Bettie Page

Dave Stevens' Rocketeer (with Bettie Page)Image by The Rocketeer via FlickrBettie Page, a pinup queen from the fifties and an early Playboy Playmate died yesterday. She was 85 years old. She gained fame again later in life when artist Dave Stevens created "The Rocketeer" and modeled the main character's girlfriend after Bettie. This video is from the fifties and looking at it today you have to wonder at what once seemed so risque.

Bettie was the bomb. Dita Von Teese owes her a huge debt.
