Unashamed: A Romance / Elysia (Kino Forbidden Fruit V3) (Blu-Ray)

$19.99

In an unusual reversal of the usual exploitation formula—in which scenes of sex, violence, and drug abuse were wrapped in a dire warning of moral degradation—the nudist film took a more positive approach to its subject matter. Arguing for the health benefits of sunlight and the detrimental effects of constrictive clothing, films such as Unashamed: A Romance and Elysia (Valley of the Nude) presented nudism as a positive lifestyle choice, and proved their point with only slightly unobstructed views of naked flesh.

UNASHAMED: A ROMANCE / ELYSIA (VALLEY OF THE NUDE) (FORBIDDEN FRUIT: THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE EXPLOITATION PICTURE   Volume 3)

In an unusual reversal of the usual exploitation formula—in which scenes of sex, violence, and drug abuse were wrapped in a dire warning of moral degradation—the nudist film took a more positive approach to its subject matter. Arguing for the health benefits of sunlight and the detrimental effects of constrictive clothing, films such as Unashamed: A Romance and Elysia (Valley of the Nude) presented nudism as a positive lifestyle choice, and proved their point with only slightly unobstructed views of naked flesh. But more surprising than the nudity is that Unashamed reveals itself to be a remarkably poignant drama about the unrequited love between a mixed-race woman (Rae Kidd) and her employer (Robert Stanley).Audio commentary for Unashamed by film historian Alexandra Heller-Nicholas / Nudist-Land (1937, 11 Min.) / Why Nudism: An Exposé of Nudism (ca. 1938, 22 Min.) / Hollywood Script Girl (1938, 5 Min.)
