Bettie Page was described by many as the girl next door. She was always smiling and went to church every Sunday. She was also one of America’s best and most popular pinup models of the 1950’s and a pioneer of feminism and sexual freedom.

The film “Bettie Page Reveals All” takes a look at Page’s life from her troubled childhood to her illustrious career as a pinup model and sudden retirement at the peak of her career. Audio recordings from years prior to her death in 2008 help to narrate a personal look at one of America’s most popular sex symbols.

Mark Mori, director, “Bettie Page Reveals All”

Bettie Page Reveals All will be playing at the Landmark NuArt Theater in Los Angeles and the Westpark 8 in Irvine starting November 29.
