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 real John Willie (portrayed by Jared Harris) never met Bettie Page. He did publish a photo of her in his Bizarre magazine, but it was shot by another photographer. Irving Klaw, who published many of Bettie's most famous photos, did publish some of Willie's Adv. of Sweet Gwendoline material.
I'm not ashamed. Adam and Eve were naked in the Garden of Eden, weren't they? When they sinned, they put on clothes.
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.
