The life of Bettie Page, a 1950s pin-up model and one of the first sex icons in America, who became the target of a Senate investigation due to her risqué bondage photos.
The characters of real-life bondage photographers Irving and Paula Klaw were actually brother and sister, not a married couple as many critics erroneously reported in reviews.
What's the matter, Bettie?
Bettie Page: It's your language, Mr. Willie.
John Willie: Oh, it's just an old army ditty to help keep our spirits up while fighting the beastly Hun. Do you approve?
Bettie Page: I believe in Jesus.
At Bettie's first Klaw photo shoot (in the early 1950s), the record Paula plays for Bettie to dance to is Esquivel's "Mucha Muchacha," recorded in 1961.
