    What no Norma Jean Baker a.k.a. Marily Monroe? She should definitely be number 1!! I also think Raquel Welch should be somewhere in the Top Ten.

    Why would you leave out Farah Fawcett Majors? She was probably the most popular pin-up in the seventies?

    • This list seems to a top 10 of pinup’s early history so Farrah doesn’t really fit in – perhaps the title should be Top 10 Classic Pin Ups or Top 10 Pinups of the 40’s, not sure…

  • Of course a great factor in Miss Page’s comeback was the late Dave Stevens, creator of “The Rocketeer”. The comic book artist based the Rocketeer’s girlfriend on Bettie, thus setting off her revival.

    Agreed that title needs “Classic” or some such added. Farrah had to have most copies printed.

    I never understood the appeal of the betty grable picture that was tops in WWII. it seems so ordinary at best, if not below average.I wonder if it was tops simply because the studio gave it away for free, and others came with magazines, calendars etc, that had to be purchased. Seems a case of ballot stuffing to me.

    i nver could understand why that Betty grable pic was such a huge hit in the 40s. To me it’s the most unnatractive picture of hre I’veever seen, and just terrible overall.but men went wild over it

      betty grable is a classic pinup pose showing her great legs. she was and remains the most important pinup of the 1940’s.

    during the 1940’s betty grable, rita hayworth and ann sheridan were the three most popular pinups during world war ll. during the 1950’s it would be marilyn monroe. 1960’s brigitte bardot, raquel welch. 1970’s farrah fawcett.
