I think I read that her chest was insured for $50,000, or is my memory faulty and that figure is too low? A million would honor it properly. A million in 1952 dollars, that is!

You're very welcome, PTA. It's good to know that I don't spend ridiculous amounts of cash on all these magazines for nothing.
Taking of lots of cash; HTT, you are correct. According to Modern Man, her "45 1/2 inch chest is insured for $50,000...She got the state of Montana to issue her license [plate] number 50000 in honor of the Lloyds of London insurance policy".
