Bettie Page Reveals All

Synopsis: With a natural photogenic poise and a vivaciously innocent risqué flair, there never was a pinup model like Bettie Page. Through Page's own words and interviews with her closest associates, we explore her extraordinary life growing up in a troubled childhood until she found a wild career as the Queen of the Pin-up Girls. In doing so, Page would challenge the paranoid sexual repression of the 1950s with uncommon grace until she walked away at the peak of her career. We also follow her quiet troubled later years struggling with unhappy marriages and mental illness that threaten to consume her even as she found a higher faith. Despite those challenges, Page's popularity would rise again in a more accepting time to become a celebrated icon of fearless sexuality and beauty.

and were married in five minutes.

And when I got on the bus

to go back with him,

I said to myself,

"What have I done?"

Well, we were in San

Francisco, 1944.

And this fella, he took

a lot of pictures of me

and sent some of them

down to 20th Century Fox.

I had a screen test

with John Russell

who later played the

lawman on a TV series.

But that test was awful.

They tried to make me up

to look like Joan Crawford.

Didn't even look like me.

While I was at the studio,

this big car pulled up beside me...

and a big fat guy,

very ugly looking fella,

wanted me to go to dinner with him.

I told him no.

And he said, "You'll be sorry."

Well, he was at the

head of the table

when I went to learn

the results of the screen test.

That test was awful.

I was so disappointed and unhappy

over the failure of

the screen test,

when I got back to San Francisco,

I started eating.

Within two months, I ballooned

way up to 162 pounds.

Well, my sister came to visit me,

Goldie, from Nashville.

She said that the landlord,

he had cussed her out

and accused her of causing

the sink in the bathroom

to fall off the wall.

I went to the door, and

boy, he flew in on me,

beating me in the face with

his fist, just a mad man.

And Goldie grabbed the milk bottle and

cracked him over the head with it.

And he started bleeding

down the front of his head,

and he thought he was

dying, and we did too.

Because Goldie was underage,

under 21, I'm the one

who had to testify,

even though I'm not the one

who hit him over the head.

But they gave me a 30-day suspended

sentence and I had to pay 10 dollars,

and it was in the paper,

a great big picture of me

and a big headline,

"Tenant Bashes Landlord".

Well, Billy came back

from fighting overseas.

He had battle fatigue,
