Girl Fighting movies - the kind you like! Yes, it's the work of the notorious Irving Klaw, whose name sounded like a 1950s delicatessian owner-turned-pro-wrestler. His ads were a standard feature in Whisper-type mags. The movie “The Notorious Bettie Page” paints him as a mild fellow who just wanted to take pictures and make some money, but I’m still of the old-fashioned opinion that men who like pictures of women tied, trussed, helpless, and wide-eyed with fear are not assembled according to instructions, and may have some vital parts loose. This stuff was rather harmless, though. Lili St. Cyr was another professional undresser, born in Minneapolis.

Here’s Bettie.
