Bettie Page Reveals All at the Linda, March 11

ALBANY – Coming to The Linda on March 11 is a screening of Bettie Page Reveals All. The film is both dedicated to, and narrated by, the icon herself. The evening will also feature guest speaker Jack Theakston, son of The Bettie Pages publisher Greg Theakston (featured in the film). Prior to the screening, Theakston will be on site to present examples of his father’s original art, as well as dozens of polaroid stills of Bettie. He will also introduce the film and answer any and all questions.

Bettie Page was the most famous pinup girl of the post-World War II era, a centerfold on a million locker doors and garage walls. She was also a major influence in the fashion industry and a target of Senator Estes Kefauver’s anti-pornography investigators. During the documentary, the pinup model and cult icon recounts how her free expression overcame government witch-hunts to help launch America’s sexual revolution.

With locks as dark as midnight and a smile as bright as day, Bettie Page was much more than a beautiful pinup model, she was simply the best. A legend as much today as during her modeling days, every facet of Bettie’s life and personality captures the interest and devotion of the thousands of fans that followed her career until the day of her mysterious disappearance. Bettie’s numerous contradictions undoubtedly added to her charismatic personality. Nice and naughty, shy and daring, simple and exotic, Bettie shone with a freshness never before seen in the modeling industry. Without elaborate props, costumes, or set-dressings, Bettie produced some of the most beautiful shots to ever grace the covers of hundreds of magazines. Bettie’s smoothly tanned skin, deep blue eyes and coal-black hair with her trademark bangs, were enough inspiration to spark the imagination of even the least experienced photographers. Her “girl next door” look and innocent smile only complemented that explosive combination of features.
