Synopsis
Bettie Page was one of America's most potent sex symbols in the '50s. Page was a leading model who was a frequent presence on magazine covers, cheesecake calendars, and pinup shots; she was also one of Playboy magazine's early Playmates. But Page also enjoyed a loyal following for the short erotic films she made with photographer Irving Klaw, which dealt with the then-taboo subject matter of bondage, sado-masochism, and lesbianism. While somewhat tame by today's standards, Klaw's films were powerful images in their day, and when they came to the attention of a federal commission investigating pornography, Klaw was out of business, and Page, who had unsuccessfully tried to make her way into mainstream movies, went underground, seeming to vanish from the world of modeling. Bettie Page: Dark Angel is a partially fictionalized screen biography of the famous sex symbol, which focuses on her rise to fame, her work with Klaw (including re-creations of some of her better-known films), and her retreat from the spotlight. Model Paige Richards stars as Bettie Page while one Dukey Flyswatter appears as Irving Klaw. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

    ???? Extra disc just for the hell of it by speakreflection November 1, 2006 - 8:19 AM PST

    I couldn't see one reason for this disc.
    It contains an interview with the very bland Paige Richards who portrays Bettie in the movie.
    What a waste of a DVD.

    Horrible even for B-Movies by speakreflection November 1, 2006 - 8:18 AM PST

    When I first saw the listing for this. I was wondering if this was a more indie version than the one with Gretchen Mol.
    I was wrong.
    This was a very horrible D-Movie that had a list of things wrong with it. Bad acting. Bad dialogue. Bad camera movement. Horrible music. Bad editing.
    The actress (using that term loosely of course)that portrayed Bettie was horrible also. I guess cause she had black hair she was given the lead. It reminds me of the horrible casting of Jennifer Love Hewitt as Audrey Hepburn.
    Horrible movie. Seriously avoid at all costs.

    Consider this a warning. When this movie showed at the SF Indie Fest two years ago, the audience left in droves. The organizer apologized to the audience before the 2nd showing.

    Some of the worst acting ever witnessed, and any moments that would have made an interesting story were removed from the script.

    Bettie Page fans, if you are curious watch through the 1st recreation of the silent stag film, then skip to the last 5 minutes for some truly "so bad it's good" moments.
