Thursday Thirteen: Hollywood, 1940

Here's a list of the thirteen most popular actresses of the 1940's with the most popular one being first and the least popular last. I've seen most of them in old movies, but there are some I don't know. I've never heard of Gene Tierney, and she's high of the list. How about you? Do you know these girls?

The picture is of Betty Grable. She was a pinup girl popular with the soldiers in World War II. They said she had million dollar legs.
