Happy Birthday: Jane Russell (1921–2011)

janerussell.jpgHappy Birthday actor Jane Russell (1921–2011)

Born: June 21, 1921 in Bemidji, Minnesota, USA

Died: February 28, 2011 (age 89) in Santa Maria, California, USA

Married to: John Calvin Peoples (31 January 1974 – 9 April 1999) (his death)
Roger Barrett (25 August 1968 – 18 November 1968) (his death)

QUOTES:

Yes, Howard Hughes invented a bra for me. Or, he tried to. And one of the seamless ones like they have now. He was way ahead of his time. But I never wore it in The Outlaw (1943). And he never knew. He wasn’t going to take my clothes off to check if I had it on. I just told him I did.
They held up The Outlaw (1943) for five years. And Howard Hughes had me doing publicity for it every day, five days a week for five years.
Publicity can be terrible. But only if you don’t have any.

Sometimes the photographers would pose me in a low-necked nightgown and tell me to bend down and pick up the pails. They were not shooting the pails.

The girl with the summer-hot lips . . . and the winter-cold heart.
The music these kids play nowadays, it’s nothing but screaming and pounding drums! You can’t hear the words, and that’s just as well, because the words stink!

[what she thinks of Hollywood liberals George Clooney, Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn) I think they’re not well.

[why modern Hollywood is so liberal] I think the ’60s have happened between when I was there and now. A lot of the actors and actresses, their parents were ’60s people and they just have a Democratic left wing–they flipped.

QUOTES:

I’m learning to embrace who I am and what I look like.

Nudity is just about your body. It’s easier to shut yourself off outside than reveal your inner thoughts.

If you think too much about playing an icon, it will immobilize you. You have to treat it like a fresh character. Sure, there are guidelines so that you don’t upset people, but you have to find your own way.

I’m fairly introverted, but when I do stuff like a Maxim shoot, there’s a side of me I call Gillian.

Smallville (2001) was my first love and it is always close to my heart.

Happy Birthday: Ron Ely

Married to: Valerie Lundeen (10 March 1984 – present)

Hosted a game show in the early 1980s called Face the Music (1979). A delightful trademark of his performance was his tendency to preface a statement to the contestants with the introductory identifier, “Contestants!”

The former “Tarzan” appeared in a rare guest spot on the jungle adventure Sheena (2000) in the 2001-2002 season.

Attended Amarillo High School. There is a letter sweater from him in the trophy cases (saved from 1970 fire in the older school).
