Added DiffLines:

-->'''Bettie:''' Adam and Eve were naked in the Garden of Eden, hm? When they sinned, ''they put on clothes''.

Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: Inevitably, near the end, someone recognizes Bettie when she's handing out religious pamphlets as "the notorious Bettie Page!"

Added DiffLines:

* SouthernBelle: She lives up to her Nashville heritage.


* {{Hypocrisy}}: Irving's lawyer brings up the fact that mainstream work, such as ''[[Franchise/Tarzan Tarzan And The Slave Girl]]'' do the exact same kink that the Klaws do, and in some way worse as the victim often has wounds on her.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerized}}: A mild case, but the film gives the impression that all Bettie did was fun CasualKink. She did some pretty hardcore BDSM stuff in real life, too. The film also ignores her later mental illness.
