  1. Some great photos here! Sexy IS suggestive. Never blatant! A quote attributed to Sophia Loren: “Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got”.

  2. Oh my, legs galore, and aren’t they lovely. On this, the day of Marlene Dietrich’s “Summer Under the Stars” 24-hours on TCM, I thought a nod to her shapely pre-code legs would be timely – from “Morocco” (’30):

    Her legs seemed to become only more gorgeous with time…

  3. I cannot emphasise enough how much I love this post, and your prose about the sexiness of what is suggested, not shown in lurid detail. Fabulous blog, by the way!

  4. Watching a bunch of Pre-Codes, it’s quickly obvious how appreciated gams were. I’ve watched about 50 so far for my blog, and I’ve toyed with the idea of keeping track of how many times the camera pans up and down the legs of a shapely lady. The only thing stopping that is that just happens too often!
