Rare pictures of pinup queen Bettie Page accused of inciting

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 16, 2013 11:38 am

ecades
after they were hidden away when Washington politicians blamed them for
corrupting a nation's youth, rare photographs of 50s pinup queen Bettie
Page are finally being released for auction.
Page,
who maintains a cult following decades after she stopped posing, is
still considered a powerful influence on pop icons from Madonna to Katy
Perry due to her iconic bangs and appearance in images that celebrated
bondage.

While
relatively tame by today's standards, McCarthy-era politicians thought
the images were contributing to juvenile delinquency and a senate
subcommittee investigation into the subject summoned her but never asked
her to testify.

Photographer
Irving Klaw, credited with creating fetish pinups, was so afraid of
repercussions after being called to testify at the hearing that he
destroyed roughly 80 per cent of the prints and negatives featuring Page
and closed his business.

Luckily Klaw's sister, Paula, hid some away, which are now being offered at auction by Guernsey along with the couple's massive [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of images of screen icons like Marlon Brando and Marilyn Monroe, the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] reports.
Page
retired from modeling, and in later life became a born-again Christian
even working for the Rev. Billy Graham at one point. Retreating from the
spotlight, in a rare interview in 1993 she was shocked to discover the
images were still popular and described herself as 'penniless.'
