1. the history of the nudist/naturist movement in America,
2. the history of nudist/naturist film,
3. the state of the nudist/naturist movement today, and
4. humorous fictional elements that keep the viewer interested.
If you are seriously interested in the nudist/naturist lifestyle and/or are already a nudist/naturist, I strongly recommend this film.
It was worth what I paid.
(As an advance review of "The Naked Place", from the outtakes shown in this "documentary", the acting looks really bad and the plot weak so I'm not surprised T.L. was looking for ways to save his project. I also guess this movie was initially going to be dvd "extras" for the feature film, but if no one buys the first film...?)
The "making of" aspect was a farce as you can tell the actors were, yes, acting (poorly) the roles of actors auditioning for, and then acting in, the film. An example of this is a scene with one of the main actresses and her boyfriend, both nude of course, at their home discussing whether or not she should audition for the film. Um, we're supposed to ignore the fact that this was allegedly BEFORE she decided to audition, and there is already a surreptitious cameraman in their living room that they somehow don't notice? More of the same type stuff follows with the auditions, etc.
As far as the nudism history, there wasn't anything new brought up that anyone with a brain doesn't already know. It was mostly snippets of "nude news" type broadcasts and some brief glances of vintage nudist films (probably from T.L.'s personal collection). I do have to say that the naturist organizations mentioned might be worth looking in to for those wanting to pursue the lifestyle.
Overall there were some nice looking nude actresses, so that's why I gave it 2 stars. But again, the acting is atrocious and the movie itself disjointed.

Pretty lame video. Not much in it. Forget about it.
The DVD was so bad it really isn't worth writing a review. Sorry. Buy at your own risk.
This was a little dull. It is a history about naturalism, but it does not have the History Channel quality for quality educational. I would not suggest anyone buy this.Published on August 28, 2008 by Lamar White
