Bettie Page

How many comic book artists have been inspired by Bettie Page? Everyone knows what a Bettie Page haircut is. I think when folks look back at the film icons of the 20th century Bettie Page will rank up there with the likes of Marilyn Monroe:

Bondage Babe Bettie Page Dies at 85

“Fifty years after the fact, she earned pop-cultural icon status. There are a dozen books about her, and a half-dozen movies, including the 2006 biopic, The Notorious Bettie Page, starring Gretchen Mol. Not to mention a bunch of tribute songs, countless websites and, almost always, more than a thousand products for sale on eBay. For just $6.99 you could get a Bettie Page ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ Metal Candle Tin & Candle, which “features an image of Bettie Page in red lingerie and licking a whip.” And who’ll bid $19.99 for the Bettie Page Retro Cincher Corset Lot? The annotation reads: “Bring out your inner Bettie!””
