1947. Dorothy Lamour was one of the four most popular pin-ups of World War II (along with Betty Grable, Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth). On the silver screen, clad in a sarong that was her trademark, she became famous as star in a string of jungle pictures; and as co-star with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in the phenomenally successful “Road” films. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
Dorothy Lamour piles her hair high for gala evening occasions. This hairdress was designed by Nellie Manley, who has charge of the Paramount Hairdressing Department under Wally Westmore.
