Betty Grable was one of the first American Pin-Ups.
Everyone remembers this iconic poster that launched in the early 70s and sold a record 12 million copies. The photograph was taken by freelance photographer Bruce McBroom for Pro Arts Inc., Ohio's number one and only Distributor of Youth-Oriented Posters, and was paid $1000. for the assignment. Farrah picked the swimsuit from her personal collection (even though the assignment was for a bikini shoot) to hide a scar on her stomach. This shot was the last one taken and the one that went on to sell millions.
Ryan O'Neal recently donated that bathing suit plus other items belonging to Farrah to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. Now that would be something to see!
