business news in context, analysis with attitude

• Jane Russell, who went from being discovered by Howard Hughes are starring in The Outlaw, which the billionaire produced and directed, to starring with Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, died yesterday. She was 89.

The story behind The Outlaw illustrates how the culture has changed. While the film was shot in 1941, it took almost a decade to get it into theaters because censors were concerned about the extent to which her cleavage was displayed.
