From the City of Angels comes sad news: Bettie Page, 50s pinup and fetish model extraordinaire, has been hospitalized following a heart attack. America's most wholesome bondage idol is, rather astonishingly, 85.
From all accounts, she's had a hard life that has included meagre returns for the, in its own way, staggering fame that has accrued from her stag loops and girlie pictures. That's a shame, for she was one of the most remarkable-looking, photogenic women one can think of.
She's been photographed of late only a handful of times. In all that I can see, she is still startlingly lovely. Let's hope for the best for her.
