    Description

    Framed Display of "Pin Up Girl" Betty Grable's Nylon Stockings. During the Word War II years, Betty Grable (1916-1973) was the most beloved of the pin-up girls, a super box office attraction heralded as "The Girl with the Million Dollar Legs." Indeed, her studio, 20th Century-Fox, actually insured Betty's legs with Lloyd's of London for...well, not a million, but a nevertheless impressive $250,000. This framed tribute to Betty Grable includes a pair of her nylon stockings, with the trademark information "Aristo," "Made in USA," "Nit of Dupont Nylon," "51 Gauge" and "15 Denier." Housing the stockings is an attractive 18" x 22" black wood frame, and matted inside above the nylons is a charming 8" x 10" color pose of breezily-blonde Betty, sporting a bathing suit, yachting cap and high heels. By the way, Betty Grable is among the stars immortalized in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theatre, where, on February 15, 1943, a member of the Army, Navy and Marines lowered Betty as she indented her leg in the cement. (She didn't wear stockings at the ceremony.) A sweet and sexy display, in Excellent condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
