A refreshing trip down memory lane

I am a post war baby boomer. My earliest recollection I have of a pinup girls is from "Family Classics" with Frazier Thomas. As a kid, me and my eight siblings would gather around the television set every Sunday for two hours. It was the only time my father would relinquish control of it. Sundays for us was like going to the movies, and "Family Classics" broadcast - an abundance of war films that featured pinup girls. Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner, Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall. Later I learned more about pinup girls and the role they played during World War II for servicemen. American movie classics news reels gave them hope that soon things would return to normal in the war would be over. Bombshells and Dollies was very refreshing to see up close and personal. This by gone era alive and well today, touching the hearts of veterans young and old, especially those who are now in the twilight years. It seemed to have somewhat of a cult-like following. Looking at the crowd, there were mostly baby boomers like myself. The cars, the Women were beautiful. I love their back stories but some of the tattoos took something away from the beauty of the women for me; I am not a big fan of tattoos. I wish there was more music. I like The Stray Cats but I'm not too big on rockabilly. Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, The Oak Ridge Boys are more my speed, but I could feel the vibes everybody was feeling. People were having fun and Vegas for the festival - perfect! The documentary was well scripted and directed. It made you feel like you were there. Kudos Danny Halperin, kudos! I'll give it 4 1/2 stars.

An interesting film for the #Metoo Era

"Bombshells and Dollies" provides an in-depth look at the world of beauty pageant culture that seems a bit anachronistic in the era of the #Metoo wokeness. For that reason alone, it is worth watching to understand the underlying attraction that draws participants from all over the globe. They invest enormous amounts of time and effort on everything from wardrobes to makeup in order to be selected as finalists for the annual competition held at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas. Each participant is glamorous and charming in her own way, and all are wholeheartedly dedicated to their craft. It is eye-opening to see that they find fulfillment in their roles as objects of adulation and desire by the predominantly male audience. The historical backdrop of the WWII era and the role that pinups played as a morale booster for the troops ties the past together with the present and provides context. The intertwining of Rockabilly music and meticulously restored classic cars is another element that captures attention. ' The viewer develops an affinity for the individuals involved, and it is also rewarding to see how the women bond over the course of the week's activities and become close friends. You hate to see anyone lose. Check it out for a nostalgic walk down memory lane.

Fascinating view into sub-culture

This is a very fun and moving view into a fascinating sub-culture I have never heard of.
