  1. Page made it into a couple of mainstream movies too, right?

  2. holy crap. I still have my postcards of Betty getting her heinie chomped by an alligator on the beach. she was hot… you know, before I was born…

  3. what a perfect photo of her

  4. nice tribute in the times…

  5. I thought long and hard about posting what some might consider to be “porn” here. This, however, is a fitting and tasteful tribute to a true American icon. Bettie, you will never be forgotten!

  6. A fitting tribute. Thank you.

  7. There was the standard obit in the NYTimes and a nice tribute also on her ‘influence’: especially on fashion, film (Uma Thurman in “Pulp Fiction”), the 1960’s: very nice acknowledgement of an icon.

  8. Aw, I love Bettie Page. A lot of cool people have died this year.

    Do you have those “tasteful” coffee-table books of old nudie photos in public libraries over there?

  9. It’s a pity she’s dead and all, but i *do* think her best work was behind her.

    PS One should always have the words “long and hard” in any comment/post about porn.

  10. Bettie Page’s legacy will live long and hard.

  11. Merry xmas Woeful xx
