Bettie Page, Rest in Peace

In MemoriumBettie Page was 85. She was the brunet pinup queen with a shoulder-length pageboy hairdo and kitschy bangs whose saucy photos helped usher in the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

She was a hot old broad.

She was only photographed once in the last 50 years and that was at Playboy's 50 Anniversary with Anna Nicole Smith and Pamela Anderson. That's a Playboy Mt. Rushmore if there was one (minus Marilyn).

For whatever reason, I know this kind of stuff.

I was reading up on her. You can't help but adore her after watching the joie d'vivre in the photos. It's not about sex so much as about just playing and having fun. But her years from her 40s to her 80s were very difficult, marred by mental illness, violence, poverty, failed marriages. But she kept her chin up and made it through somehow. I really admire her sprit.
