One of the earliest Playboy models who later became a Christian missionary, even as she retained cult-figure status as a pin-up and bondage model, Bettie Page lies in a coma in California after a heart attack.


Her photos included a centerfold in the January 1955 issue of then-fledgling Playboy magazine, as well as controversial sadomasochistic poses.


Page later spent decades away from the public eye, and during that time battled mental illness and became a born-again Christian.


After resurfacing in the 1990s, she occasionally granted interviews but refused to allow her picture to be taken.


Is there any way to explain what it was about Bettie Page that made her so popular, even during the years when she was in seclusion?
