Uh-unh

Hey, I lived in Texas for a few years and I can say for sure that those gals aren't from Texas. They're from somewhere further north, say Kansas, or even Minnesota.

Jane's sidekick

Others will most likely have something to say about Jane Russell (and the two reasons why RKO chose to release this pic in 3-D) so I'll talk about her sidekick. Ms. McCarty seems about halfway through her career journey from Florabelle in Shirley Temple’s "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" (1938) to Mama Morton (matron of the women's jail) in the original Broadway cast of "Chicago" (1975).
