Nudism is Natural!
8 July 2002 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

"Daughter Of The Sun" is about a school board member who anonymously receives a nudist magazine in the mail. There on page 15 is one of the female teachers at his school, Miss Pamela Walker. He calls an emergency meeting of the school board to decide whether she should be fired.

This is a Herchell Gordon Lewis movie so don't expect the subject matter to be treated too seriously. A young male board member decides that he wants to learn a little bit more about the nudist lifestyle before he decides on whether to vote in favor of firing Miss Walker. He accompanies her to the Sunshine Nudist Camp. There, he sees that nudists are normal people who just happen to enjoy everyday activities without their clothes on. Lots (and lots) of shots of swimming, sunbathing and volleyball ensue. 2/10
