It went on to win additional prizes at the Berlin, Krakow and IndieLisboa international film festivals, prior to a general release.

While Bettie Page is omnipresent in our culture, and everyone could pick her out of a lineup, she was also a famous recluse, who disappeared (almost totally) after her glory days in the 1950s. The 2005 film "The Notorious Bettie Page," starring Gretchen Mol, filled in some of the blanks (although apparently when Page saw the film at a screening, she shouted out, "Lies! It's all lies!"), but the woman herself remained staunchly hidden from view. Mark Mori's new documentary "Bettie Page Reveals All" features an extensive voiceover track of Bettie Page speaking, telling her own life story in all its sometimes joyous and sometimes harrowing detail. That voiceover track is the reason to see the film, which is mainly conventional in structure and sometimes sloppy in execution. But any time the film abandons the tired talking-head formula, with experts like Hugh Hefner and Dita Von Teese needlessly telling us why Page is influential, and goes back to Page talking, it finds its footing. She is an engaging guide, humorous and honest, cynical and wise, with that same sense of innocent joy in her own fame that translated into in photos.
Bettie's description of what happened to her during those "lost years" is fascinating and awful. She was married a bunch of times, she found Jesus, she was diagnosed schizophrenic and spent 10 years in a mental institution, a harrowing ordeal. All of this is told to us by Page in a blasé honest tone, often followed by an almost rueful chuckle. When talking about one of her marriages, she said, "The only thing we had in common was movies, hamburgers, and making love." Her sense of humor about things may cloak some of the more horrible things she relates, like the sexual assault she endured from a group of guys in a car during her early days in New York.
By 1924, the patient population had been reduced by almost half. Among the 485 patients remaining, the largest racial groups represented were 169 Hawaiian men and 101 Hawaiian women; 53 part-Hawaiian men and 43 part-Hawaiian women; 28 Japanese men and 4 Japanese women; and 24 Filipino men and one Filipino woman.
After World War II, dramatic changes in both the treatment of Hansen's disease and in social attitudes towards patients occurred with the discovery of sulfone drugs. Essentially a cure for the disease, the drugs were introduced into Hawaii in 1946. The new medications brought almost immediate reductions of symptoms and vast improvements in the quality of health and life.
Ben Weisman's recording statistics are staggering: over 60 gold records, record sales of over 75 million, 30 motion picture scores, and 57 songs recorded by Elvis Presley - all of which went gold or platinum, more than any other songwriter! To add further luster to Weisman's credits, he is one of the few songwriters to bridge the gap between the music of the '50s up through the '90s. His '50's hit 'Let Me Go Lover' earned him a place in music history as the songwriter of the first song ever to be popularized through the medium of television ('Studio One'). He received an Oscar for the Best Feature-Length Documentary, The Young Americans, his 'Concerto For Elvis' for piano was made into a ballet, and he performed on the CBS soap opera, 'The Young And The Restless' for four years. He's been equally at home writing rock and roll, country, jazz, pop or classical, and has even written marches a la Sousa.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.This is an excellent release no fan should be without it. The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.

The 26,500 fans in attendance went wild for the King of Rock 'n' Roll. The stage was set up on the empty football field, but fans wanted to be closer. Thousands bypassed security to find a place in front of the stage on the field. The show had to be stopped twice for safety concerns. Elvis' manager, Col. Tom Parker, suggested to Elvis that he tone down his show, but being a rock 'n' roll rebel, Elvis didn't listen to him. He did shorten the set, though, and - for safety reasons - he fooled the audience. He gave his gold jacket to a crew member to wear while getting into a car, so fans would think it was Elvis leaving. The fans followed the man in the gold jacket, and Elvis was allowed to calmly leave the stadium unharmed.
The King of Rock and Roll's next performance in the Nutmeg state came on July 28, 1976, at the Civic Center in Hartford. All 12,314 tickets sold out within six hours, with some people reselling the $12.50 tickets for $100 according to fan site elvisconcerts.com.

I decided to finally set aside a few months to study Paul, see if I could unravel what his life as an artist was about, and learn a few things of my own. I had no idea each road I turned down would lead to more infamous characters sharing their unbridled zeal for the man as a world-class musician, let alone the wild and rowdy stories not fit for this magazine. But maybe someday they too will come out in a lengthier body of work. The only way to really dig in and uncover it all (not possible) was to actually take some major drives and meet up with people, and so it went.
Another serious concern regarded the new corruption system, which rendered cities far away from the capital almost completely useless. Many players who were used to dominating the game by creating massive empires called the corruption penalties too harsh. The game has been frequently called "Corruption III" in many forums, including Apolyton.com, a major fan site. Others saw this aspect as a good way to increase the game's difficulty, to make the game both more challenging, and more realistic for players with far-flung empires.
However Edge of Reality isan odd song in Elvis' extensive canon, a kind of Orbison-on-acidthing with big orchestral backing, and it was written by Presley'salmost in-house team of Bernie Baum, Florence Kaye and HarveyZimmerman (aka Bill Giant) who contributed to most of Presley'sHollywood musicals.
We recently talked to Porter over Zoom about Chapter 1, why now is right for his first album in almost 50 years, being sampled in hundreds of songs and how the creative spirit he had in the early days of Stax has never left him.
That was a song that I just originally wrote by myself. Isaac [Hayes] was busy, and I just went into the studio and just wrote the song and produced it as well. And it was found. And there were several pieces of material that were done that way. But what I found fascinating was how, interestingly, the people who would go into the catalog of mine would find ways to make it their own, but also not lose the significance of why they chose the material to sample, to begin with. So it was really, really a touching thing for me. And then to have it years, years later take on this life of its own is also exciting for me. About 500 samples plus is an exciting feeling.
