Synopsis by Mark Deming
With The Immoral Mr. Teas, Russ Meyer reshaped the adult film industry (such as it was in 1959). In a genre that ran to documentaries about nudist volleyball tournaments and shame-based soap operas about the dangers of VD, infidelity, and teen sex, The Immoral Mr. Teas was a colorful, well-photographed, breezily witty romp that suggested a gag cartoon from Playboy sprung to life. Mr. Teas (Bill Teas), a delivery man working for a dentist, gets his own teeth worked on, and, after emerging from the anesthetic, discovers that every woman who crosses his path appears to be naked. Mr. Teas find this disconcerting until he learns to relax and enjoy the passing parade. Tame by post-'60s standards, The Immoral Mr. Teas is still amusing for its easygoing charm and poke-in-the-ribs humor; Meyer single-handedly launched the "nudie cutie" boom of the early 1960s and began the most interesting career in American sex films.
