LORETTA YOUNG gorgeous vintage c. 1930 sexy leggy pre-code cheesecake pinup photo

A phenomenal and desirable 8×10 vintage original Warner Bros. Pinup photo of Loretta Young c. 1930 when she was 17. Leggy pinups of Young are of extreme rarity and this one is the best we’ve seen of one of the all time film beauties. Because of the rarity of the image we have put a small paper in the upper corner. Except for a tiny upper left corner tear, the photo is near mint – this was found in an unopened folder in a Warner Bros. The Hollywood pinup which began with Mack 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. 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.
