"Betty" Grable (December 18, 1916 - July 2, 1973) was an American actress, dancer, and singer. Betty Grable was a number one pin-up model during the Second World War. Her bathing-suit photos was something that enamored everyone who saw them during those times, so much so that it was included in the list of 100 Photos that Changed the World. She was known by several nicknames during her heyday in the '40s, including "the girl with the million dollar legs, "the quick-silver blonde," "the queen of the Hollywood musical," and "the darling of the forties.

This photo in particular is quite glamorous. It was likely taken in the late 1930s by the studio system. Looks to be at the same time George Hurrell took Betty Grable's photographs in May of 1937 for Paramount Studio. The photograph was autographed in a fountain pen to George Keeney. It reads "To George Keeney, Best Wishes, Sincere, Betty Grable". Later George Keeney became the Major of Sausalito, CA. The photograph has a single crease line about 3" long going across the top of her shoulder and under Betty Grable's chin, it is in otherwise fine condition.
