Paper Dolls - Australian Pinups of World War 2 DVD
Directed by Angela Buckingham, Narrated by Claudia Karvan
Pinup girls during the Second World War were pictures of hope, fun and better times. Using archival footage, photographs and artwork of the period, this DVD shows Australia in a light rarely seen before. Newsreels captured how the war intensified life and extended separation from loved ones. Men who served in the Army, Navy and Air Force share how these pinup girls were morale boosters during a frightening and lonely period of their lives. Told through the eyes of three former pinup girls, the joyous stories and images of the pinups open a window to the hopes and dreams of a nation at war. Rated M - Occasional nudity, duration feature 52 minutes plus 11 minutes of extras. All Regions, PAL.
