Ms. Betty Page Moves On

Another cultural icon has moved on. Actually, I should say the lady that created the persona that we all know as that notorious pinup queen the 1950’s has passed on. 
A lot has been said about her charms and figure but what she really did was to stride the line between naughty and nice show the world at the time that sex and beauty could walk hand-in-hand without being smutty. That doesn’t mean she didn’t model for pictures that downright inflamed the starched collars of the day and still gets a fair number of people in an uproar even now. But you could not argue with that smile. I know that she was a role model for many dancers and burlesque artists and she will be sorely missed for the person she was. However, the icon that is Betty Page, is alive and well and living in our culture.
