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

Eddie Hall got his bit as a hitch-hiking soldier in this film with help from his good friend, Martha Raye. Which most likely has nothing to do with the fact the Joe E. Brown's role name in this film was Eddie Hall. See more »
When the female troop marches down the stairs toward the end of the sequence; the troop halts and does a rifle maneuver. But Laura Lorraine, who had given a command for every previous rifle maneuver, did not do so for this last one, therefore, the troop should not have executed it and just stayed in a halt position.

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.
