The Claire Sinclair Show (DVD Review) - Cult Epics

Directed By: Nico B.
Starring: Claire Sinclair, Bunny Yeager
Color/75 Minutes/Not Rated
Region FREE
Release Date: January 13, 2015

The Show
CLAIRE SINCLAIR started modeling as a teenager and quickly found a niche in the pin-up style that she loved. Claire was Miss October 2010 for Playboy magazine and at just 19 years old she was named Playmate of the Year for 2011. She has appeared on various Playboy inspired reality TV shows, had a successful run with the Crazy Horse Paris cabaret show and has become the face of the Bettie Page Clothing company.

The CLAIRE SINCLAIR SHOW features a pair of episodes, the first where Claire interviews herself discussing her history and life up to now and her plans for the future which are extensive. The second episode is a sit down interview and a photo shoot with famed photography Bunny Yeager who is best known for her work with Bettie Page. This would be Yeager's last on camera interview and photo shoot before her death in May of 2014. The first episode is a good way to get to know Claire who is an instantly likeable young woman on top her incredible looks. The second episode is definitely the more interesting of the two episodes as there is some historical value and a good bit of footage from the nude photo shoot. 

The Audio & Video
Cult Epics releases this collection of two episodes of the CLAIRE SINCLAIR SHOW to DVD with a nice looking 1.33:1 full frame transfer. Colors are strong and vibrant while the digital photography is crisp and clear. There's nothing really to complain about. The 2.0 Dolby Digital audio in the first segment is fine but the sitdown with Bunny Yeager is a bit on the quiet and thin side so you may need to use your remote control accordingly. Otherwise the audio is free of any distractions or damage.

The Extras
-Original Super 8mm Films of Claire and Bunny shot by Nico B.
-The Erotica Channel Introductions by Claire

The Bottom Line
Big fans of pin-up models and culture will be interested but if you don't fall in to that category you're not missing out on anything.
