Alison (Allison Louise Downe) and Cynthia (Judy Parsons), the
girlfriends of crooner Eddie (Rex Marlow) and Tommy (William Kerwin) have
the strange habit of disappearing from the face of the earth every
weekend, which pisses Eddie and Tommy off so much that one Friday, Tommy
secretly follows the two girls and find out that they are spending their
weekends at a nudist camp, in the altogether.
Of course, Eddie and Tommy are totally shocked at first (remember, this
is '63, when nudity wasn't something you just would do), but then Alison
explains to them the healthy effects of nudism - on both a physical and
mental level - and invites them to visitors day at her nudist camp. There
the two learn more about the nudist lifestyle - well, they just go
waterskiing, horseback riding, yachting and play ball, all in the nude ...
and in the end, both Tommy and Eddie hit the stage of the nudist camp
(still naked, of course), to do what they do best, comedy and singing,
Obviously, they have come to terms with their girlfriends' lifestyles
A typical early 1960's nudist flick, full of people turning their backs
(and bottoms) to the camera and croughing unnaturally to not show their
priamry sex organs (this was still a big no-no back then, even in nudist
movies), with a story that tells nothing much in particular but drags on
and on about the nudist lifestyle and eventually resembles more of a
travelogue than anything else. Director Herschell Gordon Lewis, more
prominent for his gore flicks (like this film, his trailblazing Blood
Feast premiered in 1963), seems like a fish out of water here, his
raw style of filmmaking that is usually so enjoyable just seems
indifferent here and his trademark tongue-in-cheek humour seems mostly
amiss here. As nudist films go, this one is run-of-the-mill ... which says
much about the quality (or rather lack thereof) of this film.
