Happy Birthday Betty Grable
Betty Grable was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1916. She started acting when she was just 12 years old, and signed a contract with Paramount Pictures in the 1930's. Betty was known not only for her acting, but for her legs! After Betty posed for her iconic bathing suit photo, she became the most popular pin-up girl during WWII. She was known as "the girl with the million dollar legs", as her studio had them insured for one million dollars! I love all these pictures of Betty in the 1930's and 1940's, she looks stunning in every different style.
