Bettie Page . . . turned down Howard Hughes!

In the fifties, just as it is today, the average career of a model was and is measured in months. Page was in demand for several years, modeling until 1957.

And, although she frequently posed in the nude, she never appeared in any scenes with explicit sexual content. When Howard Hughes, movie maker and billionaire, sent her a letter asking to meet her, she declined. (Which I personally, find quite fascinating.) Hughes was known as a "skirt chaser," had money and power and well, I guess it just goes to show, money can't buy everything.
