Storyline

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 writes his own story. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Not Bad For This Type of Film

Diary of a Nudist (1961)

** (out of 4)

Doris Wishman directed this story of a newspaper editor who gets lost in the woods and stumbles onto a nudist camp. Back at his office he talks a female reporter into going to the camp and getting a day-by-day account of the activities. DIARY OF A NUDIST is yet another boring film from the director but I'm actually going to give her more credit than normal because she actually makes this film look like a professional one, which if you've ventured into this genre much you'll know that this isn't often the case with this type of movie. I'll also give Wishman credit for having a good eye for "talent" as the majority of the nudist range from extremely hot to incredibly cute looking. This here is always a major plus but sometimes these films don't deliver that. Obviously the main goal of this film was to show off as much nudity as possible so fans just wanting to see that are going to be in for a real treat. While this here might have been shocking or interesting in 1961, when viewed today you can't help but look at it as being tame. You also can't help but feel incredibly bored because even naked cute girls get boring after a while. There's really no story to speak of and the entire expose of the colony was just used by the producer to make you feel as if you were seeing more than just the nudity. Fans of the genre will probably want to check this out but I'd say most people are going to have a hard time making through the entire thing.
