He is not alone.

Or maybe he IS alone, thus the crush got stronger...  

anyway, I've always had a soft spot (or a hard one, depends) for Bettie Page even before her 're-discovery'.

Dave Stevens, in my opinion one of the few truly great comic artists of his generation, was obsessed with her too. Look around the nets and you'll find some really stunning images of his.

I do have a crush on her, but it's only a crush.

You can go here to read more about her (assuming it's accurate).  But here is an excerpt about her later life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bettie_Page

She moved to Southern California in 1979.[6] There she had a nervous breakdown and had an altercation with her landlady. The doctors that examined her diagnosed her with acute schizophrenia, and she spent 20 months in a state mental hospital in San Bernardino, California. After a fight with another landlord she was arrested for assault, but was found not guilty by reason of insanity and placed under state supervision for eight years.[6] She was released in 1992[8] from Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino County.

And  her only known recorded words HAD to be "of course I'm real: feel me, touch me, caress me".

"...see me, feel me, touch me..."

Could there be any more mic boom shadows??!!  There were so many, so often I couldn't keep track.

There was an interview on an LA radio station in 1997. She said she doesn't do video or TV appearances because she wanted people to remember her as she looked in the day. Lot's of thanks to Bunny Yeager.

That's a stunning photo!

As I checked out some info about her I came across these quotes that are attributed to Lily and King George VII as they were known to be lovers.

Edward once complained to her, "I've spent enough on you to build a battleship," whereupon she tartly replied, "And you've spent enough in me to float one".

Ouch.

OK it's cold here
