Bettie Page, the ever-smiling, zaftig brunette with trademark bangs who became one of America's most famous and notorious pin-up girls in the 1950s, died in Los Angeles Thursday after having her life support removed following a heart attack. She was 85.

"She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality," her agent, Mark Roesler, said. "She is the embodiment of beauty."

Page was a 27-year-old secretary when a photographer on the beach at Coney Island discovered her in 1950. She went on to star in a series of sensual and nude photographs, including a Playboy centerfold and some that featured her in sadomasochistic poses.
