The 1940's were probably the most popular pin up era. They played a key role during WWII by keeping soldier's morale up, instilled hope, and provided a brief distraction from the war they were fighting. Many Hollywood stars including Betty Grable, Ava Gardner, Jane Russell, and Carole Landis helped contribute to the war effort and became highly sought after pin ups.
