Halloween Pin Ups

As those who regularly read this blog know, I usually the week before Halloween to posts fitting the holiday. Today I'd like to treat you to one of my favourite things, classic pin ups with a Halloween theme. From the Twenties into the Fifties, it was routine for the Hollywood studios to have pin up photos taken of their starlets as a means of publicity. These photos would often have a holiday theme, so that a startlet might pose with snowmen and a Christmas tree for Christmas, fireworks for the 4th of July, or jack o'lanterns and black cats for Halloween.

First up is the It Girl herself, Clara Bow.

Next is Betty Grable, with some reading material suitable for the holiday.

This is the bewitching Ann Miller.

And here is Anne Gwynne.

Next is Cyd Charisse

Finally, one of my all time favourite actresses and pin ups, the beautiful Elaine Stewart
