6½x8½ sepia image of Grable in fur wrap, signed in her flowing hand
Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/Betty Grable". Sepia, 6½x8½. Chosen by the GIs in WWII as their number one "pin-up girl", Betty Grable (1916-1973) appeared in a series of musicals and dramas in the 1940s and early 1950s. Fox publicity insured her legs with Lloyds of London for one million dollars. Among her hits were Springtime in the Rockies (1942), Mother Wore Tights (1947) and How to Marry a Millionaire (co-starring Lauren Bacall and Marilyn Monroe). Grable, getting ready to retire, cheerfully passed the mantle of Hollywood's leading sex symbol to Monroe. Grable was married to actor Jackie Coogan and bandleader Harry James.. Returning to the Broadway stage after her divorce, Grable was successful as a replacement for Carol Channing in Hello, Dolly. Corners worn and creased. Top edge lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
