DisappointingBy a customer from Leeds , 27 Oct 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Disappointingly this fails to even approach the quality of 'The Notorious Bettie Page' movie. The lead actress (Paige Richards) simply lacks even a small measure of the vital charm required to represent Ms Page. The re-enactments are rather dull; which surely is, embarassingly, the absolute antithesis of the producers intent.

Cheap bad actingBy Sheeba_Flamingo (4 reviews) , 20 Mar 2013Its very disappointing after being an avid fan of 'The notorious Bettie Page' which is on a whole different leve, dont waste you time on this film and go straight for the Nortorious bettie Page wth Gretchen Mol!!
Excrutiatingly PAINFUL!By Serafis (1 review) , 29 Jun 2011I'm not joking this damn film is like an amatuer media studies film, its only redeeming quality is that it has the work of bettie in it... but for christ sake, couldn't they have thought of a coherent story....
it's a mismash of whatever they could think of with terrible cuts and edits, and Dear lord it angers me, why do people make this crap
WoefulBy junespoon (1 review) from UK , 10 Feb 2010I should have listened to the other reviewers, but was sure that you couldn't go that far wrong given the subject....well, i was wrong.
I also fast-forwarded through 90% of the film (and certainly through the reproductions of the Betty Page short films which were so boring that i just couldn't stand it)
The acting was soo poor that i was cringing behind a cushion...really, without doubt the worst film that i have EVER seen.
EnigmaBy FrankIV (534 reviews) from Cirencester, England , 25 Jan 2010The most interesting thing about Bettie Page is what it was in her that made this all-American, small-town, reasonably pretty, religiously inclined young woman able to make a name for herself in bondage-sadism films, even if at the softer end of the market, and particularly given the cultural and moral climate of the times. Neither this film nor the superior 'Notorious Bettie Page' has any answer. There's no suggestion that she got any sexual pleasure out of what she was doing, nor even that she was really aware of what she was doing - she seems to have been simply an aspiring but very bad actress grateful to be earning more money than she could in a typing pool while waiting for her break to come. This version of her life is well enough made, and the focal point is the reproduction - I presume accurate: there wouldn't be much point otherwise - of those of her films that survive, shot in authentic black and white, but with sharper prints.
