Jane Russell

In the silly, glitzy musical "The French Line," silver screen icon Jane Russell plays a millionairess with an oil empire who is looking for love. Since men are intimidated by her immense wealth, she swaps places with a French model to look for love. Her serious curves were highlighted in a showgirl-worthy bedazzled costume, so skimpy that the Catholic National Legion of Decency condemned the film and called for a boycott. Adding to the controversy was the film's medium: 3D, which allowed Russell's generous bosom to pop out of the screen at viewers. Producer Howard Hughes proudly thought up the film's tagline: "J. R. in 3D. It'll knock both your eyes out!"
