What she wanted to be first of all was a singer with a big orchestra. Then, like countless girls her age, she wanted to be a Hollywood star. And then, for years and years, she mulishly aimed at a career on Broadway. There may be Good Fairies who would make all three wishes come true, and God in His wisdom may sometimes grant one, but real life mostly fulfils none of them. At least Betty Page ended up not too far from her third goal - just a couple of blocks, to be exact: her New York apartment was only a short walk from Broadway. And she did become a star, even if her dreams never came true.
