This post is for my brother- Betty Grable in a very tiny nutshell.
Her and Marilyn were both pinups but they were more than just the ‘cheesecake’ that the subjects of these images were known as. A brilliant public figure, made fabulous films and had a contract with Twentieth Century Fox (who insured her legs for one million dollars each) until they were bastards to her.
Then she made How To Marry A Millionaire. Go see it, boy!
