Movie: The Outlaw
Directed by American pioneer Howard Hughes, The Outlaw starred the very vivacious Jane Russell. The film was notable as her breakthrough role, turning the young actress into a sex symbol, a Hollywood icon and the fantasy of every young boy in the 1950s. But in the eyes of the Irish, Jane and her voluptuous curves were found to be too strong of a sexual inference to allow the motion picture to screen in Ireland.
Hughes, the resourceful businessman, schemed to create a public outcry in the U.S. for his film to be banned. The angst turned into publicity, which turned into a box office bankroll for the Jane Russell-starring picture.
