(1914-1996) — Dorothy Lamour, a comely brunette who was also a favorite pinup of thousands of GIs during World War II, was in her heyday at a time when the major studios believed that certain actresses needed something of a signature. While Veronica Lake peered out from behind the lock of hair that invariably hid part of her face, Lamour had her trademark sarong. She wore that clinging garment in a series of films, from the 1936 "Jungle Princess" through such 1940s comedies as "Road to Singapore" and "Road to Morocco." During the war, Lamour was also known as "the bond bombshell" because of the volunteer work she did selling U.S. War Bonds — she was credited with selling some $300 million worth by war's end.
