PIN UP GIRL (1944) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Martha Raye, Joe E. Brown, Eugene Pallete, Betty Grable, John Harvey, Condos Brothers, Charlie Spivak Orchestra
Directed By:  H. Bruce Humberstone
Composed By:  Emil Newman, Mack Gordon, James V. Monaco, Charles Henderson

“One of those escapist film-musicals which makes no pretense at ultra-realism. It’s all very pleasing and pleasant. In Technicolor® Grable is a looker in pastel shades and spades. All combined it makes for merry movie moments.”
– Variety

“Grable and singing rival Rae, both engaging troupers…, do their best to liven up the proceedings, and there’s a rousing uniformed finale in which Sgt. Grable puts the female chorus through their parade ground paces.”
– John Pym, Time Out Film Guide

Real life and reel life happily intersected for vivacious Betty Grable, she of the vaunted, iconically photographed “million dollar legs,” seen to great effect in the custom-tailored Technicolor® musical vehicle Pin Up Girl (1944). A loosely assembled but consistently bubbly diversion about a yarn-spinning USO hostess playing a dizzying game of dual identities with potential soldier beaus while passing through New York, it also gives ample room to comedy favorites Martha Raye, Joe E. Brown and Eugene Pallette. Toss in superb Condos Brothers tap dancing, the swing stylings of Charlie Spivak and His Orchestra and the rolling revelries of the Skating Vanities and you’ll gladly put a pin in this World War II-era delight.
