Portrait of an American innocent. In 1955, Bettie Page (1923-2008 ) waits to testify before a Senate subcommittee investigating the effects of pornographic material on American adolescents and juveniles. In flashbacks, we see her childhood in Tennessee, a brief marriage, a gang rape, and her going to New York City in 1949. There she takes acting lessons, models for photos, and acts in short films for adults, earning the nickname, “The Pin-Up Queen of the Universe.” We see her relationship with merchants Irving and Paula Klaw, photographers John Willie and Bunny Yeager, boyfriends, and the public. Through it all, she is wholesome, sporting, and forthright – Eve before the fall.

Film Review

This is a watchable biopic but it feels a bit incomplete. The film traces the story of Betty Page, a hugely successful fifties pin-up model who became one of America's earliest sex symbols. Gretchen Mol is fine in the title role and portrays Betty as a simple-minded person who doesn't believe there's any harm in what she's doing. She has a great body and flaunts it well. The film shows a Senate investigation on prurient material, but this part isn't well depicted. The final stages of her life feel incomplete, and perhaps this film would have worked better as a TV series.Overall 6/10

Bettie Page was going to be a teacher but she soon became caught up in the world of modeling. This wasn't average everyday modeling, this was 'tie me up and spank me' modeling. The fun type and Bettie thought that it was fun and I suppose that she was naive in a way. Then there was that Senate investigation where she sat there for hours on end and didn't even get a chance to have her voice heard. She did help pave the way for the sexual revolution along with Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. Bettie Page was an icon to a lot of sexually repressed men in those days. This movie does a good job depicting her life. Gretchen Moll looks almost exactly like what Bettie Page looked like back then. She thought that the pictures were all just fun so I'll just say that the movie was fun to watch.

What a dull movie! It's completely linear, boring, and confused. The switching between black- and-white and color is gimmicky, and not used consistently. The acting is fine, but the dialog is OHHHHH so dull.The direction and editing are pedestrian at best.Who cooked up this sad little vignette?Gretchen Moll has a terrific body, truly wonderful, but you can get that kind of excitement on any practically any TV channel these days (at least in the UK).What a sad, sad life poor Bettie seems to have had.
