Trash film-maker extraordinaire Doris Wishman's final and most sought-after entry in the Nudist Exploitation genre! An attractive and successful businessman named Prince takes an interest in the blond half of a pair of newly hired identical twins. The girls, Eve and Sue, are polar opposites - Eve, the blonde, is lazy and uninhibited while Sue, the brunette, is hardworking and demure. Captivated by Eve, Prince is over the moon when he runs into her that weekend at his favorite nudist camp. A light flirtation ensues, with neither realizing that stay-at-home Sue is helplessly in love. When Eve leaves to attend a friend's wedding, Sue embarks upon a deception that will change their lives forever. This fascinating mash-up of classic fairytale and nudist exploitation genre could only come from the febrile imagination of cult filmmaker Doris Wishman. Sourced from the only known 35mm print, this first-ever DVD transfer includes a brand-new English dialog track, commentary with filmmakers Michael Raso and John Fedele with Doris Wishman biographer Michael Bowen, liner notes booklet, trailers and short films. Bonus features include: Trailer for Dorish Wishman's Nudist Classic Hideout in the Sun , Short Film: Rock Lodge Nudist Camp, Short Film: About Nudism, Short Film: The Nature Girl, Short Media Segment: Atomic TV, Commentary by Wishman biographer Michael Bowen and filmmakers Michael Raso and John Fedele, Essay / Liner Notes booklet by Wishman biographer Michael Bowen

In the wake of the success of Dario Argento s ground-breaking giallo The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, numerous other directors stepped forward to try their hand at these lurid murder-mysteries. At the forefront was Sergio Martino (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh, Torso), whose sensual 70s thrillers starring Edwige Fenech and George Hilton are widely celebrated as some of the best the genre has to offer.

The final of Martino s six gialli, The Suspicious Death of a Minor combines conventional giallo trappings with elements of the then flourishing poliziotteschi crime thrillers. Claudio Cassinelli (What Have They Done to Your Daughters?) stars as undercover cop Paolo Germi, on the trail of a Milanese criminal outfit following the brutal murder of an underage prostitute. But a killer-for-hire is also on the prowl, bumping off witnesses before they have a chance to talk...

Also starring Mel Ferrer (Nightmare City), Barbara Magnolfi (Suspiria) and Jenny Tamburi (The Psychic), and featuring a script by veteran giallo writer Ernesto Gastaldi (All the Colors of the Dark, Death Walks at Midnight), this unique and lesser-known entry in Martino s filmography serves as an essential link between two different movements in Italian popular cinema.
