What Does Bettie Page Have in Common with Star Wars?

George Lucas' directives described the droid as the automated equivalent of Bettie Page, and the droid design quickly earned the nickname "Bettybot."

Renamed the BD-3000 droid, it can be seen briefly during the Senate landing platform scenes and the Galaxies Opera House scene. Read more about Bettybot here. and here.
