How to Undress in Public Without Undue Embarrassment (1965)
Well, this is a weird docu-film, and no mistake. I wouldn't normally look at anything post 1960, but I was intrigued as it starred Jon Pertwee in various "nude" romps, with Kenneth Connor and Reginald Beckwith making brief appearances, and a shared commentary by Fenella Fielding and, of all people, John Deacon.
Full marks to Renown Pictures for digging this oddity up - as the IMDb puts it "Comic survey of methods of undressing through the ages, from Victorian modesty to modern strip clubs."
50 minutes, filmed in B&W with original Soho nightclub clips, so done on the cheap - Jon's nude scenes, such as Adam in the Garden of Eden, was poorly edited and more than once you got a glimpse of the white underpants he was wearing.
It's a shame Fenella was only doing the commentary.
