Cultpix Radio Ep.68 - Doris Wishman's Nudist Years, with Michael J. Bowen
May 25, 2023 Season 6 Episode 68
Django Nudo, the Smut Peddler and Michael Bowen

Smut and Django are at the Cannes Film Festival (technically the Marche - Market) to meet with distributors and sign deals. There was a great article in Variety about the latest batch of Cultpix deals, which mean that we have over 250 more films to add later this year, with some real cult classics. 

This episode is the third devoted to Doris Wishman, focusing on the sun-soaked 'Daylight Years' and early nudist films. As one of the most prolific women filmmakers in the history of American cinema, "writer-director-editor Wishman created collisions between surrealism and exploitation that feel like they materialized from an alternate universe."

Smut interviews film historian Michael J. Bowen who met and knew Doris, as well as having researched her career for years as her biographer. 

The films of The Daylight Years are gorgeously restored by AGFA + Something Weird Video. They include:

"Nude on the Moon" (1961) - Wishman's dreamlike sci-fi triumph about a trip to a nudist-inhabitet moon.

"Blaze Starr Goes Nudist" (1962) - The famous burlesque dancer discovers the joy in nudism and escapes down to Florida.  

"Hideout in the Sun" (1960) - A crackpot nudie-noir in which two gangsters on the run decide to hide in plain sight at a nudist resort. 

"Gentlemen Prefer Nature Girls" (1963) - Tom is fired from his real-estate job when his boss discovers that he is a nudist, but he hatches a very nudist revenge plan.

"Diary of a Nudist" (1961) - Newspaper editor stumbles on nudist camp and commissions young female reporter to write exposé about the sordid lifestyle. 

"The Prince and the Nature Girl" (1965) - A prince escapes his castle and falls in love with a woman who turns out to be a nudist. 

Enjoy all these films and the other Doris Wishman films on Cultpix. 

There is a Spotify playlist of 13 nudie songs from Doris Wisman's films and three clips where you hear Doris speak.
