To younger people who only know her as Marilyn Monroe’s brunette costar in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, or baby boomers who remember her selling bras on TV “for us full-figured gals,” it might be hard to convey just how big an impact Jane Russell had on American popular culture in the 1940s and early 1950s.

There's an equally worthy project on tap this year; details follow later in this posting.It’s been several months since the chief of the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library in Moscow presented, with ceremonial flourish, digital copies of ten long-missing American silent films to Dr. James Billington at the Library of Congress.
