jane’s ample physical assets. Although made in 1941, it was not released until 1943 and then only on a limited basis due to the way the film portrayed Jane’s figure. It was hard to pass the censorship board. When it gained general release in 1946, it was a smash at the box office.
