BETTY GRABLE IS THE LEAD NOW AT LOEWS; .WATERBURY Wherever there's a thumbtack and a man, you'll'find Betty Gra- blc! It's as inevitable as that.- For tho simple, unadorned fac! of the matter Is lhat. Betty stand- today as America's undisputed No, 1 "Pin Up Girl." Seven million .service men. .v .from Guadalcanal, to Salerno,., from 'Akron to Alaska whose barracks, tents, planes and tanks her likeness adorns, can't be wrong! Nor. can the millions of home-front, fans who haven't boosted to the pinnacle of screen suc- coss. What with her pin-up status and her personal contributions lo morale building in hospitals, army camps, naval stations and points of troop concentration- throughout the country, Miss Grable has become a distinctive, stream-lined symbol of our times. Thus it was no accident that 20th Century-Fox decided to make a motion picture celebrating Miss Grablc's eminence in ihc esteem of the men- of the armed forces and the public generally: The .spectacular Technicolor produclibn of "Pin Up Girl," which stars Bclty Grablc and opens today at Loew Poli theater, is practically a command performance. And in further tribute to her unique position as a sensational real life personality who warrants- a salute In an especially patterned film production, the stu- riio surrounded i-her- with a brilliant array of talent, • Including John Harvey, Martha . Rayc, Joe E. Brown' and Eugene Pallettc and featuring Charlie Splvak and his orchestra. . . * 1 The co-hit on this hit program is "Candlelight In Algeria," with James Mason.
