HASH(0x94a37648) étoiles sur 5 Clunky telling of a riveting tale 2 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Sorry to tell this to customer reviewers who prefer to ignore the sadder facts of Bettie's life, but she really did disappear from public view as a result of a slide into madness and violence. Foster's book is the first discussion of the FACTS of Page's life, rather than of the image and the fantasy. Admittedly, he's not an elegant writer, but that's more than compensated for by his skills as a researcher. His book is the result of a clear-eyed examination of the life of a woman he clearly likes and for whom he clearly has a great deal of sympathy. Bettie comes across as mostly sympathetic -- even as she falls into darkness. If the truth matters more to you than the image, read this book.

HASH(0x93c96e64) étoiles sur 5 Defending Foster's bombshell 23 décembre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Foster's book is, in the truest sense of the term, a bombshell. An easy read and a tough book to put down, except to come up for another gasp before you dive back down again, fans of la Page may want to curse Foster for bursting their bubble...or expanding the myth of the Queen of Curves. I consumed it in an evening along with a massive bowl of popcorn and a lot of tea; the 1972 mugshot alone is worth the cover price of $22, but Amazoned at $15, I got a lot of "wows" for the price of a pizza. Onward: Exploited, cheated, lied to and deceived, Bettie Page emerges not so much as an icon as much as a victim...and Foster is the messenger being shot at because he bears the news: the image of Page as we know it is far more complex than we knew. Page was not, as her earlier book paints, a good girl from a happy family doing naughty photos and disappearing discreetly. Instead, Foster's book shows her as an almost perennial victim from the sexually abused child to the trusting client of one bad promoter or lawyer after another. While Playboy's article seemingly comes to her defense, Foster points out that her issue of Playboy is the second most-requested issue in the magazine's history...and Page got all of $20 for it. When an attorney sued an unauthorized producer of Page materials without her consent, the judge found in favor of the producers and she was left with $85,000 in legal fees; another in a long string of slaps from another low-life. Ironically, in a January 1998 Playboy article, Page calls Foster "a devil" when he may be one of the few straight-forward men she's encountered in her life. One might point to countless cases of abuse victims attacking the people who've come to help them, and that may be the case here. Foster dug deep to produce a newsworthy, terrific read; he did not produce one of the dozens of Bettie Page videos, recordings, books, cigarette lighters or junk that gets listed in he book's epilogue, nor does he throw a single criticism of the numerous web sites devoted to Bettie. Foster's book is definitive investigative writing. Now the uncomfortable question that Page followers will have to face is whether our lust for Bettie is fandom or a further contribution to her continued victimization.

HASH(0x93c96cd8) étoiles sur 5 The Bettie I never heard about 12 avril 2002
Par Sabrina Sorens - Publié sur
Format: Broché
My all time favorite book on Bettie is "The Life Of a Pin-Up Legend". She spoke with the authors of that book and gave her blessing. That book has a "happy ending", Bettie finding solace in bible study and religion. This book, "The Truth About the Queen of Pin-Ups", tells a very different side of Bettie's life story, one that I'd never heard about before. It surprised me! I'm not surprised Bettie wouldn't help with this book. It focuses on years she wants to forget. It's sad to hear about her problems with mental illness. I found it interesting mainly because the author spoke to a woman who actually lived with Bettie for a time, and the pictures were interesting. This book doesn't change my opinion of Bettie Page, she is still my favorite icon. I don't mind if the Goddess is all too human. Still love her!

HASH(0x93c9a990) étoiles sur 5 A primer of Bette 20 mars 2001
Par John A. Gregorio - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It's all in the book. All the dark and sad moments of Ms. Page's life. I admit a morbid streak which prompted me to read this book, but afterwords there was a sense of why did I need to know this much about her life. Did I enjoy her work more because of this knowledge? No. You may enjoy this book, more than I, if the sensational is your cup of tea. I took one star off because it is written in a 6-8th grade level English and it was annoying. Put your monies down and takes your chances!

HASH(0x93c3cd2c) étoiles sur 5 Bettie Page Uncovered 14 novembre 2005
Par m.reynolds - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A very sad tale of a woman broken by her fame and tortured by her problems. Wonderful pictures of Bettie in her prime and overall a very good book. I will agree that it is written in a tabloid style -it's not war and peace but it is a good read about an american icon.
