Betty Grable’s Legs – A $1 Million Hollywood Landmark, 1943

Betty Grable's 40 films grossed over $100 million at the box office and she was the highest-paid Hollywood celebrity between 1943 and 1951. But despite her exquisite singing and dancing skills, Grable was most famous for her legs. Duringthe height of her fame, she insured them for $1 million.

When Betty Grable was profiled in the June 7, 1943, issue of LIFE, she shared headline status with another entity: her own legs, which the magazine dubbed a "major Hollywood landmark" (her face is seen in only one of the 14 pictures thataccompany the story). The previous February, an impression of her leg had been immortalised in the cement in front ofGrauman's Chinese Theater.
