Has there ever been a pin-up girl quite like Betty Page? MMMM Betty Page....
From the channel 4 website:
Bettie Page became a photo model sensation in 1950s New York and a worldwide icon. Her legendary fetish poses even made her the target of a senate investigation into pornography and transformed her into an erotic icon who continues to enthrall fans to this day. The Notorious Bettie Page is a tender, witty and poignant exploration of the moral righteousness of 1950s America and the pin up sensation that shocked the nation. In a stylistic tour-de-force, Harron recreates the look and feel of the films of Bettie’s 1950 heyday, variously evoking the era’s gritty black and white noir, lush Technicolor melodramas, even its Super 8 home movies.
Starring Gretchen Mol The Notorious Bettie Page, depicts Bettie’s often accidental journey to celebrity, and captures a vanishing but not entirely unfamiliar America, where sex is a secret obsession that can incite furore at the highest levels of the government. We step into the past to follow the life and career of Bettie Page, a quiet good natured southern beauty who found her calling on front of the camera and radiated vitality and joy in every single pose and every costume. Through her fetish tableaux may now appear more quaint than shocking, The Notorious Bettie Page remains a wonder to behold. http://www.channel4.com/film/chatvotewin/competitions/N/notorious-bettie-page-dvd-competition.html
