'Get 'Em Off' is a 1976 documentary celebrating a hundred years of strip tease, although the centenary seems to have been chosen arbitarily to coincide with the year this smutty little half hour film was made. Disappointing historical accuracy aside, it is highly watchable, with some truly bizarre routines and some really funky library music underscoring the endless bump and grind.
The work of indefatigable documentarist Harold Baim, it has a commentary by saggy old baggy old Hugh Scully, of 'Antiques Roadshow' fame and respected actor Kenneth MacLeod. These two ageing establishment figures are called upon to make mildly lacivious remarks, rather like a perverted Statler and Waldorf. They occasionally pretend to be aroused, causing some mental scarring.
