    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.
