She’s still known as “The Queen of Pinups,” and Bettie Page has even become a feminist icon. Photographed more than almost any model in the fifties, she was the most daring gal around. It was impossible to take a bad picture of the dark-haired and blue-eyed beauty. She was one of the first Playboy Playmates and changed erotic photography forever. Bettie Page was also unapologetic. Charged with indecency, she refused to plead guilty because it was all very decent to her. She kick started the sexual revolution. And at the peak of her popularity, Bettie Page just disappeared.
Now the new documentary Bettie Page Reveals All takes a long hard look at the scandalous sex symbol and promises never-before-seen pictures that were considered too hot to publish at the time. Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori assembled archival footage and interviews to show a defiant woman with a razor sharp wit. The Sultry Siren of the Southland still inspires fashion and sexual mores. She was willing to do outrageous things for the camera and the world fell in lust. She brought S&M imagery into the mainstream, because, for some reason, men like to see girls smacking each other–and no one had a firmer hand than Bettie Page.
Bettie Page Reveals All also features interviews with Mr. Playboy himself, Hugh Hefner, and Rebecca Romijn. It goes behind the story of a poor southern girl who challenged society’s sexual ideas to become the sexual ideal and finds a woman who didn’t even know she was famous. This is the doc that reveals how Bettie Page passed away with a Forbes ranking as one of the top ten posthumous celebrity moneymakers. This new trailer will give you a pretty good idea, too..
