Trivia

At one time this movie was banned in Boston. According to one Boston newspaper report of Jan. 2, 1939, "Descending upon the newsreel theatre in Huntington Ave. an hour before the first scheduled showing of a nudist colony film at a holiday midnight show, police blocked the running of the picture, titled 'Unashamed,' it was disclosed today. A New York group which had leased the theatre for the advertised showing of the film for a week was ordered not to run it by Captain Thomas F. Harvey of the Back Bay station after he had learned that John J. Casey, city censor, had not seen or approved the picture. Police appeared at the theatre as the regular Sunday night show was ending and as persons planning to see the nudist picture were gathering outside. As a result the midnight show was called off and the prospective patrons turned away." See more »

Unique among nudist exploitation films
13 July 2000 | by storeySee all my reviews

"The Unashamed" is unique among nudist exploitation films. Films set in nudist environments were popular from the early 1930s to the mid 1960s. A characteristic of virtually all nudist exploitation films is that they "preach" the benefits of non-lewd social nudity. Physical, emotional, social and spiritual health are all touted as a nearly guaranteed result of sunbathing with others in the nude. In "The Unashamed" one character actually experiences deep human sorrow. Issues of adultery, racism and suicide all make this a prime example of an exploitation film, but they also make the film stand out as the only nudist "volleyball epic" to address human experience in anything like realistic terms. Amazingly, nudism still comes across as pure and life-affirming. The social nudity clearly is not the cause of the problems the heroine faces. After watching dozens (or hundreds) of later nudist movies in which everyone is healthy and happy, "The Unashamed" provides a pleasant, although limited, dose of reality.
