Fox Studios sold some of its land to developers in 1961, after losing a vast sum of money on the making of Elizabeth Taylor's "Cleopatra."

Cleopatra the eye art
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were amazing together on screen. Cleopatra might have done horribly in the box office but I will always love it.

Betty Grable - one of the original pin up girls, famed for her lovely legs, said to be the best in Hollywood.
Smiling coyly over her shoulder in swimsuit and pumps was the actress Betty Grable, whose iconic image above became the number-one pin-up of the World War II. It was a photographic masterpiece by Frank Powolny, who emphasized Grable’s beautiful legs. Hers were the ideal legs according to hosiery specialists of the era [thigh (18.5") calf (12"), and ankle (7.5")]. Grable was noted for having the most beautiful legs in Hollywood and studio publicity widely dispersed photos featuring them. They were insured for a million dollars at the Lloyds of London. (Throughout the 40s, Grable was the highest-paid female star in Hollywood, receiving $300,000 a year.) One in every five American servicemen during the war owned this picture of Betty Grable. It was, as LIFE magazine acknowledged, one of the photos that changed the world–not least because among the rowdy servicemen who owned the picture was one Hugh Hefner, who would later cite the pin-up as his inspiration behind Playboy.
Betty Grable Betty Grable legs! WWII pinup girl
Betty Grable: best known for the image you see above. She was the #1 WWII pinup. She was an actress, entertainer, & one of the twenty original Goldwyn Girls along with Lucille Ball. Her legs were actually insured for $1million each! She dated Desi Arnaz before he loved Lucy, & then married actor Jackie Coogan, who had also been a child star, in 1937. Their marriage ended in 1940 because of too much outside stress.
Betty Grable...the famous photo!
