Video: Russell Patterson "Pin Up" Film

Cartoonist and illustrator Russell Patterson (1893 - 1977) shows "how to create a successful pin-up" in this short film "Pin-Up Girl." This is back in the (non-PC) day of "cheesecake" or GGA (Good Girl Art) -- where sexualized paintings of women were believed to "keep the men's spirits up during war" and, well, post-war too.

Models Leona Fredericks, Ruth Sitarr, Dorothy Partington and Carol Ohmart are part of this as well.
