Betty Boop

Betty Boop

Betty Boop is best remembered for her red-hot jazz baby persona. With a head like a giant peanut, vast mascara’d eyes, too-kissable lips, baby-doll voice […], flattened marcelled hair, and mere threads of a dress exposing miles of hot flesh, she was the perfect celluloid sex toy.” – Gary Morris of the Bright Lights Film Journal.
