PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Screen legend and pinup Jane Russell visited veterans in Prescott, answering questions about her experiences in Hollywood and her famed relationships.
Russell spoke to the veterans about how she used to do nationwide USO tours with Bob Hope and told them seeing all of them was like reuniting with her old boyfriends.
Russell starred in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" opposite Marilyn Monroe and in two Robert Mitchum movies, among other screen credits.
Now 86, Russell lives in Santa Maria, California, and visited the veterans after her son-in-law arranged it. Her son-in-law worked at the Prescott VA Hospital for more than 30 years.
