  • Best Pin Up of WW II: Susan Hayward vs Veronica Lake (Round 2)

    Susan Hayward

    Susan Hayward (June 30, 1917 – March 14, 1975) Born in Brooklyn, she was out for the lead in Gone with the Wind, among others. Although she did not win the role, Hayward found employment playing bit parts until she was cast in Beau Geste (1939) opposite Gary Cooper. During the war years, she played leading lady to John Wayne twice, in Reap the Wild Wind (1942) and The Fighting Seabees (1944). She also starred in the film version of The Hairy Ape (1944)… huhm, what?

    If you have seen any old movies, you have probably seen this face. If you have not, boy are you in for a treat!

    Veronica Lake

    (November 14, 1922 – July 7, 1973) Lake was sent to Villa Maria, an all-girls Catholic boarding school in Montreal, Canada, from which she was expelled. Her breakthrough film was I Wanted Wings in 1941, a major hit in which Lake played the second female lead and was said to have stolen scene after scene from the rest of the cast. For a short time during the early 1940s Lake was considered one of the most reliable box office draws in Hollywood. She became known for onscreen pairings with actor Alan Ladd. At first, the couple was teamed together merely out of physical necessity: Ladd was just 5 feet 5 inches tall and the only actress then on the Paramount lot short enough to pair with him was Lake, who stood just 4 feet 11½ inches. A stray lock of her shoulder-length blonde hair during a publicity photo shoot led to her iconic "peekaboo" hairstyle, which was widely imitated. During World War II, she changed her trademark image to encourage women working in war industry factories to adopt more practical, safer hairstyles.

    Susan is pretty but I went with Veronica.

        Forgive me again Susan! How can any reader of WEB Griffin's Marine series NOT vote for Veronica?

                Some have opined that Veronica is going to make it to the finals. If she's in this close of a race now, I'm not sure how she is going to make it to the end.

                    Susan is lovely but Veronica is my top pick.

                    Oh my goodness I just bumped up lovely veronica to the lead 18-19.

                      Susan is great but it's Veronica for me.

                          I saw that first picture and I heard this voice say "Susan". Phwoar, what a stunner.

                            I'm thinking much the same thing. Given the professed popular support for Veronica before this, I'm slightly surprised it's this close although there were a lot of members who waxed lyrical about Susan too, now I think of it.

                            Still, we only have about half the votes in so far. We'll see.

                              I just pushed Susan into the lead at 25-24.

                              Neither one could have been my vote. My pulse rate remains the same.
