Golden Age Hollywood Glamour
A rare and superb vintage 8x10 of the beloved Shirley Temple, a rare risque pinup showing her bare midriff. A proof photo that was apparently never issued, it was found in the papers of a Warner Brothers Executive by his family after he died. Pinup photos of Temple are basically non-existent, this is a great discovery. Lower right corner torn, slight creasing, otherwise fine.
The Hollywood pinup which began with Max Sennett's famous "Bathing Beauties" reached its zenith in WWII. Evelyn Keyes, one of the most popular of the WWII era pinup girls, wrote in "Scarlett O'Hara's Younger Sister": "It was our patriotic duty to answer the gallant servicemen...with pinup pictures, the nakedest the Hays Office would allow...We females spent hours posing in bathing suits, negligees and shorts, jumping out of candy boxes for Valentine's Day. Posing with turkeys for Thanksgiving, sleighs for Christmas...it made us feel like such good Americans!" The pinup would endure through the Korean War and into the 1950s, when the more aggressive Men's magazines made them seem quaint and old fashioned. Today these photos, also known as "Cheesecake" are valuable collectors items symbolizing a time of more innocent glamour and beauty.
