First of all the "Dark Angel" film is just boring -- how many stupid bondage videos do we have to watch. We get your point -- Bettie did bondage videos......
Nico B has the arrogance to say this a CULT FILM? Cult films are not made, they happen vis a vis the public's perspective of a film.
Nico B needs to do his research -- instead of wasting time on chasing down composers for that boring and redundent soundtrack, he needs to get his facts straight.
The acting is really bad -- I am a native Tennesseean and I can tell you that nobody in Tennessee has the accent of Paige Richards. Ditto the "narrator" who is not Paige Richards. They all sound like they are from the deep south and very phony. But the voice of Estes Kefauver (who was born and bred in Madisonville, Tennessee), with some sort of Teutonic accent was just over the top!
I can't believe anyone would pay to see this in a theatre. I can't believe I paid to buy this junk.
The Bunny Yeager stuff of Paige Richards is OK Let's see though, did Bettie Page have a Brazlian Wax, Pierced Ears, or Implants? I think not.
Paige Richards does look remarkably like Bettie Page in the face and figure (except for those implants).
But after a few scenes, that portion of the DVD was so boring I did not even finish it. Paige Richards is a really pretty woman, but she tries to hard when posing for Bunny -- some of those faces she makes tend to make her look as though she is passing some type of fetid gas into the air!Read more ›
If you are like me and buy anything Bettie, buy and enjoy, but if you are looking for a great bio film on Bettie..this ain't it.
It is not a film in the traditional sense of the word, but a well-worked homage to Bettie Page and the work of Irving Klaw in general, and on these terms, it works well.
Yes, the "acting" is not great, but Paige Richards does a decent job as Bettie, considering she not a professional actor, but at least she is authentic, as Richards is a bondage / fetish model by trade and looks a lot like Bettie of the time.
The real plus points are the black and white recreations of the original Irving Klaw bondage / domination / catfight scenes.
In fact, I would challenge any mainstream director to recreate these famous scenes any better than is presented here. Well done Nico!!
Overall, a good homage to Bettie Page, shot on digital video so it looks great, and definately a worthy project.
PS : Emily Marilyn is also HOT!!

Right off the bat I don't understand the reviewers on Amazon rating this 2 disc combo & Paige's performance as poor. I don't buy that at all. In fact her performance is excellent. Read morePublished on August 23, 2010 by Mike from Canada
This is simply a refilming of the old 1950's Betty Page fetish loops - in black and white. No nudity. Why not just watch the originals? Read morePublished on March 8, 2010 by steamduck43
To be succinct... Blech. This is not a film; it doesn't even have the quality necessary to qualify as sexploitation or a Cult Classic. This is one step above a home movie. Read morePublished on January 4, 2008 by Geoff
This is a complete rip off for any fan of Bettie photos or Bettie history. Everything about this DVD is either bad or fake. Don't waste your time or money.Published on July 4, 2006 by ld
