There is a new Bettie Page Documentary in the works and yours truly was interviewed at the Chicago Comic-con. They haven't posted the interview footage yet, but when they do I will post about it tout de suite.
Here's a quick synopsis on the film as taken from the website:
In a docu-comedy romp through 1950's American pop-culture, the reclusive "Dark Angel," Bettie Page, chronicles the behind-the-scenes story of her rise as a cult icon and for the first time fully reveals the story of her mysterious appearance at the height of her career in 1957. Unseen for more than 50 years and known to the public only by her iconic photographs, an unparalleled mystique has built up around Bettie Page. Here. she reveals the real woman behind the iconic image. Pin-up photographers Bunny Yeager and Paula Klaw, as well as camera club/3-D photographer, Art Amsie, and stripper, Tempest Storm, provide personal stories and insight into the life and career of Bettie Page. Some of Bettie's close friends in her later years give insight into Bettie, the person behind the iconic image – Steve Brewster, founder of Bettie Scouts of America, Carlo Shahumian, neighbor and friend during the last eight years of her life and Devin Devasquez, former Playmate and a confidant to Bettie.
This could be pretty cool kids! Keep an eye out for it.
