"Looking at Page for some 90 minutes is a pleasure unto itself. But her actual voice gives the movie its richness." - The Village Voice
"Jam-packed with provocative photos and film clips... Riveting footage and interviews explore the iconic pin-up model's public and private lives... [and] the retelling of her post-modeling years proves even more riveting" - The Los Angeles Times
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.
