Bettie Page remembered for icnonic good-girl-bad-deed notoriety
#1
She was the wholesome face of America's kinky secret -- even if no one saw that face for half a century.

Bettie Page, the notorious Southern gal-turned-dominatrix-turned pin-up-queen-turned born again Christian, died Thursday at age 85.

The details of her death are known: She had been hospitalized in Los Angeles for four weeks due to pneumonia, only to suffer from a heart attack.

It could be that the purpose of my life is only to serve as a warning to others.

How long had she been back in the public eye? Not much more than ten years, IIRC.

When she did re-emerge, Dave Stevens, creator of The Rocketeer was said to have aided her in recovering royalties for the use of her image over the years. Steven himself had used her as the inspiration for Cliff's (the rocketeer) girlfriend, Betty. Dave Stevens died in March this year.

That's only one example of her influece, though. Even people that have no idea who she is have encountered her likeness scores of times.

Wow, I didn't know Dave Stevens died either a while back. Either way Betty made an influence that is still remembered today. RIP.
I can imagine quite a bit.
