Illustrated with six stunning images of Jane Russell, the editors of PIC MAGAZINE rambled-on about the delayed production date of The Outlaw:
"With a perfectly straight face, publicist Russell Birdwell continues to announce periodically that Jane Russell's first motion picture, THE OUTLAW, is about to be released. Produced and directed by Howard Hughes, discoverer of Jean Harlow, it's announced that the film will also feature another youthful Hughes discovery, Jack Buetel. Anybody seen anything of Jack Buetel?"
Speaking of THE OUTLAW (and you Dickens fans will love this), it was said that one day in NYC, playwrights Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman were walking past a wall that was plastered with advertisements for the film. Needless to say, the posters in question featured that famous image of Russell on the haystack - which inspired Kaufman to remark:
"You know, they shouldn't call that movie 'The Outlaw' at all."
"Oh," said his companion, "What should it be called?"
"'The Sale of Two Titties'"
