Beginnings; nudist films
Her first films are called nudist camp films or Nudist romances. In
1957, a New York Appeals court ruling allowed films depicting nudism
to be exhibited in movie theaters in New York State. Wishman was
familiar with the appeal and potential of nudist camp movies due to
her acquaintances with Walter Bibo, whose film Garden of Eden gained
notoriety due its influence of swaying censorship laws for filming
nudity. Inspired by this development, Wishman claimed in several
interviews to have borrowed $10,000 from her sister to produce her
first film, Hideout in the Sun, a nudist film, shot in late 1958 and
released in early 1960. Her next film, Nude on the Moon, released
in 1961, was a science fiction nudie. The film was banned in New
York State after the New York State Censorship Board ruled that
films featuring nudity in a nudist colony were legally permissible
but nudity in a fantasy film set in a "nudist colony on the Moon"
was not. [ ... ] Wishman produced eight nudist films in total
between 1958 and 1964. After the popularity of the genre began to
wane, she decided to abandon nudist exploitation films and
transition into the new sexploitation genre.
