I was introduced to this film as a Sellers fan and wasn't disappointed. The other leading actors also gave fine performances.

The plot revolves around a blackmail and consequently murder plots that get entangled.

The pace is quite quick for a 50's film.

If you liked Ealing Studios' "The Lady Killers" you'll probably like this film as well, that has a faster tempo but slightly less finespun.

I don't consider it to be a masterpiece, however it's well made and very funny at times.

Thankfully pretty well English subtitled with only a short trailer as an extra.

If for some reason you're not up to watching it all, don't miss the ending scene, as it's one of the best LOL endings without giving anything away.

Buyer beware, blue cover MGM DVD 2005 release of The Naked Truth 1957 Region 1 US import NTSC is in the old 4x3 letterboxed widescreen format not anamorphic enhanced for widescreen 16:9, so on a widescreen TV you'll need to zoom up the picture quite a lot -'can be rather tricky to do satisfactory with this defunct VHS /LaserDisc /DVD format without zooming up too much or too little to achieve the correct picture area on your screen while causing the picture to look soft focus on this version.

An entertaining film with an excellent cast. Blackmailer Dennis Price (a wonderful performance) targets a number of celebrities including Peter Sellers, Peggy Mount and Terry-Thomas (playing a rather dishonest Lord) who all have something to hide - Price threatens to reveal all in a scandal magazine he produces called "The Naked Truth". The celebrities decide to take steps...with hilarious results!

This is one of the best in British comedy,an ensemble piece and acted with great gutso by the great Joan Sims. All performances are great especially Peter Sellers in his various disguises. There has been comments for a few people about the quality of the print of this film, my copy was great, perhaps they have improved the quality since the comments were made. The reason of the problem about the darkness of the scene involving Terry-thomas walking the plank and various other secenes on the river at "night" is because they shot the scenes using "day for night" eg filter on the camera lens to make the scenes dark and considering this film was made in the 1950's I can forgive the cameraman!!!
This is a great film and well acted by all,especially Peggy Mount and Joan Sims. I highly recommend this film.
