'Jane Russell was the girl-next-door. Destined to marry her own high school sweetheart, football legend Robert Waterfield, and become the mother of three adopted children, she founded WAIF, a national adoption organisation. Her primary goals were never her movie career and stardom, but instead her close relationship with her family and friends, and her own personal faith in the Lord. Jane's rise to stardom under the direction of Howard Hughes, her legendary long-term contract, and her succession of rises and falls in the film industry were all the public was to know of this warm, down-to-earth humanitarian whose love for children set her apart and about which she writes in her candid autobiography.'
