OK, so the headline’s a bit of a tease. Irv, of course, has a no-nudity clause in his contract. No full monties here!
Nudity onscreen is as old as the exhibition of cinema, so we have a lot to choose from…though my guess is that Irv won’t be naming Yelena Maksimova’s grief-stricken romp from Dovzhenko’s Earth, opting instead for some more contemporary choices.
But why am I even continuing to write? We’ve mentioned the word nudity, so your mind is probably already wandering. Don’t start surfing until after you click that play button below to hear Movie Irv name his naked greats:
Wait, wait! Before you leave us to surf for, uhm, further inspiration, make sure you submit your own choices for the best moments of skinema, both female and male. Sexy, funny, disturbing, unexpected, vintage, take your pick. I’m going to name the skinny-dipping scene in Tarzan and His Mate right here, so let’s work it a little harder, yes? And afterwards, do some research on my top choices: the near-entirety of the Kate Winslet filmography and the goofy, gross grappling of Borat.
