Sunburn is good for you (?)
13 November 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Good depiction of nudism as wholesome. Beautiful bodies.

Stilted dialogue and silly fiction cover-story of a reporter sent to investigate. Interspersed crackpot comments on nudism as a cure-all are a detriment or added humor, depending on your tastes. What about skin cancer? At times they wear shoes and socks which gives a dorky look. Other times they scamper around completely bare, getting covered with dust - and no worries about thorns, snakes, or sunburn! Well worth watching, but not as good as "Unashamed (1938)"
