A Great Brunette Has Passed Away

Bettie Page, at the age of 85.

Bettie Page, the bombshell pin-up queen who both titillated and outraged Americans during her legendary career as a model and actress in the 1950s, has died at the age of 85.

Page never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack last week in Los Angeles, said her agent, Mark Roesler. Before the heart attack, Page had been hospitalized for three weeks with pneumonia.

“She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality,” Mr Roesler said. “She is the embodiment of beauty.”

Page, who was also known as Betty, attracted national attention with magazine photographs of her sensuous figure in bikinis and see-through lingerie that were quickly tacked up on walls in military barracks, garages and elsewhere, where they remained for years.

Military men and mechanics. They know their pin-up girls.

Here’s a link to her photo gallery which includes some very interesting and erotic photos.
