Unique and Historical Film. Worth Watching.
29 August 2002 | by redbosoxSee all my reviews

I've watched this movie twice now since it's pretty short and I wanted to write a decent review. I believe that this is the first feature film to ever be made at a nudist colony. Basically the plot is that a reporter is writing an article about a nudist colony. He's convinced by the man who runs the colony, Dr. King, and his beautiful secretary, Miss Prudence King (portrayed by Betty DeSalle) to experiences the pleasures of being nude. The film basically proves that nudists live just as ordinary people, with one obvious exception. The film is almost documentary like and I'm still not sure if it is or not. I don't think so, but it sure seems like it is. I feel that this film was made to prove that being a nudist is not a bad thing at all. In fact, the people seemed very happy and at peace. I enjoyed the film for more than just the nudity. I appreciate the efforts of someone actually making a movie on this type of subject way back in 1934. Nowadays this is nothing but back then, WOW! A cult classic definitely worth watching!
