The estate of actress and philanthropist Jane Russell, who passed away on Feb. 28, 2011, will be represented worldwide exclusively by CMG, the company announced yesterday.
Russell is best known for roles in classic films such as The Outlaw, Paleface and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes alongside Marilyn Monroe, as well as her work as founder of the World Adoption International Fund.
“Remembered as a 1940s and 50s bombshell, Jane Russell stands as a legend of her time,” says Phil Korkis, director, sports licensing and legal counsel, CMG. “CMG looks forward to working with another prolific legend in protecting and promoting her intellectual property.”
“CMG is the perfect fit for what our mother and our family stand for and believe in,” say the children of Russell. “CMG upholds an excellent standard so very important to our mother and her image. They truly represent the best of the golden years of Hollywood.”
