Nurse Bettie. Jester Bettie. Substitute Teacher Bettie. Maid Bettie. Voodoo Bettie. Cowgirl Bettie. Jungle Bettie Throughout the 1950’s, Bettie Page ignited the world with her notorious bondage and burlesque poses. She has since emerged as a cult phenomenon, a femme fatale who symbolizes the birth of the sexual revolution.

In Varietease, a unique peek at the wonderful world of burlesque, complete with singers, slickers, and saucy strippers, America’s pin-up queen flashes her sexy smile and gyrating in a harem girl costume while performing her Dance of the Four Veils. Another buxom burlesque beauty, the sparkling Lil St. Cyr, shows how elegant a strip tease can be. Aiding and abetting are jokester Bobby Shields, bikini-clad Chris La Chris, exuberant contortionist Twinnie Wallens, and “famed female impersonator” Vicky Lynn. Produced and directed by girly-pix impresario Irving Klaw (the man who photographed Bettie in bondage) – he and Miss Page re-teamed the following year with Teaserama.
