Group Description

1942 Glamour

"As a dancer Wendy Toye was already a seasoned professional by the age of 14, when the great ballerina of the then Vic-Wells Ballet (forerunner of the Royal Ballet), Alicia Markova, came to take a class in the same hall over a pub near Holloway Prison."

"You most likely know Betty from her famous WWII cheesecake pin-up poster, with her hair up, in a one-piece bathing suit peeking over her shoulder. It is rumored the shot was taken from her backside because she was pregnant at the time. Betty was best known for her amazing legs which were insured for a whopping $1,000,000 by Lloyds of London. Her last big hit was How to Marry a Millionaire with Lauren Bacall and Marilyn Monroe. She married twice and died of lung cancer at the young age of 56."

"Manila is captured by Japanese forces. The Japanese Admiral stays in Solvec (owned by Charles Henry de Silva), Philippines."

"Opening on a close-up of a menacing German Shepherd guard dog, the film shows us just what the dog may be guarding: a Chinese government compound, circa 1942. We are ushered into the Yees' sumptuously decorated parlor during a rapid-fire game of mahjong between Mrs. Yee (Joan Chen) and three other well-dressed Chinese wives."
