The girl with the million-dollar legs
Another centenary to celebrate today - the "girl with the million-dollar legs", Miss Betty Grable.
"I'm a song-and-dance girl. I can act enough to get by. But that's the limit of my talents."
"The practice of putting women on pedestals began to die out when it was discovered that they could give orders better from there."
"You're better off betting on a horse than betting on a man. A horse may not be able to hold you tight, but he doesn't wanna wander from the stable at night."
"It's loud, it's cheap, it's gaudy. It's like everything I've ever done - I LOVE IT!"
"There are two reasons why I am successful in show business and I am standing on both of them."
Elizabeth Ruth "Betty" Grable (18th December 1916 – 2nd July 1973)
