Goodbye to an Icon

Bettie Page April 22, 1923- December 11, 2008

Bettie Page was the most famous pinup girl of the post-World War II era, a centerfold on a million locker doors and garage walls.

Her naughty-but-nice poses appeared in men's magazines and private stashes across America and set the stage for the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

Ms. Page in the 1954 film "Varietease." In 1957, at the height of her fame, she disappeared.

With trademark heels and bangs, in the 1950s.
