Could it be that this is the musical which really scraped the bottom of the barrel?

The script is nothing special, but Grable and singing rival Rae, both engaging troupers despite the mugging, do their best to liven up the proceedings.

It's all very pleasing and pleasant.

Inane wartime musical comedy flag-waver.

Frankly, this one isn't terribly good.

Audience Reviews for Pin-Up Girl


Really a mess of a movie, nonsensical and trite, however Betty, Martha and Joe E. Brown and SOME of the musical numbers make it worth at least one viewing.
