Story


Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori's "Bettie Page Reveals All" is an intimate look at one of the world's most recognized sex symbols, told in her own words for the first time.

In Mori's alluring documentary, the real Bettie Page emerges from the veil of myth and rumor via audio interviews taped a decade prior to her death in 2008. With earthy, razor sharp wit, Bettie tells her life story -- from humble beginnings as one of six children in an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to scandalous 50s pin-up model, to shocking retirement in 1957 at the peak of her modeling career. Sharing rare details about her short-lived first marriage and many torrid affairs, this keen insider's glimpse follows Bettie through decades of broken marriages, born-again Christianity, and bouts of mental illness, before her ultimate return to the public eye in the early 90's, unaware of her cult status. Ranked by Forbes in 2012 as one of the top ten posthumous celebrity earners, Bettie and her enduring legacy continue to flourish.

With a stunning array of gorgeous photographs, unusual archival material, and playful movie footage, "Bettie Page Reveals All" ALL shows how Bettie's unabashed sexual expression and provocative poses set the stage for the sexual revolution and ushered in a modern era in fashion. For stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce, as well as new generations of adoring fans around the world, Bettie remains an irresistible style icon and an empowering role model.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..much of the movie consists of footage and stills from Page's life and career, and face it: Looking at Page for some 90 minutes is a pleasure unto itself..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..so on the one hand, Mori gives us a delightful nostalgia trip, illustrated with lots of stunning, once-scandalous photos of Page in her prime..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
