One of the pioneers of the pin-up movement has left us. Bunny Yeager (born Linnea Eleanor Yeager), a model turned photographer who helped to popularize the bikini, died Saturday at a hospice in Delray Beach, Fla., according to reports. She was 85.

Bunny Yeager, a model turned pin-up photographer who helped jump-start the career of then-unknown Bettie Page, died Sunday, her agent said. She was 85 years old. Yeager died at a North Miami hospice where she had been for about a week, her agent, Ed Christin said. Yeager's legacy is her cultural impact, from pin-up photography and fashion, helping to popularize the bikini, and influencing other artists such as Cindy Sherman, who read Yeager's guides on photographing nudes and making self-portraits, Christin said. "Anyone in Miami in the 1950s who wanted a bikini would come to her, and she'd make one," he said. »

Blu-ray, DVD, VOD Release: Bettie Page Reveals All

13 February 2014 3:14 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: April 22, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $34.95

Studio: Music Box

The 2012 documentary Bettie Page Reveals All takes an intimate look at one of the world’s most recognized sex symbols, the legendary pin-up queen Bettie Page.

The first and only authorized film biography of the “Queen of Curves,” the movie is filled with iconic and rare photographs and film loops, including unseen images from private collections, the real Bettie Page emerges from 40 years of enigmatic seclusion to tell her story in her own words via audio interviews taped a decade prior to her death in 2008. With her lively Tennessee twang , Bettie recounts her life — from humble beginnings as one of six children in an impoverished Southern family, to high school salutatorian, to scandalous 50s pin-up model, to a short-lived first marriage and series of torrid affairs, up to her retirement in 1957 at the peak of her modeling career.
