My Old Addiction

Pin-Up Girl


(out of 5)

‘s dullest musical is probably the one that brought her the most fame: the pin-up often seen in servicemen’s possession during World War II, of Grable’s famous legs supporting her ample frame in a sexy bathing suit (taken from behind because she was actually pregnant when it was taken) was from this film. She plays a California doughnut dolly who travels with a friend to New York to get a job in a big show. Along the way she impersonates an heiress, attracts the attention of a hunky sailor, and finally gets to be a big star. The final number, a sing-free march featuring Grable leading thousands of women through an endless parade, is as dry as they can be.
