Top 3 Pin Up Gals

Top 3 Pin Up Gals.

  Betty Grable…Back when movie stars had a butt and hips and that was completely normal.  The number one pin up gal of World War 2 was Betty Grable.  Had her legs insured by the movie company for $1,000,000.00.  Had her body painted on countless war planes, had her poster pinned up in hundred of thousands of lockers.  Miss Betty Grable, she just looks like a funny gal.  Someone you could hang with.  For me, the most famous of her movies is How To Marry A Millionaire with the equally as fabulous Miss Lauren Bacall, (and of course MM) these gals had spunk.  Take in a few of her movies, it will be well worth it and something a little different from a few of the choices we have at the moment.


  Miss Sophia Loren, wow, that gal is all woman.  Only an accent would make her sexier, oh hang on…okay she is just perfect, right?  The old saying is she would look good in a potato sack applies here.  This woman is a strong, take no bullshit kinda woman.  There should be more of it I say.  What happened? Where did these kind of woman go and how did we end up with “actresses” like, lets say the Lindsey Lohan?  (and is Lindsey just famous for being a giant twat now?)  Sophia is getting on a bit now (78) and she is still awesome.  Love to watch her act, love her in interviews, just love her.


  The fabulous; Gene Tierney.  Absolutely in love with her.  She starred in two of my favourite movies.  The first being The Ghost and Mrs Muir, which was beautifully filmed and acted, this movie is still very watchable today.  Also starred Rex Harrison as the Captain (the ghost).  Very sexy Rexy I must say.  Gene plays the part of Mrs Muir, a widow and up and coming author, with a little help from the Captain.  Of course they fall in love, which is heart breaking.  It really pulls at the heart strings.  The final scene always makes me sob like a baby, always, every time, I try not to but, every time.   So if you need a good cry watch it.   The second movie is Leave Her To Heaven, what a bitch in this one.  Love the scene on the beach only because I love the swimmers she is wearing.  What a beautiful fabulous woman she was, but always looks sad even when she’s smiling.

Foot Note: Whilst researching this topic I discovered that there is such a thing as Wikifeet…I am not judging!

So do yourself a favour, go and watch these gals shake their things or just watch any old black and white movie.   They’re pretty damn good.
