Released this week on Blu-ray and DVD, Bettie Page Reveals All is filmmaker Mark Mori’s 18-year labor of love documentary on who is arguably the world’s most popular pin-up model. With her voluptuous figure, down to earth smile as well as intriguing life story, Page’s continued transcendence doesn’t surprise the Oscar nominated director.
“It’s her authenticity,” said Mori, whose previous work includes 1991’s Building Bombs. “This is why her photographs are so appealing. She’s so relatable. She’s gorgeous but there’s a real person there. It comes through in her eyes and what she’s doing. There’s no artifice. She’s just being genuine.”
Hugh Hefner, pin-up model/photographer Bunny Yeager, and Page’s ex-husband Harry Lear are among the interviewees featured in the documentary.
The DVD extras include deleted scenes, restored videos of Bettie Page (she called them her “wiggle” movies), and the full length phone call between Page and the late Paula Klaw (she was portrayed by Lili Taylor in the 2005 film The Notorious Bettie Page).
