With so much hype around the new movie “The Notorious Bettie Page”, how could we not join in?
Bettie Page (or Betty, as she is credited in her photos and movies) is a sex icon, and rightfully – with her devilish grin, trademark bangs, and voluptuous figure so rarely seen today, her image is one of the most recognizable (and most photographed) today. Her legendary status can be credited to the photography team of Irving and Paula Klaw in the 1950s, who answered fan requests to see Betty Page in fetish themes – performing spankings and whippings, while wearing high heels and the ultimate in corsets, leather and lingerie… and always with a smile.
I know you’ve all seen the photos, but you can watch the 8mm movies here: The Classic Films Of Irving Klaw – Featuring Betty Page No. 1 and The Classic Films Of Irving Klaw – Featuring Betty Page No. 2.
Betty Page’s naughty pin-up image has inspired many – in the mainstream and fetish culture. From Darla Crane‘s portrayal in Metro Interactive‘s The Reincarnation Of Betty Paige to modern day pin up legend Dita Von Teese.
Of course, Betty wasn’t and isn’t the only woman in the world of vintage sex and glamour! Sunset Software offers a whole series of Classic Striptease & Glamour Films featuring beloved sexkittens from the 1930s to the 1960s. Elizabeth Starr from Starr Productions knows that retro glam is where it’s at, as you can see in her series Elizabeth Starr’s Back To The 50s Burlesque and Smoke-O-Rama (health-conscious beware, but you know you can’t resist that smoky sexiness reminiscent of years past). NV Productions produces short movies with bondage storylines and uses authentic vintage 1940s and 1950s lingerie and costumes. There’s nothing better than the real thing!
