Iconic 50's pin-up model Bettie Page has passed away at the age of 85.

She had a very turbulent life," Todd Mueller, a family friend and autograph seller, told The Associated Press on Thursday. "She had a temper to her."

this is terrible; it seems as though she went easy... I had no idea she worked for billy graham. Her childhood home is three doors down from my friend stephen; sad there isn't even a plaque there.

"She had a temper to her."

But also a fine figure, and a heck of an attractive face.

It's amazing...her modeling carrer lasted a mere 7 years...and yet she's an icon of American culture. The stuff legends are made of...RIP,Bettie.

I never thought Bettie was all THAT gorgeous... though of course she's easy on the eyes.  Her magic was more in her attitude, her smile, and the way she made sexual deviance seem wholesome and all-American!  She always seemed to be enjoying herself; even if she was gagged and hogtied, she always looked like the one in control.  R.I.P.

I think she had a close relationship with IRVING KLAW and his sister PAULA KLAWIRVING died decades ago, but the KLAW family still operates Movie Star News in Manhattan from which prints from original negatives may still be purchased (I never bought any, but did use to receive their catalog.) 
Good night BETTIE, we hardly knew you.

Well she had a good run!   Thumbup

Incidentally the arthouse film 'The Notorious Bettie Page' was a pretty good film.  See it!

Apparently Hugh Hefner helped her out in later life with what the press release called 'financial and legal issues'.

She made dressing up in a leather corset and whipping tied up girls seem like a most wholesome activity.  No matter what, you knew it was all in good fun.

Much better than today's porn, where the girl's shame and humiliation is most of the point.   Hatred
