With a natural photogenic poise and a vivaciously innocent risqué flair, there never was a pinup model like Bettie Page. Through Page's own words and interviews with her closest associates, we explore her extraordinary life growing up in a troubled childhood until she found a wild career as the Queen of the Pin-up Girls. In doing so, Page would challenge the paranoid sexual repression of the 1950s with uncommon grace until she walked away at the peak of her career. We also follow her quiet troubled later years struggling with unhappy marriages and mental illness that threaten to consume her even as she found a higher faith. Despite those challenges, Page's popularity would rise again in a more accepting time to become a celebrated icon of fearless sexuality and beauty. Written by

Bettie Page Reveals All! is fascinating to watch with all her sexy images accompanied by her elderly voice reminiscing about those times
As someone who had previously watched The Notorious Bettie Page-the dramatized account of the pin-up queen-and Bettie Page: The Girl in the Leopard Print Bikini-another documentary about her, seeing a DVD of Bettie Page Reveals All! displayed on the shelf at Barnes & Noble-with the revelation that Ms. Page herself was narrating from recordings of interviews she did before her death in 2008 as well as the promise of so many of her pictures and short movies she made being shown-made me want to buy it right away and view it at home which I just did. Quite an eye-opener watching all those images of Ms. Page in all her sexy glory and then hearing her elderly voice with such a fascinating account of what she went through much of her life made this quite an experience to savor. So on that note, I highly recommend Bettie Page Reveals All!
