Rita Hayworth WWII pin up for YANK Magazine

During World War 2 all of the big Hollywood stars posed for pin up photos to raise the morale of the troops. The official US Army magazine was called YANK (is it just me that finds that funny?)

Lots of the big silver screen starlets of the time are here: Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Rita Hayworth (above), Gene Tierney, Esther Williams, Betty Grable, Ann Miller and even Lucille Ball (which somehow feels a bit like having a pin up of your mum – is that just me?)! Whose pin-up is your favourite? I think mine might be the lovely Rita Hayworth
