Christmas comes early for Bettie Page fans this September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cult Epics says 'The Exotic Dances of Bettie Page: 25th Anniversary Edition' will be available on Blu-ray on September 13.
Bettie Page, pin-up model of the 1950s, cult model of the 80s and 90s, gained mainstream recognition in the last few years of her life when she was immortalized in three major film productions, the first being Nico B's Bettie Page: Dark Angel (a homage to the lost bondage films.) Irving Klaw, King of the Pin-ups, directed these short films and they where the first the young Bettie performed in on celluloid. These films have now been transferred from original 8mm reels in a new High-definition transfer, including rare bonus Bettie Page Kamera Club films.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but the Blu-ray will feature a new 2K HD transfer and restoration (from original 8mm films) and supplements will include: Bettie Page Kamera Club Films (8mm films in HD); Bettie Page/Irving Klaw HD Video photo gallery; Bettie Page Uncovered: The Private Life & Photographs; Q&A Session (with Ron Brem, nephew of Bettie Page) 2016 in HD; and a silver embossed collectible Blu-ray O-ring.
