Bettie Page Reveals All

Last friday I attended the premiere of the documentary “Bettie Page Reveals All” at Toronto’s Bloor Cinema.  To start the show the radiantly beautiful burlesque pinups, Laura Desiree and Coco Framboise did their best Bettie impressions and sensually stripped for a cheering crowd.  The movie was an intimately detailed look into the life of the original pinup girl Bettie Page.  Since Bettie herself narrated most of the film you really got a sense of her fun, sassy personality and parts of the film were like listening to your grandmother tell inappropriate stories from her youth.  Even with a hard and troubled life, Bettie playfully described her love of sex and sexuality in describing her younger self and her relationships through her life.  She was a brilliant model with an unending supply of poses and facial expressions, a perfect pinup figure, and a carefree attitude that comes across in absolutely every photo of her.  Truly an inspiring woman who had a long, roller coaster ride of a life.  I definitely recommend watching this film, check out the trailer at the bottom of this post.
