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.

Audience Reviews for Pin-Up Girl

Colorful and lively musical which surprisingly shows very little of Betty Grable?s famous legs. A nice variety of musical numbers pep up the film, Martha Raye heads a fine supporting cast and provides amusing relief. Good score, well produced. Nothing deep but very entertaining.

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.
