Bettie Page: The Girl in the Leopard Bikini is an interesting look at her life, career, and impact
9 June 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

A couple of years ago, I watched The Notorious Bettie Page-a dramatized account of the pin-up queen's life and career with Gretchen Mol providing a nearly compelling portrayal. While I enjoyed it, however, it didn't reveal much about her childhood which is revealed here with many photos of her and her family which includes both parents before their divorce and her sister. There's also many clips of her color and black and white movies that helped her boss, Irving Claw, make plenty of money for his mail-order business. Then after Ms. Page retires, we are shown the effects of the sexual revolution including scenes of many porn movies made during the '70s. How much of what I mentioned in the last sentence has to do with Ms. Page's image as seen by the public by this time is open to speculation though the doc does somewhat make a strong case. I have to admit that perhaps because she's so much a part of the past that I don't consider her as sexy as some others that came after her but her stunning looks can still be fascinating to watch, even today. So on that note, I'm recommending Bettie Page: The Girl in the Leopard Print Bikini.
