Featured Pinup of the Month: July

Good afternoon lovelies!

Its been a little while since I’ve had this segment on here, with study and what not keeping me very busy, but now that I’m back updating more regularly, this will return to being a regular edition on my blog! And with this, I’d like to introduce you to July’s beautiful and talented pinup of the month, Jane Russell!

Jane Russell is a hollywood startlet who began her career as a receptionist, saving enough money to study at drama school. She was eventually signed by Howard Hughes for his film “The Outlaw” (1943), which launched her career, and made her a star. The film finished production in 1941, but due to the scantly clad nature of the film, the Hollywood Production Code Administration ordered cuts to be made to this film before its release, which the Holly Production then withdrew so the film was no able to be released, Hughes got this into the theatres for one week during 1943, where it was taken down for violating the production code. It wasn’t until April 1946 that it was finally widely released, becoming a box office hit.

She starred in such notable films as The Vegas Story (1952), The Revolt of Mamie Stover (1956), and alongside Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), with the success of this film Marilyn and Jane were given the chance to put their hand and footprints, in the cement at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

From the late 1950’s and mid 1960’s she took a break from the silver screen and dabbled in television, returning to film in 1964 with Fate is the Hunter, and continued to work in film and television until 1986. Jane Russell is still to this day regarded as one of the most iconic actresses of the golden age of glamour, as well as one of the most beautiful pinups of her time.
