Trivia

When the film played in Tampa, Florida, for an adults only audience, a married couple was turned away because the wife was only twenty years old. The woman, it turned out, had appeared in the film, but was considered too young to see herself nude on screen. See more »

Good effort, but needs more conflict
18 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sure for its time it was very innovative, but no one took this subject matter seriously in the '50's. Take for instance the scene where Jamie O'Hara remarks how "delightful" it feels to watch her little daughter playing nude with other children, but balks when she sees other adults.

Nowadays the situation is reversed. With the proliferation of Girls Gone Wild, Hedonism and HBO & Playboy documentaries, mainstream audiences now see nudism as an adult hobby, and parents who involve their children are facing criminal investigations.

I expected more of the writer to make use of R.G. Armstrong. He's a very nice man. Met him at Dupar's four years ago. But such a talented actor who really should have been given more to do as the uptight old father figure.
