I've just seen Pin Up Girl for the first time and found it good in parts, but not brilliant.
Betty Grable plays a secretary and is a singer as well. She says she's engaged to every service man she has signed her photo for. She does fall in love with a man who's in the Navy and after several misunderstandings, she becomes engaged to him.
Despite being made during the Second World War, Pin Up Girl was shot in colour and it certainly is very colourful. There are some good songs and performances, although can be a little heavy going at times.
One viewing is probably enough for this movie. Not too bad though.
Rating: 2 and a half stars out of 5.
