Odd Location Shoot Photo

Year of Jane Russell: Day 27

Here’s another photo taken on location in Moekopi, Arizona where The Outlaw initially began production in December 1940. Pros of the image? The fresh-faced and smiling 19-year-old Jane at the beginning of her career, in a shirt from Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors. Cons? Screaming infant. Production took place on a Hopi reservation, and it’s odd that the photographer not only thought that using the baby as a prop was a good idea, but stuck with it even though this was the result. Even odder, that the photo was printed and distributed! Jane actually loved children, so we’ll hope neither subject of the photo was subjected to this for too long!
