Bye bye baby.


Jane Russell dies aged 89 in California *sobs*

If we were the sort of people who wanted to be a girl, the sort of girl we’d want to be is Jane Russell. Great hair, big chocolate eyes (and none of your Kraft shit either!), lovely Lindas, tingly singin’ voice, wonderful vagina (we’re guessing), lots of other nice things.

Anyway, dead.

Of respiratory-related illness. Eighty-nine. Which is quite a good innings, to use the cricket analogy. Cricket’s good for analogies.

‘She always said I’m going to die in the saddle, I’m not going to sit at home and become and old woman,’ said Jane’s daughter-in-law. ‘And that’s exactly what she did. She died in the saddle.’

See, cricket!

And now for one of our favourite Jane Russell songs. Okay, two. Okay, three.

*sobs*

  1. Bye bye baby….
    *also sobs*
    Check out the Spaniel in the Bye Bye Baby sequence. I’ve always been obsessed with the Spaniel in the Bye Bye Baby sequence.
    And Jane Russell.
    And the hairy-chested gentleman in Ain’t There Anyone Here For Love, as seen up top.
    *sobs some more*

  3. My love of her ads for Playtex in the 70s (‘Great news for us full-figured gals/ ‘My 24-hour girdle!…Oh, I’ve got it on..’) was an early indication of my appreciation of camp.

  4. What’s a Jane Russell tribute without French and Saunders doing their bit?
