In the Hay

Year of Jane Russell: Day 33

The second time George Hurrell photographed Jane Russell, he really embraced the theme of The Outlaw. Inspired by Jane’s first scene where she wrestles in hay with Jack Buetel, Hurrell had Jane dress up as her character Rio. He also ordered bales of hay brought into his studio which he had Jane pose on. The resulting images would become the most well known of Jane’s career.
