"A Best Film Book of 2013" - The Huffington Post To the soldiers in the armed forces during World War II, the pin-up girl was more than a symbol of lust. What the fighting man needed during that tumultuous period were entities of beauty that informed them there was goodness left in this world worth fighting for. The girls who posed for pin-up purposes best represented the beauty that yet existed. So on their barracks walls were images of Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth. Painted on the outside of their aircraft were life-size copies of Jane Russell and Gene Tierney. In their duffel bags were photographs of Veronica Lake and Rochelle Hudson. These famous celebrities, by posing for the boys in the military, used their uncommon appeal to reinforce in the mind of the sailor, soldier and marine that fairness was still present and needed to be defended. Their role was not simply objects of lust, but something more profound, which informed the fighting men that America was behind them—applauded them for their patriotism and sacrifices.
