Jane Russell prints at Grauman's Chinese Theater

It seems Jane Russell died the sex goddess introduced to the world by Howard Hughes, or the nice kid from Van Nuys High School out in the Valley. But she was eighty-nine and had become a legend, not a person. There were tributes here in Hollywood, but she was from another age, long ago. In 1953, with the premiere of Gentlemen Prefer Blonds, she left her foot and hand prints in the cement in the courtyard of Grauman's Chinese Theater. But this day people just looked puzzled.
