    Description

    Moon Over Miami (20th Century Fox, 1941). Fine+. Insert (14" X 36").
    A resplendent full-length Betty Grable, who was voted "Best Figure" in the year this film premiered, features on this excellent insert. With her spectacular figure displayed in a stream of dazzling outfits in this film, Grable would become the highest paid star in America and see her legs insured for a million dollars. She once quipped, "There's a reason I'm successful in show business...and I'm standing on both of them." Pinup artist Alberto Vargas created some of the poster images for this Betty Grable Fox musical, and is often attributed with the sultry artwork that graces this desirable insert. However, some believe it to be the work of McClelland Barclay, as he was doing freelance work for Fox around the time this campaign was done. Regardless, the image is a stunner, making this a highly sought after poster. The insert shows edge wear, creases with extra horizontal folds, and small tears. There are a couple of minor chips, as well as small paper lifts and surface indentations in the borders and image. There are some stains and smudges towards the edges, a few faint stains in Betty Grable's image, and the insert displays mild toning. There are a few strips of cellophane tape on the verso.
