This Nude World DVD
This unusual compilation of two films takes a decidedly positive view of the burgeoning nudist movement in the early 1930’s. The narrator nonchalantly takes his audience to a nudist community in the Catskill Mountains of New York followed by a risqué venture to exotic Paris and the island nudist colony of the French "Naturists" led by Dr. Gaston Durville and then to the more liberal "Sparta Club" (they wore no clothes at all) headed by M. Kienne de Mongeot. Finally the film goes to Berlin, at that time a hotbed of sexual freedom and liberal thought. After observing some nightlife, the audience is taken on a tour of the Berlin Körperkulturschule (body culture school) one of the largest and most organized nudist colonies in the world, founded by human sexuality pioneer Adolph Koch and his English speaking wife, Ilse Dieball.Dr. Gaston Durville, Dr. André Durville, Ilka Dieball, M.
