In November 1947 back in the United States Bettie Page filed for divorce. Klaw also used Page in dozens of short black-and-white 8mm and 16mm "specialty" films which catered to specific requests from his clientele. Cliff Secord's girlfriend Betty in Dave Stevens's comics The Rocketeer purposefully looks much like Bettie Page.
The latter part of her life was marked by depression violent mood swings and several years in a state psychiatric hospital. In 1959 Page converted to evangelical Christianity and went on to work for Billy Graham.
