Pin Up Girl

Film, Drama

Time Out says

A peppy Washington stenographer (Grable) becomes entangled by chance with a Navy hero of Guadalcanal (Harvey), and to maintain the romance takes a night job as a singer in a swanky new club (run by Brown). Her fantasising past catches up with her, however, in the shape of one of her 500 'fiancés', a soldier to whom she gave a pin-up photo of herself when she was a service waitress back home in Missouri. Harvey's a vapid hero, and the script is nothing special (it's one of those stories where the hero fails to recognise his true love when she puts on a pair of spectacles and looks at him cross-eyed), but Grable and singing rival Rae, both engaging troupers despite the mugging, do their best to liven up the proceedings, and there's a rousing uniformed finale in which Sgt Grable puts the female chorus through their parade ground paces.
