Bettie Facts
  • Often called "The Queen of Pinups"
  • While risque, Bettie's movies and photos never featured any sexually explicit content.
  • In 1955, Bettie won the title "Miss Pinup Girl of the World"
  • Bettie's career lasted several years, uncommon for most pin up models who had careers that only lasted a few months. 
  • In 1959, Bettie converted to born again Christianity.
  • In the 1980's, Bettie's popularity surged again.  In a quote from MTV "Katy Perry's rocker bangs and throwback skimpy jumpers. Madonna's Sex book and fascination with bondage gear. Rihanna's obsession with all things leather, lace and second-skin binding. Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. The SuicideGirls Web site. The Pussycat Dolls. The entire career of Marilyn Manson's ex-wife Dita Von Teese" would not have been possible without Page.[27] Many rockabilly and gothic girls emulate Bettie's hairstyle with the black blunt bangs. You can see Bettie's hairstyle and timeless facial features emulated in many modern pin-up models, such as Bernie Dexter and Masuimi Max."
