I’m going to start out by saying I watched this on Amazon Prime, and it appears that some scenes may have been cut out. The DVD apparently has the full film, and even a few extras.
The plot is very simple. Coldly logical British businesswoman Jane Robinson (Shelly Martin) inherits the bulk of her uncle’s estate, including the Avonmore Sun Club, a nudist camp. Her uncle had apparently planned to turn the land over to the club, which is renting, but died before this could happen, so now Robinson plans to sell the land to pay the death duties.
Handsome nudist and lawyer, Bob Sutton (Brian Cobby) convinces her to at least visit the place before making a final decision. She does, and quickly falls in love with both the camp and with Bob. This is a problem for French cutie Gloria Phillips (Jaqueline D’Orsay), who’s been after Bob herself. Phillips sets up a scene that makes Robinson think she’s sleeping with Bob, so now it looks like the sale may be back on.
With the help of the indomitable Aunt Meg (Natalie Lynn), who’d at first considered the camp a disgrace to the family, but warmed to it once Robinson took her there to celebrate her birthday, all is straightened out and you get your standard happy ending.
The Nudist Story is distinguished by, among other things, better production values, and much better actors, than you’d expect of the genre. That doesn’t stop them from using the same swimming pool scene twice, of course. The streaming version apparently has less actual nudity than the original, so the DVD is likely the best bet. Martin is a slender, dark-haired British beauty, whose only other credit was as script girl on Deep Throat. Cobby was a competent actor with a respectable screen history, and even better known as a voice-over actor.
