Jane Russell

"Culture," Bob Hope once said, "is the ability to describe Jane Russell without moving your hands." Most of the descriptions of the actress, who died on Monday, have focused on her looks -- full-figured brunette with legs a mile long, a Hollywood sex symbol who could give Marilyn Monroe a run for her money. But she was famous as well for playing smart-talking, wise-cracking women with talent and indomitable will.

In this interview the film star talks about her religious life, for which she also became well-known, and the World Adoption International Fund, one of her major ventures.
