Classic Hollywood Pin-Ups – Beautiful and Sexy Portrait Photos of 60 Famous Actresses from Hollywood’s Golden Age

America’s entrance into World War II back in 1941 triggered the golden age of pinups, pictures of smiling women in a range of clothing-challenged situations. The racy photos adorned lonely servicemen’s lockers, the walls of barracks, and even the sides of planes.

For the first time in its history, the US military unofficially sanctioned this kind of art: pinup pictures, magazines and calendars were shipped and distributed among the troops, often at government expense, in order to ‘raise morale’ and remind the young men what they were fighting for.

The heyday of the pinup was the 1940s and 50s, but pinup art is still around.
