What 100 Stars Want in 1956 - Birthday Girl Jane Russell!

Thought I'd mix up the order a bit and highlight birthday girl, Jane Russell, born June 21st, 1921 in my home state of Minnesota (Bemidji to be exact). The fabulous Jane is still with us today and as spicy as ever. I have to say I am a great admirer of her outspokenness, views, and her incredible work for adoption which I hope to do myself one day...

Here were Jane's wishes in 1956:
"The important thing in my life is my home - Bob and the children. Personally, I want to continue to put into our marriage the faith and solidity and trust we have known all these years"
Bob Waterfield and Jane were married from April 24, 1943 to February 2, 1967.

"Professionally, I'm interested in the continued success of the Russfield Productions which is headed by my husband. Bob says I'm the main asset in this business, but Bob really runs the show"
Jane and her husband formed Russfield Productions in 1955. Russfield Productions made four film: Gentleman Marry Brunettes (1956), The King and Four Queens (1956), Run for the Sun (1956), and The Fuzzy Pink Nightgown (1957).

"I have a deep interest in seeing that every orphan in the world finds a happy and secure home in 1956. As a citizen, I'm working hard with the WAIF organization to help realize this dream."
Amanda's comment - This is admire Jane's work with adoption so much. What a classy lady. I was able to catch her in Macao today on TCM. She was fantastic in it! Check out the clip of her singing in it above.
