2.0 out of 5 stars A Good Try But...., 11 April 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bettie Page: Dark Angel [DVD] (DVD)
From the offset I just knew that this was going to be a "fan movie" of sorts and to be honest, biopic's made on whatever budget seem to leave a rather tongue in cheek appeal. Jason Scott Lee did a fair attempt at Bruce Lee albeit way too chunky and looking nothing like him, Kurt Russell as Elvis and seeing as we're talking about Bettie Page, Gretchen Mol as the lady herself in "The Notorious Bettie Page"

The aforementioned tributed stars each had a very charismatic and unique persona, very hard for any actor to pull off and to attempt a cult icon such as Bettie Page then some things should be left well alone.

Paige Richards "does a Bettie" she pouts, she poses and preens which you can't help but think that she's saying "Hey look at me, I'm doing Bettie Page" which to be honest together with the ham acting it's all very low budget B movie candyfloss and I for one didn't make it to the end of the film due to the pain caused by my toes curling too many times.

My advice if you're a Bettie Page fan?....save your money on this one and go buy "Teaserama" and see the real Bettie Page

1.0 out of 5 stars 1 star is 1 too many!, 2 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Bettie Page: Dark Angel [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this DVD having heard that it was an accurate documentary piece, detailing Bettie's time with Irving Claw and including some re-inactments of the short fetish movies she filmed with Klaw. What I found was a grotesque portrayal of my idol with low production values and a script with such poor dialogue that it would have befit only a porn movie.

Please...if as a Bettie Page fan you were considering buying this DVD, reconsider! Infact, think twice about any Bettie DVD you are looking to buy! I am yet to find an actress that can do Bettie justice. You're better off sticking to Irving Claw's 'Teaserama' and 'Variatease' where you can actually see the beautiful Bettie herself in her heyday.

And did I keep this DVD? No. I took great pleasure in taking a hammer to it, so adament i was that it would not nestle in my otherwise respectable DVD collection.

AVOID!
