Music Box Films acquired U.S. rights to the Mark Mori-directed Bettie Page Reveals All, the documentary about the pinup queen who shattered taboos in her time and helped usher in the sexual revolution. Music Box Films will open the pic theatrically in New York and Los Angeles November 29, and roll out from there. The film is based on interviews Mori taped with Page before her death in 2008. She went from poverty in the South to a career as a scandalous 50s pin-up model. The film also uncovers previously unknown details about Bettie’s many torrid affairs, told from both her and her lovers’ perspectives, and an abrupt retirement in 1957 from modeling. There are broken marriages, born-again Christianity, and bouts of mental illness involved, before she resurfaced in the 90s, oblivious to her cult status. Music Box president William Schopf negotiated the deal directly with the filmmaker.
