1.0 out of 5 stars Bad recreations May 14, 2005
By D. Ray
Format:DVD
This DVD is nothing but bad acting and bad recreations of Bettie Pages black and white films. The narrator Bettie has a deep southern accent but when Paige Richards talks the accent is gone. And on top of it all it's not even historically accurate. Stay away from this one if you are a Bettie Page Fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars BORING TO THE MAX! NICO B REEKS! April 8, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD contains both the original "Dark Angel" Cult Film and a "How to Pose Nude" with Bunny Yeager (who we never see - just Paige Richards). I was so excited to receive this DVD and was very let down.

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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Subject..poorly done November 2, 2004
Format:DVD
I was excited when I heard about this film..I am a big Bettie fan. As a rule I buy anything Bettie but had I seen this film before I bought it..I would not have. The acting is stilted and really like a bad high school play, and the lead actress Paige Richards reminds me at times of Julia Sweeney. (IT's PAT!) ha ha

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY IMPORTANT REVIEW!! A MUST READ!! August 25, 2009
Format:DVD
Wow, what a terrible movie. I am pretty sure that I have seen better high school performances!? The movie was pointless, had some of the worst acting I've seen and was casted terribly. I had bought this movie to add to my ever growing Bettie collection, but had I seen it first, I never would have bought it! I never would have rented it, heck I am not even sure someone could have convinced me to take a copy for free!? Anyone who has seen Bettie's short films knows that she wasn't the best actress. So, picture her films but ten times worse because someone even less experienced is trying to imitate her!!?? That's what this movie is like. One big train wreck!! I don't usually do this, (even with bad movies)but I had to fast forward through most of it cause it was so boring, this is pretty bad seeing that I am truly a huge fan of Bettie and usually go crazy for any new material!? If someone who knew nothing about Bettie saw this, they would come away thinking she was just some dumb slut!? Which (as any real Bettie fan would know) is the furthest from the truth about her? She was extremely intelligent and during the time she was a model, was the least sexually active period in her life (she says because she wasn't married)!? Also, not to be mean, but Paige Richards is no Bettie! Sure she may be skinny with dark hair and Bettie's bangs, but Bettie paid great attention to her look and would work out 5 days a week when she was a full time model. Paige (aside from being a terrible actress) although skinny, I don't feel was "fit" to play the role at all. Bunny Yeager, was a pretty, thin little red head with fair skin. I had to laugh when I saw the lady they chose to play her. She had dark skin, was clearly wearing a red wig (not even the right red) and looked completely different!! Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Life and times of a legend June 3, 2012
By Kung Fu
Format:Blu-ray
Bettie Page was the number one pin up model in the 1950's. Bettie Page: Dark Angel tells the story of the last three years of her brief career as a pin up model before she disappeared from the spotlight.

The bulk of the movie is told through a series of reenactments of some of Bettie Pages most famous bondage scenes. The dialog and story is not that fleshed out. Despite this minor flaw the films succeeds overall because of director Nico B.'s eye for detail in when recreating Page's Bondage segments. These segments are stylishly photographed in black and white. Nico B.'s direction is solid through out and it is obvious in every frame that this project was a labor of love.

The acting in this film is average at best with the exception of Paige Richards who plays the lead role Bettie Page. Paige Richards is a dead ringer for Bettie Page and she does an admirable job capturing the essence of Bettie Page. It is amazing just how much Nico B. is able to recreate with the limited budget he had at his disposal. Bettie Page: Dark Angel is a wonderful tribute to one of America's most icon pin up models whose popularity has not waned through the years

Bettie Page: Dark Angel comes on a 25 GB single layer BluRay. The film is presented in a 1080 progressive anamorphic widescreen. Though the transfer for the DVD was very good for the time when it was released. This new Hi Def transfer improves upon that aforementioned transfer in every way. It should be noted that the grain looks more pronounced in some scenes then in others and this is most likely due to the film's source materials. In all this is a strong transfer that does a very good job with the limitations of the source materials.

This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital Stereo mix in English.

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 more
