TIFF Day 7: The Notorious Bettie Page

September 15, 2005 by recapped

The Notorious Bettie PageGretchen Mol (who was at the screening) plays Bettie Page in The Notorious Bettie Page. The majority of this biopic is shown in black & white. Gretchen only has a few nude scenes but they are all pretty long with good views.

The first nude scene is about a half hour into the movie and is shown in black & white. Gretchen is posing for a photographer outdoors. The photographer mentions to Gretchen that they will have to stop soon because of lighting issues. Gretchen, not wanting to stop, decides to take off her top since according to her its only a little piece of fabric. The photographer then asks Gretchen to remove her bottoms too since it too is only a little piece of fabric. Gretchen agrees and we see her posing fully naked. The photographer tells Gretchen that he could get in trouble for taking pics of her huge bush so Gretchen turns slightly to the side and we see more views of her ass.

About 20 minutes later, Gretchen visits Miami to shoot with Bunny Yeager. We see a colourful montage of Gretchen naked posing for nudist magazines. There may also be brief glimpses of bush as we see Gretchen doing outdoor activities like fishing and swimming.

An hour into the movie, we see Gretchen posing with a Santa hat on for Playboy. She is nude but we only see her breasts. This scene was also shown in colour.

Also screening on Day 7 was April Snow. As expected, Son Ye-jin did not get naked during the much talked about love scene. You can see most of her breasts though — just no nipples. Ye-jin is also shown wearing a bra in a couple of other scenes.
