Not many sexploitation films can be described accurately as historically important. But Russ Meyer's The Immoral Mr. Teas is unquestionably one of those movies. It revolutionized, for better or worse, the adult film industry. Before The Immoral Mr. Teas, exploitation filmmakers delivered nudity either by wrapping their productions in feigned morality (as in the drug scare movies of the '30s) or by adopting a faux documentary format (as in nudist films). The Immoral Mr. Teas helped changed that environment. It completely rejected moralizing and it didn't pretend to depict nudity as a lifestyle. The Immoral Mr. Teas was quite simply about ogling naked women. The era of the nudie-cuties was born.
