Bell Is Certainly the Main Attraction

Bell, Bare and Beautiful (1963)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Rick Bradshaw (William Kerwin) is becoming haunted by a woman he keeps dreaming about. He knows nothing about her but he tries to track her down through a nudist colony and before long he finds her. It turns out that Gina (Virginia Bell) is her name and Rick will stop at nothing to get her.

Herschell Gordon Lewis started his career making these type of nudie cuties and it's easy to see why he will always be best remembered for his gore picture. You know, the nudie cutie is one of the hardest genres to watch for a number of reasons but the biggest today is the fact that they simply don't have too much going for them outside of the nudity. In 1963 it wasn't as easy to see a naked lady so movies like this were made so that men could get a cheap thrill.

The nudity is here but there's really not much of a story or any other sort of entertainment. It's really too bad that there weren't a bit more entertainment thrown into these things. This could have come from some sort of plot or perhaps just a few laughs scattered throughout. The main reason to watch this is because of Bell and her 48-24-36 measurements. Yes, her breasts are that large and they are the main reason people will want to check this film out.
