Bye Bye Bettie

Bettie Page, Queen of Pinups, Dies at 85: “There were Bettie Page playing cards, lunch boxes, action figures, T-shirts and beach towels. Her saucy images went up in nightclubs. Bettie Page fan clubs sprang up. Look-alike contests, featuring leather-and-lace and kitten-with-a-whip Betties, were organized. Hundreds of Web sites appeared, including her own, which had 588 million hits in five years”

two more eulogies, one, from Monster Island, shares more pics, the other, from Like…Dreamsville, shares some memories, and some Applied Page-science soundtrack files.
