From director Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol, American Psycho) comes The Notorious Bettie Page, a provocative exploration of sexuality, religion and pop culture in the fascinating world of the famous pin-up girl, Bettie Page. Released on DVD courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment on the 19th March 2007, The Notorious Bettie Page features a justifiably acclaimed performance from Gretchen Mol and star performances from Lili Taylor (Factotum), Jared Harris (I Shot Andy Warhol) and David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck ).

Bettie Page became a photo model sensation in 1950s New York and a worldwide icon. Her legendary fetish poses even made her the target of a senate investigation into pornography and transformed her into an erotic icon who continues to enthrall fans to this day.

The Notorious Bettie Page is a tender, witty and poignant exploration of the moral righteousness of 1950s America and the pin up sensation that shocked the nation. In a stylistic tour-de-force, Harron recreates the look and feel of the films of Bettie's 1950 heyday, variously evoking the era's gritty black and white noir, lush Technicolor melodramas, even its Super 8 home movies.

Depicting Bettie's often accidental journey to celebrity, The Notorious Bettie Page captures a vanishing but not entirely unfamiliar America, where sex is a secret obsession that can incite furore at the highest levels of the government. We step into the past to follow the life and career of Bettie Page, a quiet good natured southern beauty who found her calling on front of the camera and radiated vitality and joy in every single pose and every costume. Through her fetish tableaux may now appear more quaint than shocking, Bettie Page remains a wonder to behold.
