|It's a Bare, Bare World (1963)|
|Writer: Monica Scott (commentary) / Director: W. Lang / Producer: Adrienne Fancey|
|Type: Nudist||Running Time: 33 mins (but see notes)|
|Three girlfriends called Vicki, Vera and Carol are on a trip to London. Vicki and Vera know the area and are showing their friend Carol the sights including Windsor Castle. After that they take a boat trip on the Thames as Vicki and Vera craftily guide their unsuspecting friend to the destination that they really want to show her. The boat drops them off down-river and they head through a country orchard and into a large private estate that is so well hidden by the trees no one would know it was there. The place is a nudist camp to which Vicki and Vera both belong as members and they are hoping that Carol will want to join too.
Carol is not angry and is quite happy to accompany her two friends in the camp but does not think she will want to take her clothes off. Vicki and Vera have no inhibitions and quickly undress in the club chalet and then all three of them proceed outside. The beautiful gardens are like a mini Garden of Eden and are a perfect setting for getting back to nature in the glorious summer sunshine. The two naked pals lead Carol through a glade towards a small river and Carol soon realises she is being silly and undresses too. Carol immerses herself in the fun activities and meets some of the other members as they all go splashing around in the water. Carol feels perfectly at ease with being naked and enjoys the feeling of complete freedom it allows her. They then do a spot of fruit picking from the trees and end their day with a meal around a table with the other naturists. They then get dressed and row away down the river on their way home.
|Starring:||Vicki Kennedy (as Vicki, [aka Margaret Nolan]), Vera Novak (as Vera), Carol Haynes (as Carol)|
|Featuring:||Leslie Bainbridge (as Leslie)|
|Starlets:||Denise Martin (as Denise), Angela Jones (as Angela) (not certain if these two actually appear in the cut down version)|
|The full-length version of this film is around 33 minutes long. It is in colour and has sound (possibly only a commentary, unclear if live dialogue was used). That version remains elusive. The one reviewed here was a 13-minute cut-down version for the 8mm home movie market. It is in soundless B&W and also lacks opening credits - but it is nevertheless quite clear which original film it is sourced from. This plot review is based on what happens in the part of the film seen. It is not known what occurs in the unseen portion.|
|It is known which girl is which out of the three main actresses because of other things that two of them have been seen in. The known cast list includes three additional names (2 female, 1 male). It seems fairly likely they appear somewhere in the cut-down film in places where the main trio are interacting with some other nudists, but it is not entirely certain.|
|This is one of a string of British films from around this time that managed to get around strict censorship rules on nudity by featuring stories involving naturism activities. The others were:- Nudist Paradise (1959), Travelling Light (1961), Nudist Memories (1959), For Members Only (1960) (aka The Nudist Story), Some Like It Cool (1961), Nudes of the World (1961), Sunswept (1961), Naked - as Nature Intended (1961), World Without Shame (1962), Take Off Your Clothes And Live (1962), My Bare Lady (1963), Eves on Skis (1963), The Reluctant Nudist (1963).|
|Director: Roy Deverell / Producer: John M. East|
|Type: Non-Fiction||Running Time: 45 mins|
|Comedian Bernie Winters hosts The Striptease World Championship in which 17 beautiful girls from all over the world compete for a first prize of £1000 and a Jamaican holiday. The girls first perform in pairs (with three together at the end). Once the judges have whittled the number down, the nine semi-finalists are individually interviewed by Bernie Winters who does his best to bring humour to the event with some banter. After a dance-off the final three are announced and the winner is Kathy. And in the finale the girls get their own back on Bernie Winters by pulling off his clothes on stage.|
|Starring:||Bernie Winters (Host)|
|Featuring:||John M. East (Introduction)|
|Starlets:||Kathy Green ("Southern England"), Maxine ("Botswana"), Chantal Gray ("Australia"), Julie Lee ("Hong Kong"), Katrina ("New Zealand"), Vicky#1 ("Turkey"), Vicky#2 ("Sweden"), Gloria Brittain ("Spain"), Samantha ("USA"), Angie Quick ("London"), Rita ("France"), Joy ("Wales"), Christina ("Holland"), Helena ("Greece"), Carol ("New Zealand"), Marie ("Sweden"), Shereen ("South Africa")|
|The names of the girls featured are not credited but their first names are used when they are introduced on stage. Some of them are recognised British models whose real first names are used, which suggests that might also be true for the names of the girls who have not been fully identified. The contestants are all said to come from a particular country but once they speak it is clear they are all British and make no pretence of coming from the country specified.|
|The use of Mary Millington's name in the title is completely misleading. She had recently died and this was an attempt to cash in on the appeal of her name. The justification used in the brief introductory sequence by John M East is that she also enjoyed stripping and a clip from one of her movies (Queen of the Blues) "demonstrates" this. Then the film moves onto the stage show and Mary Millington is never mentioned again.|
|This film follows the same lines as The Great British Striptease Festival (1980).|
|Nudes of the World (1961)|
|Writers/Producers: Stanley A. Long, Arnold Louis Miller / Director: Arnold Louis Miller|
|Type: Nudist / Drama||Running Time: 59 mins|
|Carol Wilson is competing in an International Beauty Contest at an English seaside resort. Carol is Miss England and when she wins the contest, the other 12 girls feel aggrieved and suspect she may have cheated because Carol has an all-over tan which gave her an unfair advantage and the others think it came from a bottle. Carol denies the accusations and explains that she got the tan because she likes to sunbathe in the nude at a sun club where a friend of hers is a member. The other girls are intrigued and all the unpleasantness is soon forgotten.
Rather than going home to their own countries, the beauty queens accept Carol's offer to come to stay at her house in the country. Her parents are away on holiday and her brother Ron is in the navy so they have the place to themselves. They sunbathe in their swimming costumes in the lovely English summer sunshine, but the idea of visiting a nudist camp still intrigues the others. They make enquiries but unfortunately all the regular nudist camps are fully booked. Their plans are seemingly dashed until the suggestion is made that they should try and form their own sun club. Ron comes home on leave with his friend Peter Graham and the girls soon involve them in the plans. Peter knows Lord Greystone who owns a large estate which he leases out each summer. It has excellent amenities including a lovely outdoor swimming pool.
The group head off to meet with Lord Greystone who is a very amiable fellow and is willing to rent them his land for the summer. But they cannot afford his price so they come to an arrangement whereby they will hold a garden fete during their stay and Lord Greystone will be given the proceeds. Lord Greystone agrees but insists half should be donated to a charity. Lord Greystone then heads off for his three-month summer vacation and it is only after he has gone that the friends realise they never actually mentioned they were going to start a nudist camp on his land and hope he won't be too upset when he finds out. Ron and Peter get to work setting up tents in the grounds and getting everything ready for a grand opening while the girls take out adverts in naturist magazines to let everyone know.
On opening day they are all delighted when many dozens of visitors arrive to have a fun naturist holiday in beautiful surroundings. Carol and her friends are kept very busy giving everyone a warm welcome and organising activities for the family groups. Everything is going swimmingly and their idea is proving to be a huge success. However, when Carol and Nikki head off to the local village, with their clothes on, to buy more supplies they find that not everyone shares the same enthusiasm for what they are doing. They get a very frosty reception from Mrs Haines, the owner of the convenience store, who treats them with disdain likening them to immoral shameless hussies for the way they carry on with no clothes over at Greystone Towers. When Nikki tries to talk to Mrs Haines' young daughter Carol, who is confined to a wheelchair, Mrs Haines becomes livid and the two girls make a hasty exit. Outside the shop they meet the local policeman, Sergeant Roberts, who is far more understanding. He explains that Mrs Haines is the local busybody with very rigid views and is always stirring up trouble about something. But she deserves sympathy because of her invalid daughter's debilitating condition which can only be cured with an expensive operation that can only be carried out in America and is not available on the National Health. Mrs Haines' worry about that causes her to overreact on other matters.
A few days later the group organise a camp excursion to visit a secluded naturist beach on a private island by the coast. They have a lot of fun but when they get back they are dismayed to find the empty camp has been trashed by mindless village louts. They work extra hard to repair everything and get the camp back up and running and soon their good spirits are restored.
It comes time to think about the money-raising fete they promised to organise and decide upon a worthy charity. They think it very unlikely anyone from the village will attend because of the ill-will stirred up by Mrs Haines, so they extend an invitation to members of other nudist camps from all over the country to come and visit them and help with their fund-raising activities while enjoying a good day out. And Carol has a good idea about the charity they could support.
The fete is a roaring success and they make a lot of money but the next day trouble is brewing. Mrs Haines has organised a protest rally of villagers who are marching towards the Greystone estate with placards denouncing the nudist camp as a sinful place. The friends don't know what they should do until unexpectedly Lord Greystone returns early from his holiday. He had been alerted to possible trouble by Sergeant Roberts with whom he had left his holiday address.
Lord Greystone is given the charity proceeds and whole-heartedly approves of their plans for the money. Greystone then meets up with Mrs Haines at the gates who is a bit taken aback that Lord Greystone is there and seemingly not concerned about the goings on in his grounds. She is even more overwhelmed when Lord Greystone presents her with the money which he tells her the members here have raised to help pay for her daughter's operation. Mrs Haines is overcome with emotion and cannot believe that they would do such a generous thing for her after all she has said. The protest is called off and the situation is diffused.
Carol and her friends expect Lord Greystone to be angry that they didn't tell him about their plans to start up a nudist camp. But Lord Greystone surprises them by revealing that he is in fact a confirmed naturist himself and he always goes to a nudist camp for his summer vacation so now he can stay here instead and enjoy the facilities they have set up.

|Type: Comedy||Running Time: 90 mins|
|Prologue. In France in 1759 at a small village medical practice run by the chaotic Dr Duval, a mix-up is about to occur that will influence the future destiny of France. The wife of lowly peasant Andre Coupe is already in labour when nobleman Duke de Sisi and his pregnant wife are forced to seek the doctor's aid after being unable to get to Paris in time to consult the court doctor. Both wives have twin boys which in the confusion are all placed together in a single cot. Afterwards Dr Duval cannot remember which twin-pair belong to which parents so he presents one of each pair of twins to the two unsuspecting couples on the basis that they will each definitely get one correct baby and since twins are not necessarily always identical it won't matter. One set of mismatched twins are raised to a life of privilege and opportunity, whilst the others know only a peasant's life of squalor and hardship. End of Prologue.
Thirty years pass and the boys are all grown men. Claude and Charles Coupe are the peasant brothers who enjoy a close bond as they live off their cowardly wits. But they have recently been dragooned into joining in with a band of peasant activists intent of overthrowing the country's monarchy and its system of unjust privileges that the aristocracy hold. However both of the Coupe brothers are fairly inept at insurgency and are considered unreliable by the rebel leader Jacques. In contrast, the noble De Sisi twins, Philippe and Pierre, live a life of opulent splendour in their family mansion in Corsica. They are well educated and are both expert swordsmen. The De Sisi twins are known as the Corsican brothers and their fearsome fighting reputation is respected throughout Europe. Of course neither sets of twins are identical but we, the viewer, can see that each pair are different in the exact same way.
At the royal Summer Palace, the French king, Louis XVI, is in a predicament. He is in his dotage and is despised by his young wife Marie Antoinette and his scheming adviser Duke d'Escargot. The king is rightly paranoid that Marie and d'Escargot are plotting against him to take over France and fears for his life. He knows he cannot trust anyone in his court to protect him so he sends a letter to the De Sisi brothers summoning them to help keep him safe. However Duke d'Escargot intercepts this letter and thinks he may be able to subvert the king's plan with a timely intervention that will result in the king's death. D'Escargot and Marie are lovers and when the king is dead d'Escargot will be free to marry her and together they will rule France.
D'Escargot travels to Corsica to meet the De Sisi brothers and recruits them to his own cause by offering them half of France to share between them if they betray the king once they are in his confidence. The greedy and ambitious brothers readily agree and taking d'Escargot's advice they travel to Paris incognito on a freight barge disguised as lowly peasants.
However this barge is also carrying weapons and ammunition supplies for the army and the rebels have made plans to seize the munitions for themselves. Rebel leader Jacques orders Claude and Charles to create a diversion by making a two-man surprise attack on the quayside allowing Jacques and his men steal the supplies whilst the soldiers are busy dealing with them. The brothers know it is suicidal but have little choice but to obey. Claude is especially saddened that he may never see his beloved fiancée Mimi Montage again. But when the moment comes the Coupe brothers revert to cowardly form and run for cover after letting off a single shot. The noise scares the horses and in the confusion the guards believe they are really under attack and fighting ensues. On the barge the Corsican brothers are caught up in the action and because they are dressed in threadbare peasant's garb they have no choice but to fight with the rebels because the soldiers are trying to kill them. Philippe and Pierre use all their skills and easily overcome the odds and best the soldiers much to the amazement of Jacques who believes them to be his inept and expendable conscripts, Charles and Claude.
Meanwhile away from the action Charles and Claude are bemused to find themselves being ushered into a waiting carriage by d'Escargot's men who believe them to be the De Sisi brothers in disguise because they exactly match the description given. The two lowly brothers are mystified to be driven to the royal palace and treated as if they were visiting dignitaries by all and sundry. They are told to wait in a luxurious room until the king is ready to see them and they are too dumfounded to question it and just play along assuming it will all become clear in due course.
Their first visitor is called d'Escargot whom they have never met but who seems to know them. As far as d'Escargot is concerned he has absolutely no reason to doubt that the pair are not the same two men he met in Corsica. When they are alone again the Coupe brothers realise that for some unknown reason everyone thinks they are the famous Corsican brothers, whom they know of by reputation but have never seen. They decide the safest option is to play along and pretend to be who they have been mistaken for until they get a chance to escape.
Meanwhile at the rebel stronghold Jacques and his men are celebrating the success of their mission and checking their newly seized weapons. The real Corsican brothers have allowed themselves to be taken to the rebel headquarters believing them to be king's men in disguise but they quickly become irate by Jacques' confusion on that matter. Their atypical forthright manner bewilders Jacques who has to have them subdued to keep their uncharacteristic aggression under control. The pair are even under the laughable delusion they are the famous Corsican brothers and Jacques reckons their brains must have become addled and takes them to the Insane Asylum where they are thrown into the dungeons.
Meanwhile the peasant brothers are afforded proper nobleman's attire and they effect the necessary refined accents and deportment expected from one of noble birth. The king comes to their chamber to explain why he sent for the Corsican brothers. A marriage is to be announced between Princess Christina of Belgium and Duke d'Escargot and the king fears that the plotters will then enlist the Belgian army to overthrow him. The king's plan is that Pierre will marry Christina instead and through that alliance the king's troops will be strengthened by the addition of Belgian forces - but first the pair must kill d'Escargot who is the greatest swordsman in all of France equalled only by the Corsican brothers in skill. The brothers know they have no chance but continue to play along waiting for an opportunity to escape.
At the ball that night the Coupe brothers bask in the borrowed glory that the reputation of the Corsican brothers lends them. The beautiful Princess Christina arrives and is immediately attracted to Pierre. At the ball Marie and d'Escargot decide that the Corsican brothers are too dangerous and must be killed.
In their room that night the Coupe brothers narrowly escape death at the hands of d'Escargot's henchmen and are chased around the palace. Claude stumbles into Marie's room and she immediately starts trying to plot with him against d'Escargot. Her loyalty is only to herself and she clearly plans to betray he co-conspirator down the line. D'Escargot later proposes they side with him and plot against Marie so he too has no loyalty but to himself. The brothers pretend to agree to everything put to them.
With the assassination failed the "Corsican" brothers are no longer in immediate danger with all parties believing them to be plotting with them. Claude knows that the danger is only temporarily abated and they must still escape. He also wants to be reunited with his fiancée Mimi so he uses his borrowed influence to have her arrested and brought to the palace by soldiers on the pretext that he wants to question her.
Meanwhile in the dungeons of the Insane Asylum the resourceful Corsican brothers, still dressed as peasants, have dug a hole and found a way into an underground tunnel system which they think must lead to the palace. They slowly head that way through the maze of tunnels intent on carrying out their allotted mission of killing the king for d'Escargot.
Once Mimi has arrived Claude places her in the charge of Christina who has by now revealed she is not a princess after all but a handmaiden in disguise. Christina immediately thinks she recognises Mimi as her long lost sister kidnapped as a child by gypsies. Mimi denies it and Christina becomes obsessed with trying to get Mimi's clothes off to compare distinguishing birthmarks to which Mimi strenuously objects.
Unfortunately the seemingly motiveless arrest of peasant girl Mimi by the palace guards has stirred the peasants into immediate action and they are amassing outside the palace preparing to storm it. The bulk of the king's forces are far afield pillaging the rest of Europe and so defences are weak.
Claude and Charles confess to the king they are not really the Corsican brothers and change back into their peasant garb. They convince the king that the only way to head off the peasants revolting is to sign a decree conceding to their demands for equality, liberty and freedom. The king agrees and signs a reform document. But then d'Escargot and Marie find out and accuse them of being traitors and orders the guards to kill them on sight.
Just then the real Corsican brothers find their way out of the catacomb of tunnels into the palace and they are dressed identically to the Coupe brothers. As the merry chase progresses around the palace the various parties split up and re-meet with cross-purpose misunderstandings abounding as their various conflicting objectives create farcically confused exchanges.
Eventually, the Coupe brothers make it outside with the reform document knowing that if they can get it to Jacques in time the bloodshed can be averted. But they are just too late and the peasants storm the palace and take on the palace's meagre defence forces in pitched battle. The reform document is trampled and destroyed in the melee and all hope for a peaceful end to the unrest is lost.
Then in the heat of the battle the Corsican brothers and the Coupe brothers suddenly come face to face and they stop in total amazement with neither pair believing what they are seeing ... (THE END, cut back to the present day presenter)
Epilogue: The film is introduced by a modern day presenter who professes to have new facts about the French Revolution which nearly changed the course of history. The film we see is then a dramatisation of the new facts uncovered. At the film's climax the presenter prepares to reveal the hither-to unknown consequences of that momentous meeting of the two mismatched twin sets, when he is gunned down and killed by the twins' descendants so their secret will never be revealed ...

|Tony and his French friend Pierre have organised a special holiday adventure for themselves and Tony's female cousin Lee and eight of her girlfriends. The girls have decided to travel to Cannes, where Tony's borrowed yacht is moored, using three different methods. Lee, Heidi, Mandy and Jasmine arrive the conventional way by jetting into Nice-Cote D'azur Airport directly from London to be met by Tony and Pierre who drive them directly to the quay at Cannes harbour on the Riviera. Meanwhile June, Pat and Barbara are travelling from the South of France in a vintage jalopy that is always breaking down. And finally Carol and Ingrid decide to hitchhike across France.
Whilst the main group are waiting for the others to arrive they spend their time provisioning the yacht ready for their trip. The three intrepid motorists in their old banger arrive first followed soon afterwards by the two hitchhikers and at last the friends are all together. They spend the first few days enjoying Cannes and Pierre takes them to his uncle's grand palatial villa built on the edge of a cliff with steps leading down to its own private beach. Pierre's uncle likes his privacy and formed one of the first naturist clubs along the coast. It turns out that most of the friends have tried naturism before and so they all strip off to their briefs and sun themselves on the private beach. They share a belief that sunbathing naked is the best health tonic which stimulates the mind and the body. On their sailing trip they intend to spend some days at the secluded isle of Levant which is a dedicated naturist resort.
After a few more days enjoying normal holidaying activities along the coast they are ready to set sail. Tony is the skipper and puts the girls to work crewing the boat. Their first little adventure is a jaunt to a nearby uninhabited island to search for some treasure which Lee believes is buried there after a friend gave her a mysterious old treasure map. They shed their tops and split up into teams to search for specified landmarks so they can follow the map's directions. The excitement mounts as they wonder what riches they might discover. When they find the spot the buried item turns out to be an old goblet of no huge value which they happily donate to a local museum.
With that task accomplished they head off for their main destination of Levant which is an oasis of beauty. The island's facilities are purposely very basic to help promote a more natural way of living without clothes and without any reminders of modern life. The slow pace of life there allows its visitors to relax in natural idyllic surroundings where they can harmonise with nature and appreciate the simple essentials of life. Days of fun and relaxation follow for the group of friends but eventually their fortnight's holiday comes to an end and they sadly have to leave the wonderful island and all the lovely new friends they have met there. But they vow to return again the next year as they reflect on the wonderful memories they will take away with them of their magical Mediterranean holiday in paradise.
|Starring:||Ian Michael (as Tony), Gino Neenan (as Pierre), Jenny Lane (as Lee), Margaret Collins (as Mandy), Maureen Haydon (as June), Terry Lee (as Ingrid), Susan Irwin-Clark (as Carol), Paula Ku-Chih (as Jasmine), Angela Lowe (as Patricia), Ulla Thoren (as Barbara), Hedy Borland (as Heidi)|
|Also:||Anna Silvers (as Marie, [as shown on credits although there is no one in it called Marie or any unaccounted for characters])|
|Despite partaking in what they call "naturism" they all keep their briefs on throughout.|
|The film has no live sound. Instead we hear the narrative voices of several of the friends provided by uncredited voice artistes who talk the words and thoughts of those assembled and even banter together as if (in modern parlance) providing a retrospective commentary track.|
