The RIDGID TOOLS Girls of 1953



I understand the convention of pretty girls on a calendar.
I understand the double entendre of the company name.
I understand the suggestive poses with the oversize tools...

... but what's with the red, sore-looking knees?

You can see the rest of famous pinup artist George Petty's calendar art at the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive, a fabulous site that posts rarely seen artwork and documents from the golden age. Most of it without any sore knees at all.
