Nudist documentaries entranced Beaumont moviegoers in 1933

Despite the Great Depression, most homemakers were making do with what they had to prepare a tasty Thanksgiving meal. People from all around Beaumont lined up for blocks outside the Rio and Liberty theaters, storming through the doors upon their opening. Both theaters were having midnight showings of two “documentaries” on the trend of nudist colonies in America and Europe. “Back to Nature” was a silent movie; the pictures said it all. Yet ads that ran in both The Beaumont Enterprise and the Beaumont Journal teased the imagination with provocative lines such as “the naked truth … about nudism,” “clear, candid closeups of our naked neighbors,” and “nice girls go nudist.”
