"Bettie Page Revealed" in Boca Raton Florida - CinemaDave

Dec. 3rd, 2013 10:01 am "Bettie Page Revealed" in Boca Raton Florida

For local interest, don't miss **Betty Page Revealed,** a documentary featuring a little Boca Raton history south of Glades Road.  We learn that Bettie Page attended "BibleTown" (now known as Boca Raton Community Church) and she shot her famous jungle photos a few blocks south in the Africa-USA park (now a housing development).  Narrated by the titled subject, **Bettie Page Revealed** is a documentary of contrasts. 
Throughout the movie, we see the glamour of Bettie Page, in various stages of dress and undress.  Yet through the dead pan narration, we learn about Bettie's battles with abuse, censorship and her own mental illness.  Not seen since her spicy photographs from the 1950s, Bettie narration is hauntingly off camera.  While the woman embraces her sexual legacy, her deep voice southern drawl presents a warning to naïve young people everywhere
