Tony Tedeschi is the jewel thief who takes refuge in Planet Earth nudist camp, though typical sloppiness (no script is credited) has camp caretaker Mark Davis (misspelled Marc in credits) calling in Planet People instead.
He's a voyeur at the camp ogling the lovely women who make love outdoors, until Vince Vouyer (misspelled typically Voyeur in the credits) shows up as an obvious cop hunting for the thief. What transpires is cute sex comedy with hot sex scenes shot in a lovely tropical forest setting.
The contrast with 21st Century porn couldn't be more obvious. Even as this feature was being made in 1995, the dreaded Max Hardcore-generated gonzo revolution was well underway taking Adult Cinema on a fast track to the gutter. Audience tastes, which had reached a high point of sophistication by the early 1980s through the work of talents like Gerard Damiano and Radley Metzger have rapidly nosedived to the point where all-sex content is prized (and constantly awarded by the corrupt industry trade bodies like AVN) while eroticism, "Couples" films and narrative cinema is ridiculed. I belong to the holdouts who treasure the finest in Adult, and applaud the many (though dwindling in market share towards nothingness) fine features produced since the '60s, and this Zen work is one of them.
Madelyn Knight, who appears only in a lesbian scene with Tami Ann and lots of sloppy watermelon on their private parts, is the marketing hook for the Caballero release, billed as "Introducing...". The real star is redhead Patricia Kennedy, uber-hot and acting well to boot, as she saves Tony from apprehension by hiding the stolen gem (a very poor prop piece of plastic or lucite) in her ass, removing TT"s tell-tale fingerprints. Most amusing to me (my last name is Cohn) is a funny subplot of both Tony and Patricia having Jewish names, resolved by an authentic but nude Jewish Wedding happy ending for the pair!
