The rarely screened "Young Widow" will be shown on Turner Classic Movies in the U.S. on June 21 (the channel released its June schedule Monday). It's part of what had been planned as a Jane Russell 90th birthday celebration -- TCM has been running Russell films on that date for several years now -- but will now serve as a memorial. (The channel will likely run a few of her films later this month as a quickly-arranged tribute.)
