  • Best Pin Up of WW II: Yvonne de Carlo vs Maria Montez (Round 1)

    Yvonne de Carlo

    (September 1, 1922 – January 8, 2007) In1940, when De Carlo was first runner-up to "Miss Venice Beach" and was hired by a showman as a dancer at the Florentine Gardens. She had been dancing for Granlund only a short time when she was arrested by immigration officials and deported to Canada, but in January 1941, Granlund sent a telegram to Canadian immigration officials pledging his sponsorship of De Carlo in the United States, and affirmed his offer of steady employment, both requirements to reenter the country. n December 1941, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor signaled America's entrance into World War II. During this period she engaged in morale boosting performances for U.S. servicemen. De Carlo was a favorite leading lady in the 1940s, and a recipient of many letters from GI's …. But most of you probably remember her as Lilly Munster.

    Maria Montez


    (June 6, 1912 – September 7, 1951) was a Dominican-born motion picture actress who gained fame and popularity in the 1940s as an exotic beauty starring in a series of filmed-in-Technicolor costume adventure films. Her screen image was that of a hot-blooded Latin seductress, dressed in fanciful costumes and sparkling jewels. She became so identified with these adventure epics that she became known as "The Queen of Technicolor." Over her career, Montez appeared in 26 films, 21 of which were made in North America and five in Europe.

          Hell, I thought Lily Munster was hot as a lad in the 60's, anyway!

              I didn't even need to see the pictures. Yvonne should just be crowned the winner of the whole contest.

                      Tough choice but I went with Ms DeCarlo. I remember her on many occasions at Christmas dinner next door to my mom's house. My next-door neighbor was her protege back in the '60's.

                            Definitely Wyvonne - She was great in The Captain's Paradise too.
