Jane’s RKO Dressing Room

Year of Jane Russell: Day 6

This week, we’ve been exploring a collection of original 8×10” negatives I recently acquired. Most of them are portraits, but then there’s this candid(ish) shot of Jane which I absolutely love. It’s during the filming of The Las Vegas Story and she’s shown in her RKO dressing room typing a letter, with a publicity photo of her with co-star Victor Mature strategically placed in the foreground. On the RKO lot, Jane was given the full star treatment and had the dressing room painted a pale pink.
