Nude On the Moon

1961, X, 83 min. Directed by Doris Wishman. Starring Marietta, William Mayer, Lester Brown, Pat Reilly, Ira Magee, Shelby Livingston, Lacey Kelly.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., Sept. 20, 2000

Doris Wishman was the queen of the nudies, soft-core exploitation films made during the Sixties. Wishman wrote, directed, produced, cast, and edited all her films, and she was incredibly prolific and singular. Nude on the Moon is the story of scientists who travel to the moon only to find it inhabited by – gasp! – hordes of nude women.
