Elizabeth Ruth “Betty” Grable (December 18, 1916 – July 2, 1973) was an American actress, dancer, and singer. Grable was celebrated for having the most beautiful legs in Hollywood and studio publicity widely dispersed photos featuring them. Her iconic bathing suit poster made her the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II era. Grable’s legs were famously insured by her studio for $1,000,000 with Lloyds of London. During her heyday in the 1940s, Grable had several nicknames: “the girl with the million dollar legs”, “the quick-silver blonde”, “the queen of the Hollywood musical”, and “the darling of the forties”.
