By the way, the bra that Howard Hughes supposedly created for Jane was fake, in reality she would place Kleenex’s over her boobs and everybody thought it was a classic.















“The Original poster for the 1943’s “The Outlaw” which featured Jane Russell sold for $82,000. Russell posed provocatively on a bed of straw to promote Howard Hughes flick, which was pulled from screens after only a week by censors.”

From Wikipedia: In 1940 Russell was signed to a seven-year contract by film mogul, Howard Hughes,[8] and made her motion-picture debut in The Outlaw (1943), a story about Billy the Kid that went to great lengths to showcase her voluptuous figure. Although the movie was completed in 1941, it was not released until 1943 in a limited release. It finally was released to a wide distribution in 1946. There were problems with the censorship of the production code over the way her ample cleavage was displayed. When the movie was finally passed, it had a general release in 1946. During that time she was kept busy doing publicity and became known nationally.[9] Contrary to countless incorrect reports in the media since the release of The Outlaw, Russell did not wear the specially designed underwire bra that Howard Hughes had designed and made for her to wear during filming. According to Jane’s 1985 autobiography, she said the bra was so uncomfortable that she secretly discarded it and wore her own bra with the cups padded with tissue and the straps pulled up to elevate her breasts.[10][11]
