Bettie Page, sans the bangs

From a homemade scrapbook found in a dumpster in the 1960s. Side by side photos of Bettie, one of them sans the ubiquitous Bettie bangs. Yep, I’m one of those rare people who are not obsessed with Bettie Page. I was tired of the Bettie cult by 1985. Not her fault, she’s great, but the unending Bettie worship wears thin. But some photos are impossible to pass up. Like this one from Vintage Sleaze.

Bonnie Logan again. This image is all over the place, but I cannot find a good quality scan of it. Sorry.

I can find no other references to a Dyna Spoutnik outside of this image from the French sleaze mag V. If you can shed any light on this babe, let me know!
