Bettie Page
    #1249608 - 01/26/03 08:22 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Here's a cool piece I found on  this page. It has a few quotes from a telephone interview with Bettie done in '96  :cool:



----------------------------------------

from = jbuhrmester@playboy.com
mesg = Hey! Great site!
I am a 23 year old Page fan and work here at Playboy.
Since I have access to some information,
I thought I'd share it with you. Rumor is that
Mrs. Page disappeared a long time ago.
I talked to Gretchen, the woman here in charge of
keeping track of all of the Playmates
and she gave me this update:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It still surprises Tennessee-born Bettie to hear that she's considered by many the greatest pin-up of all time. Her Playboy pose hinted at mischievous but innocent sexuality; a series of bondage shots taken by Irving Klaw veered into the perverse.

In his book "VaVaVoom! Bombshells, Pin-ups, Sexpots and Glamour Girls," Steve Sullivan describes "the fascinating duality of Bettie's photographs, which run the gamut from sunny innocence to sinister darkness....Readers could project their own deepest fantasies onto her image to a greater extent than any other model."

Senator Estes Kefauver tried to link Bettie with pornography and juvenile delinquency; in real life, she was a Bible college student. Bettie (and Betty) fan magazines--for years, no one knew how she spelled her name--proliferated even after she dropped out of sight in 1957, only two years after her Playmate bow. Nearly 40 years later, she was rediscovered, living a semireclusive life in California.

Among those who gained her confidence were Karen Essex and James L. Swanson, authors of the 1996 book "Bettie Page: The Life of a Pin-Up," and Dave Stevens, creator of the comic-book hero The Rocketeer. Dave had patterned the Rocketeer's girlfriend after Bettie, and he has now become one of her closest friends.

"Dave and I are good buddies," Bettie-then 73--told Gretchen Edgren, author of "The Playmate Book," in a rare 1996 telephone interview. "He chauffeurs me around to the doctor, to dinner, the movies, concerts and all. I like my good old-time melodies, and the original rock music from the Fifties. I don't care much for this hard rock or sheet metal or whatever it is," she said, chuckling.

Like many centerfolds of her era, Bettie didn't know her picture was going to appear in Playboy.

"A friend called me up and told me about it," she said. "And I've never met any of the other Playmates, except for Mrs. Hefner. I met her when Dave took me up to the Playboy Mansion. I liked her. She was very pretty, and her two boys are nice, polite little boys."

Bettie was also impressed with the Mansion. "In order to get in, you have to talk into a big rock. I never saw anything like that before. I was surprised to see Mr. Hefner coming to meet us in his purple silk pajamas and smoking jacket, but I understand he wears them around no matter now many guests he has."

Of her biography by Essex and Swanson, Bettie noted: "There were a lot of pictures in there that I had never seen before." She expressed surprise over "a little old strip set of me in there. Where that came from I don't know. I never posed for strip sets. It must have been the night they got me soused at a camera-club party in Manhattan and I don't remember what I did. It was the only time I ever got drunk in my life."

Bettie did like her Playboy centerfold. "Everybody did. Mr. Hefner even had large prints of it made up recently, and he and I signed them. I think he was charging too much for them, though--$500 apiece. Who's going to pay $500 for one old picture?"

These days, Bettie is reluctant to appear in public. She's gained some weight, she says. "I never had that problem when I was younger, but then I walked and went swimming a lot--and danced, especially. I used to be a fiend over dancing."

Sorry, I have been so busy lately with current crises that I have been remiss in my posting of r3tr0 pr0n, so here is a nice, amateur, color Bettie... :cool:



Bettie, like many models of her day, use to travel the photo club circuit, where she would charge the members photography clubs to pose for several hours of "glamour" photography. Many of these negatives and prints are still being discovered today. Often they are found in old boxes of stuff in an antic or agrage, and in estate sales... :wink:

I know I'm just posting stuff that I have already posted before, but it's still good! :laugh:

I've got thousands of Bettie Page pics, but I've been too busy lately to look through them, so in the mean time, here are some old classics...

Here is Bettie Page with the famous 1950's fetish photographer Irving Klaw...

Ever heard the Jazz Butcher song "Just Like Betty Page"? The Jazz Butcher featured bassist/vocalist David J. of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets fame. It's a great band and a great song! :cool:

Just Like betty Page
Jazz Butcher

Hey, hey, hey.

Can I see you again?
It's been such fun,
What we've done,
I should like to do it forever

Hey

Tell me, what do you say
If you say no,
I don't know,
What I'm going to do with forever, because

You ... have me
As far as I can see,
Roped and trussed just like Dear Betty Page
( Betty Page. Ask your dad. )

And I know, that it's fine
That sweet taste of Gwendoline
But you tie me up and I've no wish to disengage.

Hey, hey
Can I see you again
It's been such fun what we've done
I should Iike to do it forever

Hey

Look.. tell me, what do you say
If you say no,
And I don't know,
What I'm going to do with forever, because

You ... have me
As far as I could see,
Roped and trussed just like Dear Betty Page

Ooh, and I know, that it's fine
That sweet taste of Gwendoline
I don't want to disengage

Oh girl what you've done to me
Girl what you've done to me
Oh girl
Oh
