Music Box Films has just debuted the trailer for director Mark Mori’s new documentary, Bettie Page Reveals All. Check it out in the player below.
In Moris documentary, the real Bettie Page emerges from the veil of myth and rumor via interviews Mori taped a decade prior to her death in 2008. With earthy, razor sharp wit, Bettie tells her life story — from humble beginnings as one of six children born to an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to her career as a scandalous 50s pin-up model. The film also uncovers previously unknown details about Betties many torrid affairs, told from both her and her lovers perspectives. We follow her story through her sudden retirement at the peak of her modeling career in 1957, and discover a strange tale of decades of broken marriages, born-again Christianity, and bouts of mental illness, before ultimately resurfacing in the public eye in the early 90s, unaware of her cult status.
Bettie Page Reveals All will be released in New York on November 22.
