TODAY, ' 11, Fir si Monroe, Then Neff as Nude Appearances Take on a 'Trend' By DOB THOMAS HOM,YWOOF'?«V_Thls Could be R trend. First, Marilyn Monroe appears unclothed In a calendar photograph taken In her less successful days. Now HIMeirardc Nell admits that she did a scene in the altogether for a German - made rnovic. Miss Neff, who has been termed Germany's best contribution to the U. S. since Marlene Dietrich, is frank about the whole thing. In this respect, she differs from Uedy Latnarr, who has long been touchy about the birthday - suit bathing scene she did many years ago in "Ecstasy." The Neff nude scene appears in "The Sinner," which she made In Germany about a year ago, "I didn't know about the scene until I had agreed to make the picture," she related. "I harl agreed to do the film because it was such a wonderful part for a woman. I played the daughter of a rich German family which Is impoverished by the war. The girl becomes a woman of the streets. "After a sinful career, she falls in love with an artist. She becomes a mode!. That is when the nude scene lakes place. She poses' for Win, nnd there Is .1 playful tussle in which he drops her in the lake. "When I learned about the scene. 1 was n little hesitant. But I had already signed and the part was too good to pass up. Besides, the scene was not thrown in lor sensationalism; It had a direct bear- Ing on the plot." "I think n dress with a plunging neckline is much more sexy and suggestive than actual nudity," Miss Neff observed. "It Is what Is not seen that stimulates people, not what is seen.
