Showgirl Kay Williams, farm girl from Erie, PA, would dress a number of major Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer musicals, later become Kay Spreckles and then marry Clark Gable during the last few years of his life. In 1944, Irene dressed her in a see-through negligee for a pin-up to inspire service men. She was appearing in the Joe Pasternak-produced Two Girls and a Sailor. The epitome of pin-up photography.
