  3. My uncle taught Bettie Page at bible school in Oregon. He didn't learn of her earlier career until after she had left the school: he said that she was intelligent but not functional.

    Bettie looks fantastic in still pictures but in the small bits of film I've seen of her, she moves in an odd, jerky fashion. She has a clumsiness to her, sort of like Debbie Harry. By contrast look at Marilyn Monroe. She is always smooth, elegant, her facial expressions and her motions are always intriguing and she appears effortlessly in command.

    1. That is so cool.... Wow.....

      Yeah.... Marilyn was grace but Bettie has something else. She never took a bad picture that I have seen. There is a new documentary in Bettie's own words that is really good.
