Bettie Page Trivia . . .



Trivia

  • The third track on Paul Spencer's debut album, The Whole Shebang is entitled "Bettie Page". The song includes the lyric "Locks the world in a cage, she's kinky like Bettie Page", paying tribute to Page's notorious risque photographs.
  • In one of his numerous fictional back-page biographical sketches, Harlan Ellison claimed to be "writing a biography of Bettie Page for young adults"[3]
  • Montana Wildhack, a character from the novel Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, may have been modeled after Bettie Page. This fictional character was a pinup queen that mysteriously disappeared at the height of her popularity. The book reveals that she was abducted by aliens called Tralfamadorians, and she is being kept in a zoo with Billy Pilgrim, the novel's protagonist. Depending on how the book is interpreted, this might be part of a delusional fantasy on the part of Billy Pilgrim.
