She was very well known and popular in the 1950s. Famed impresario, Harold Minsky, named her among the world's top ten exotic performers, partly because she "curves in and out nicely to the tune of 40-25-37".
- The INTERNET ARCHIVE has a video clip of Betty dancing in Moonlight Madness: "The one and only first and best stripper of her time..."
- Even Cuba loved Betty. She "Packed Havana Theaters 1956" -- excerpt:
- "...She's crowd pleaser and if the response of wide-eyed audiences at the Compoamar and Marti theaters in Havana are any indication, Minsky knew what he was talking about.
Says Betty about all this, "I like it."
This attitude is one of the things that's made her a top-runger in the doffing for dollars department. ..."
