Heads up Page fans.

New movie about your favorite pinup.

The Notorious Bettie Page

From the director of Oz and American Psycho. Starring Gretchen Mol who pulls off the look surprisingly well.

I'd post pics but...

There are a couple decent ones on Google.

I highly doubt that the movie will do justice to Miss Page.

I hope it does justice....



I listened to a interview of her on NPR a few years ago. It was done when she was old. Basically, she said modern women were whores with no self respect.

Yeah, it's hard to do justice to someone who made her living doing BDSM, bondage, light porn, etc. I mean, how do you do that without making it trashy??

I'll let the hilarity of that remark stand for itself.

There isn't a modern woman who shocked popular society as hard as she did in her youth. Pot, meet kettle.

I won't make any comparisons between DVT and BP, other than to say that DVT is clearly emulating BP.

You shouldn't.

I am not young, merely a person who does not indulge in porn, so there is a whole world of stuff that I know absolutely nothing about.

I won't make any compariaons either, but I have to say...Dita is HOT. Too bad about her awful taste in men.

Ever seen the nose art on most WWII bombers? She inspired most of it. You have seen her before and didn't know who she was.

I have seen such art, thus my wondering why a "pinup" would be so "notorious", as most pinups of the day were wearing enough clothing to qualify as nuns in modern society.

That's why I did a web search. The first lgoogle image search produced pictures of her wearing 40s and 50s style bathing suits and the like. Nothing very racy or "notorious". (I use the safe search option for obvious reasons...) Thus I figured the "notorious" label had to come from her personal behavior, and did a web search where I found websites devoted exclusively to her more.....unusual.......pictures.

The "notorious" is because she didn't simply do cheesecake in the 1950s. The fact that she did pics tied up and spanking women (which is pretty tame by current standards) was "notorious" back then.

I really don't get into the bondage stuff, while corsets and stockings look wonderful I am bored by BDSM and I'd rather skip it. The cool thing about Betty is simply the look, and like Monroe she is an icon of that age.

It may be hilarious, but it's also true.

On the other hand Manson moved way up. Dita > Rose McGowen.
But Bettie Page in her prime > Dita, no question about it.

Add her to the list with Carmen Electra, Rose McGowan and about a 1,000 other beautiful but insane chicks.

I'm not sure she had done any modeling, or whatever, before the end of WWII.



Wrong Betty!!!! Betty Grable was one of the more popular images painted on US aircraft.
