Elizabeth Grable, American actor and entertainer, 19161973

She appeared in 42 films, many of them Technicolor musicals, including Moon Over Miami, Down Argentine Way, Pin Up Girl, and Springtime in the Rockies. Over a million U.S. servicemen in World War II had a pin-up photo of her, looking back over her right shoulder, wearing a bathing suit which showed off her legs (Which were soon insured for $1,000,000). In 1946 she was the highest paid woman in the United States because of her box office power (She was Fox's main star from 1940-1955). She was married twice, to actor Jackie Coogan, then bandleader Harry James.
