The Amazing Bettie Page

Born in Nashville Tennessee in 1923, Bettie Page would grow up to be the Queen of the 1950s pin up girls.




Maybe not as well remembered as Marilyn Monroe or even Jayne Mansfield but in her hey day Bettie's pictures adorned many a young mans wall.

Bettie was known for her rather risque for the time pictures, including full frontal nude shots, quite rare in the 1950s.
Here is a video of Bettie dancing with an added modern sound track.


The Notorious Bettie Page is a 2005 film starring Gretchen Mol as Bettie , it is well worth checking out.
