Betty Grable

Betty Grable's, bathing suit photo made her the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II era. It was included in the LIFE magazine project "100 Photos that Changed the World". Grable was particularly noted for having the most beautiful legs in Hollywood and studio publicity widely dispersed photos featuring them. Hosiery specialists of the era often noted the ideal proportions of her legs as: thigh (18.5") calf (12"), and ankle (7.5"). Grable's legs were famously insured by her studio for $1,000,000 with Lloyds of London.


  1. OK Dawn, now I will have this image of Betty in my head all day. Great pic and thanks for the background details as well.
