About this title

Synopsis:

Hardcover book about Betty Grable

From Library Journal:

As the (overstated) subtitle of this book indicates, Grable's story is the now-familiar sex goddess litany of alcoholism, abortions, child abuse, failed affairs, and misery. Despite occasional hyperbolic statements regarding Grable, Pastos is careful to point out her shortcomings as well as recount her triumphs, and he has done a good job of researching his subject. The prose of Pin-Up is serviceable. Recommended for special collections; public libraries should buy as demand warrants. John Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Freehold,
Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.
