Nudie Cuties

8 Feb

Just to give some  of you a bit of a taster of the topic, here are some examples I found on YouTube (and elsewhere):

Nudie Cuties begin with hygiene films. I found one glorious one – featuring lots of footage of diseased penises – a 1942 hygiene film produced for the US Navy. It’s in 2 parts:

The second major trend in this development is the influence from burlesque and stripper shows. Here is an example of the kind thing I’m talking about:

I also managed to find one of the burlesque ‘feature’ films, Teaserama (Irving Klaw, 1955) starring Bettie Page. Here you’ll see the classic burlesque numbers as well as the corny comedian bits between the dance numbers.

I also found this little gem; not a burlesque movie per se, but about burlesque performers and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Lady of Burlesque (William A. Wellman, 1943)

Nudie Cuties begin with The Immoral Mr. Teas (Russ Meyer, 1959). Unfortunately, the only online version I could find is in Russian. The film is photographed silent with a voice track overdubbing it, so not much is lost here:

I also found a Russian version of Goldilocks and the Three Bares (Herschell Gordon Lewis, 1963):

We also have Dr. Sex (Ted V. Mikels, 1964):

And Diary of a Nudist (Doris Wishman, 1961):

Finally, and again, I’ll update this page if anyone finds any more online films of this sort.
