The extra's (of which there is over an hour) are the piece de resistance. You get trailers from 6 nudism related movies, extra footage from The Naked Venus, four shorts on nudity, a heap of poster art/production stills from various nudity related movies (with radio discussions over the top) and an easter egg of a nudist wedding.
About half of the extra's are in black and white (as is The Naked Venus). Some have been restored to very good quality but one or two are almost unwatchable. There is virtually no full frontal nudity, but lots of breasts and bottoms.
Everything is from the 50's and 60's and looks it (even naked, you can tell the era from the hair/makeup (sometimes this is caked on) and the cars). If you're interested in the history of nudity or nudity in films then this is highly recommended.
I would add that both films has a couple of very pretty ladies. One short scene in Diary of a couple of girls sqealing under a cold hose is wonderful, and more sexy than 98% of anything the adult industry has turned out.
Also, some of the extras, "info" films about nudism from the fifties, are just hilarious. Quite amazing.
"Diary of a Nudist" is, the ridiculous story and low-budget production values notwithstanding, probably not a completely inaccurate look at what life in a 1960's nudist camp was like. I would just add that in real life there would likely be a wider diversity of bodies than the perfect specimens on hand here. So sit back, relax, and-- once you get past the endless scene of happy nudists arriving at the club and letting themselves in the gate-- enjoy a silly little drama (and ultimately romance story) set in the sunshine and peace of a 60's-era Florida nudist resort.
"The Naked Venus" is more of an outright hoot. Filmed in crisp black and white, this is essentially a courtroom drama with a little bit of nudism thrown in for good measure. Two things really stand out. First, the movie revolves around a custody battle for a little kid. So what does the woman who wants custody of her kid do once she runs off with the little tyke? She immediately takes refuge in a nudist camp. Now, there quite possibly may be nothing wrong with nudism, but would a nudist resort be the FIRST PLACE you'd go when the other side is looking for ANY LITTLE THING to put forth as a red flag and cause for concern about a person's fitness to be a mother?Read more ›
