Private eye Russ Harper (Scott Osborne) and his assistant Diana (Vicki Miles) are hired to fly down to Florida to find one Paul Elliott (Peter Lathrop) by his wife Sandra (Teri Stevens). According to his wife, he had been a practicing nudist before their marriage and thus might hide in a - gasp! - nudist camp.

Harper and Sandra of course accept the assignment, but once in Florida, they have to realize that the only way to get into a nudist camp is to, well, get naked. At first the two have their reservations of course, but soon they find the constant nudity liberating and start to enjoy all sorts of nude activities - the usual: volleyball, skinny dipping, trampoline jumping and even chess. Then during a twist tournament, Sandra is rather by chance partnered with Elliott, and she and Harper soon become friends with him, mainly because they share his enthusiasm for the nudist lifestyle. But there's still their assignment ...

Elliott claims he loves his life, but will give up nudism for nothing in the world - which is when Diana decides to take things into her own hands, lures Sandra to the nudist camp, persuades her to get naked, and has her meet her hubby in the nude amidst all those nudists. Works like a charm of course.

In the end, for no apparent reason, Diana decides to marry her boss ...


In the late 1950's and early 60's, nudist camp films were a dime a dozen, and basically this is just one of them, a film that might have raised a few eyebrows back in the day but seems hilariously innocent (except for American TV) nowadays. The detective framing story for all the nudity makes this certainly one of the more inspired films of its ilk, at least on a narrative level, but by and large this is more about naked people doing stuff in the nude than anything else. Sure, you might get a mild laugh out of this, and I know I did, but considering director Herschell Gordon Lewis made the trailblazing gore film Blood Feast only one year later, there is nothing in this film that would suggest Lewis would leave his mark on cinema history (for better or worse) within so short a time ...
