    Description

    Jane Russell in "The Outlaw" Portrait Still by George Hurrell (United Artists, 1946). Autographed Still (24" X 20"). Beautiful oversized, double weight, matte finish still autographed by photographer, George Hurrell. A controversial film, The Outlaw was completed in 1943 but not released until 1946 due to producer/director/financier Howard Hughes's battles with the Hays Office over star Jane Russell's revealing wardrobe. In the end, the film was released in an edited form. While some of the deleted footage has been restored for recent home video releases, much is considered lost forever. In this stunning portrait of Russell by legendary photographer George Hurrell, one can easily see what all the fuss was about. Russell was never lovelier than in this incredible portrait. This particular piece, printed from an original negative under the artist's direct supervision, comes from Hurrell's very limited Portfolio II, released circa 1980, and is hand signed and numbered (187/190) by him. It shows some light smudging in the borders, light creasing in the borders and corners, and a tiny crease at the top of the image. These are all extremely minor flaws, none of which take anything away from this exceptionally rare and desirable piece. Very Fine-.
