So long, Bettie!

davestevens4Like many others of my generation, I was too young to catch Bettie Page in her prime as a pinup queen of the 1950’s.

I discovered her in the pages of Dave Stevens’ comic The Rocketeer. Dave’s loving homage to Bettie was recreated in the movie version by Jennifer Connolly.

Bettie passed yesterday, and Dave is gone too, and I miss them both.

    Yeah, Bettie Page was a beautiful woman. Incredibly a movie was made about her, (The Notorious Bettie Page), that was kind of boring. It has been suggested that a movie about her and Dave Stevens would be very interesting. You know, young artist infatuated with a women from another time, uses her as inspiration for a character and brings about a resurgence of her career.
