Left: A portrait of Jane Russell from "The Las Vegas Story."
By 1970 she left Hollywood films, but was featured on the TV series "Hunter" and "The Yellow Rose," and appeared on Broadway in Stephen Sondheim's "Company." She also formed a gospel singing group with Connie Haines and Beryl Davis, and was also active in her church and charities.
In the 1970s and '80s Russell was most frequently seen in TV commercials for Playtex Bras.
Russell died from respiratory failure in 2011 at her home in Santa Maria, Calif., at the age of 89.
