Bettie Page TV Interview

[Thanks to Irv.]

"People said it was my smile. That I looked very happy, that I enjoyed my work, and I did." -- Bettie Page 

I agree. Bettie's body was fab, but it was her happy and beautiful smile and vibe which made her rare. Joy goes much deeper than mere sex.

"They keep saying I'm some sort of 'sexual innovator'... I never thought of any of my poses as being sexual in any way, I never had anything like that in my mind." --- Bettie Page

I think the model trying to be sexy is usually detracting.

"I never thought I was doing anything wrong by posing nude, because after all, I don't believe God disapproves of nudity, he put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, naked as jaybirds..." -- Bettie Page

Looks like there's a movie about her.

Yes, I enjoyed the movie, and the actress looked good and much like Bettie.

Ah, poor TC. Always a day late and a dollar short.

Alex said...

That was one of the best in-flight movies I had. There is another film about her too.

As for Gretchen Mol.

Anyway, this is all back in the 60's, so we are all a day late, and the dollars hardly worth anything these days. Can it even buy a candy bar?

Bettie forgot that it was also God who took the skins of animals and covered Adam and Eve to hide their nakedness. See Genesis 3:21.

I have to admit, though, that Bettie looked better uncovered than covered, whereas most of us look better covered up.

It should be noted that our world lost Bettie Page on Dec. 11, 2008. She was 85. Sigh...

That was enjoyable. Thanks!

There's a porn star named Shannon Rush who has that smile thing. I'm not a huge porn consumer but I'd consume anything Miss Rush produced. She looks so sweet and I heard someone say that she indeed is.
