Newspaper editor Arthur Sherwood is on a hunting trip when he accidentally stumbles upon a nudist camp in the woods. He is very much shocked by this and decides to send reporter Stacy Taylor to the camp so she can write an expose on the camp and have it shut down. However, much to her surprise, Stacy finds that she enjoys the nudist lifestyle and writes some very positive articles on her experiences, which doesn't sit well with Arthur. Arthur then decides to join the camp himself and write his own story. Written by Brian Washington <>

Ye Olde Nudie!
22 November 2005 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Diary Of A Nudist was the kind of movie that was extremely controversial and daring 45 years ago. This was the kind of movie that teenagers with fake I.D.'s would go out to see at the drive-ins. For years, mainstream cinema never offered up any skin and seeing the kinds of nudie-cutie quickies from Russ Meyer, Herschell Gordon Lewis, and Doris Wishman certainly were a shock to the system. Today, films like this are considered to be curiosity pieces. There is tons of nudity but very little else. No titillation, no sexual situations, and nothing explicit. Just a group of healthy, beautiful people doing everyday things in the buff.

Still, the movie is a lot of fun to watch; even though there seems to be so much tedium and is slow moving. The scenery is beautiful and you feel you are seeing what Heaven would look like in 1961. There are some fine looking women who always seem to be carrying around hats, towels, and magazines over the more "controversial" private parts. Also, Davee Decker is quite lovely; even though her voice is dubbed.

If you long to see what an "adult movie" was like in the early days and can accept the fact that it is only nudity and nothing more then you will have some fun with this one. It airs occasionally on Drive-In Classics.
