Naked as Nature Intended (1961) This ground-breaking British nudist film, from controversial director George Harrison Marks, caused a media sensation in the 1960s for its frank depiction of nakedness. Starring glamour legend Pamela Green, the movie follows the adventures of a group of pretty girls who trek across the south of England to reach a nudist camp in Cornwall, where they suddenly lose their inhibitions and bare all! Hugely successful, the movie ran for 18 months solidly in London alone.
Secrets of a Windmill Girl (1966) Filmed on location at Soho's infamous Windmill Theatre, a young Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine), resplendent in fishnet stockings, plays an innocent girl seduced by the sleazy world of striptease, orgies and drugs. But her downward spiral into vice has devastating consequences...
Two mediocre films for the price of one...
- Naked as Nature Intended / Secrets of a Windmill Girl review by CJ
The main feature is 'Secrets of a Windmill Girl'. It's a 60's docu drama look into being a Windmill Girl at the London Windmill Theatre coinciding with when the theatre closed for good. Sadly looking at the content of their musical reviews in the mid 60's it really had become a bit tired compared to its prime in the 30's and 40s. Sadly it does only focus on the 60s era.
The bonus film on this dvd is 'Naked As Nature Intended'. Not an excuse for an entire film to have naked female actresses? Or just an advert to show the healthy naturist lifestyle? Well it's not overly 'adult' in content by todays standards. It's a kind of staged documentary affair of several female friends experiencing a day on the English coast minus bathing costumes. Yes, we would all love to be free of clothes but there are quite a few reasons why outdoor naturism has never become popular in England. The main one being the weather. So this remains a historical fantasy where the experience of being free of clothes in the sun can only ever be a dream. I think I would quite like to see a non-sleazy modern remake of this film, but the 60s version is a bit forgettable...
