Judy Holliday and Jane Russell 100 -- June 21, 2021

I was surprised to learn that Judy Holliday and Jane Russell were born on the same day 100 years ago, 21-June-1921. 

Jane Russell was an actress who overcame a lot of jokes about her appearance to have a good career as an actress and a singer.
Some years ago a San Francisco theater revived her only 3-D movie, The French Line. I remember seeing all the peoples' heads ducking when she turned around. Sorry Ms Russell, I had to repeat that story.

Judy Holliday was wonderful in Born Yesterday and Bells are Ringing. She often played stupid, but she was exceptionally intelligent. She died far too young.
