Program: History Detectives
Episode: Bettie Page And The Forbidden Pinup
Sorting through a suitcase filled with 1950s educational slides, our contributor found a color negative of 1950s pin-up model Bettie Page, whose uninhibited style earned her the name “Queen of Pin-ups.” “Pin-up King” Irving Klaw supposedly destroyed most of his pin-up photos during a wave of 1950’s censorship. If this is one of Klaw’s photos, how did it survive?
