    WWII’s best known pin-up girl, movie star Betty Grable, had this to say about her famous “Million Dollar Legs” in a 1943 issue of LIFE magazine: “They are fine for pushing the foot pedals in my car”. You tell ‘em, Betty!
    Betty's talents encompassed far more than just showing off a body part or two. Dancing, singing and starring in many 1940s films and musicals, she became the biggest box-office draw in the world in 1943, and the highest paid entertainer in the world in 1947.
    This week, we celebrate the look of Ms. Grable and the Golden Age of Hollywood musicals: circa 1940s and early 50s, Hollywood-worthy evening wear and accessories, plus 40s- and 50s-style shorts, dance/sports attire, and play-clothes--all ready to get a “leg up” on summer!

    We could see Betty wearing this Rose Marie Reid tucked bathing suit (lightened slightly to try to show those wonderful tucks better!). Private message for details and/or to purchase, please.
