Storyline

Glamorous Lorry Jones, the toast of a Missouri military canteen, has become "engaged" to almost every serviceman she's signed her pin-up photo for. Now she's leaving home to go into government service (not, as she fantasizes, to join the USO). On a side trip to New York, her vivid imagination leads her to True Love with naval hero Tommy Dooley; but increasingly involved Musical Comedy Complications follow. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

The 29 June 1943 'Hollywood Reporter' stated that Hermes Pan would be directing dance routines involving the Roller Skating Vanities of which Gloria Nord would star. However, Nord has no listed credit on this picture but apparently was an uncredited roller skating headliner. As such, she appeared as one of the skaters but did not "star" in the picture so to speak. See more »

Rather average musical

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.
