Is My Palm Read (1933)
In Is My Palm Read, Betty visits Bimbo the fortune teller for some advice, but Bimbo is only interested in making time with Betty. Bimbo's crystal ball predicts that Betty will be shipwrecked on a desert isle (during which time she sings part of the Irving Berlin song "All by Myself"), and attacked by evil spirits resembling poltergeists, but rescued by Bimbo. When Bimbo reveals himself by removing his fake beard, a happy Betty embraces him. Unfortunately, a group of the ghosts from the vision burst in on this scene, and chase the two to the desert isle. Betty and Bimbo eventually escape from the ghosts by tricking them into going off a cliff into the sea.
- Bimbo: "I will now bare the naked truth of your baby days!"

- A strategically pale light reveals Betty's nude outline under her dress. Bimbo's crystal ball also shows a nude baby Betty (Baby Boop) taking a bath.
- The waves that wash Betty to shore on an island spank her once. Then she walks ashore and takes off her wet outer clothes out of sight behind what appears to be a boulder, but it turns out to be a turtle that sticks out its head and legs and walks off, exposing Betty in her underpants and bra. She blushes and runs behind some shrubs, where she puts on a skirt made of palm leaves (with her bra exposed) before reappearing.
