I wanted to wrap up the Directed by Women global viewing party posts with a series that relate to fans of Pin Up! The Movie.

I’ve been wading through this world since I’ve begun working on the film.

And many of the pin up-related documentaries are directed by men, from the vintage films like Pin Up Girl (starring Betty Grable, directed by Bruce Humberstone) to contemporary documentaries like Bettie Page Reveals All (directed by Mark Mori).

BUT…..

There is one film that came out a few years back that centers on pin up culture. The Notorious Bettie Page. Mary Harron’s 2005 feature stars Gretchen Moll as the queen of the pin ups.

Certainly worth a view and it’s directed by a woman! You can always save the others for next month…
