Bettie Page icon pin up dies at 85

Some iconic figures are just there. You cant escape from them weather you like it or not. Bettie Page who is EVERYWHERE dies at 85 by a heart attack.

How many artists and illustrators, tatoo artists and you name it, havent in some way been, in one way or the other, effected by the image of Bettie Page. She will for ever be a icon larger than her own self. With merchandise of her. Just look at the Dark Horse comics website. Read more about it in LA Times and the Swedish Dagens Nyheter.

Bettie Mae Page was born April 22, 1923, in Nashville.

Page made it into a few mainstream movies too, didn't she?

No. She went all religious again (like her conservative upbringing) and denounced her movies and that phase of her life. Have some of her movies on a DVD, really hard to get and all the good ones were destroyed by the producers. McCarthyism & conservatism pushed them into a corner!
