Opening Today: Bettie Page Reveals All

Posted by on Fri, Jan 3, 2014 at 12:09 PM

Attention lovers of burlesque and documentaries: Bettie Page Reveals All, the new film from the Oscar-nominated documentarian Mark Mori, begins its weeklong run today at SIFF Uptown. Here's the trailer, which gives a good overview of the film's components: talking heads holding forth on her influence, clips and stills of prime-era Page in action, a thorough chronicling of what exactly happened in the mythic "Bettie Page Story," and, best of all, narration supplied by Bettie Page herself (drawn from never-before-heard interviews she gave before her death in 2008). Full info here.

Probably not. It was still the '50s.

This reminds me of the movie "sweet and low down" where a fictional character essentially play Django Reinhardt, and I assuming here she plays "May West"
