Review: 'Bettie Page Reveals All' shows another side of the pin-up
In the kicky documentary "Bettie Page Reveals All," the 1950s cult pin-up gal with the trademark bangs is called "the first icon of her nature," "an extraordinary creature" and a "revolutionary." But according to Page herself, who was captured in an audio-only interview by director Mark Mori more than a decade before her 2008 death, she was just an uninhibited young woman, comfortable with her photogenic looks, who enjoyed sex, posing and making folks happy. She was the girl next door, if the girl next door rocked fishnets, snub-toed stilettos and a leather corset.
