Jane Russell Fembot

As shown in this vintage comic, it turns out Jane Russell was the original fembot, significantly predating other depictions of fembots.

Let's face it, who wouldn't want a Jane Russell robot.  Here's some of the advertising taglines used on her movie posters:
"How'd you like to tussle with Russell?" - The Outlaw (1943)
"Jane Russell and Frank Sinatra...What a pair!" - Double Dynamite (1951)
"They were two of a kind!" - His Kind of Woman (1951) 
"Warm Lips...Hot Lead!" - Montana Belle (1952)
"The Two M-M-Marvels Of Our Age In The Wonder Musical Of The World!" - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
"Jane Russell in 3-D. It'll Knock both your eyes out!" - The French Line (1954)
"Skin Diver Action...Aqua-lung Thrills!" - Underwater! (1955)
"They Don't come ANY BIGGER" - The Tall Men (1955)
"SEE 'EM SIZZLE IN THE BIG, BUXOM, BEAUTIFUL MUSICAL!" - Gentlemen Marry Brunettes (1955)
"Jane Russell shakes her tambourines and drives Cornel Wilde!" - Hot Blood (1956)
"The hottest bundle ever hijacked!" - The Fuzzy Pink Nightgown (1957)

That's what's missing in todays movie promotions, honesty in advertising.
One of her movies should have been called "Gentlemen Prefer Bots".

Here's a link to an interview with a Journalist and a robot head that's had a real persons thoughts and memories uploaded, creating a very vague and confused artificial intelligence. It longs for a real life so it can go outside and do gardening or conspire to takeover the planet.
Not quite the fembot that the well known Japanese Actroid is, but what do you expect from a non-profit organisation.
