interesting sociological document, making clear attitudes to nudity in the US
This film is somewhat amateurish, but it gives an interesting view of American attitudes to nudity and sex. To European eyes it is not particularly lewd or pornographic. There are some amazing shots, the parade of the candidates all holding a little white balloon and he two officers opening the cortege. But the most remarkable views are those of fully clothed overweight middle class males making snapshots at maximum speed without (I presume) caring for background or composition. Although beauty parades in some European nudist camps do occur, they are more casual and everyone is naked not only the competing women and a few freakish hirsute males. In short this documentary gives an amusing view of puritans going to the dogs and so it would be a good item in a film showing amusing American habits.
