Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed in New Zealand, Skin Deep is a sharp-eyed look at how ethics evaporate when money flies in the window. A small-town booster is ever on the prowl for means of bringing progress to his sedentary community. His latest plan is to import a big-city masseuse and set up a profitable massage parlor. The city elders are aghast, but they are willing to swallow their shock when the town's economy begins accelerating. This 1978 Skin Deep should not be confused with the 1989 Blake Edwards comedy of the same name.
