Nude twisting! Nude trampolining! Nude beatniks! These are among the many highlights of Nature’s Playmates, one of the delightful early Sixties nudist flicks brought to you by the team of DAVID F. FRIEDMAN and HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS! Following the success of Daughter of the Sun, Herschell and Dave went back to Miami to shoot this one, the second of their four nudist-camp movies.
This time around, private investigator Russ Harper (SCOTT OSBORNE) and his brassy blonde assistant, Diana (VICKI MILES), are hired by a Mrs. Elliot (TERI STEVENS) to find her missing husband, Paul: "I’m afraid my husband is in a nudist camp somewhere doing heaven knows what!" The prudish client also offers the clue that Paul has a Navy tattoo on his arm before Russ and Diana head to Miami in search of her stray spouse.
Well, all those pretty dresses Diana bought for the trip won’t do her much good because at the first camp they go to they’re informed that the only way to gain access is by becoming members. Professional duty calls so Russ and Diana strip down to their birthday suits and blend in with the others, all the while trying not to stare and look too conspicuous. But nope, Paul isn’t there, so they move on to the next camp.
Upon arriving at Pleasure Garden, Diana is immediately invited by a "Peter Ellsworth" (PETER LATHROP) to participate in the big Twist Contest. Oh boy! As if that wasn’t exciting enough, they follow it up with some naked bouncing on a trampoline! Fellow camp members are mesmerized (as you’ll be too) by the giggling unclothed gals jumping up and down!
It turns out that Peter is actually Paul. He quickly explains, "Have you met my wife? Now you know why I don’t want to go home!" That gives Diana the brilliant idea to invite Mrs. Elliot down to visit her husband in his natural element. The reluctant housewife gives in and (of course) becomes a sun worshipper for her man! And having seen so much of each other during their investigation, Russ and Diana decide to get married! Yup, nudism equals instant happiness and joy!
Bunny Yeager model Vicki Miles not only starred in a number of Lewis / Friedman nudies (Boinng!, Goldilocks and the Three Bares, Scum of the Earth) but worked behind the scenes on many of Herschell’s films as either assistant director or screenwriter (Blood Feast, Alley Tramp, The Gruesome Twosome, The Girl The Body and The Pill, She-Devils on Wheels, Just for the Hell of It) under her real name ALLISON LOUISE DOWNE.
From the original 35mm "Filmed in Seepelt" negative which was missing the last ten minutes so we filled it in with footage from a rare super-8mm b&w reel.
