Like with so many nude scene that flew under the radar, most people don’t even realize that we saw Kim Basinger naked in The Door in the Floor. Her nude scene was overshadowed by the incredible full frontal nude scene by Mimi Rogers. Not that that’s surprising. I said when I covered that one that it was absolutely iconic, and I continue to stand by that. So then you have this nude scene from Kim Basinger which is so subtle that even if you’re watching it in high definition, you can wonder whether there really was a nip there or not. I dare not even imagine what you see – or rather, don’t see – on the DVD or an old SDTV stream.
To make it even more confusing, there is a second sex scene in the film where as you’re watching it, you may wonder whether there is or isn’t any visible nudity. That’s not the confusing part. The confusing part is that in the second scene, there definitely are not any naughty bits visible. If you’re more eagle-eyed while watching that scene and determine this, you may retroactively decide that there was no visible nudity in the first scene either. This is where I was at with it, and let me tell you, I am glad that I went over the footage once again to check because you do see full boob, nipple included, in the first sex scene.
So in what context do we see Kim Basinger nude in The Door in the Floor? Short version is she plays a literal MILF that cheats on her husband by having sex with a young man that he’s hired to shine his balls or whatever. Plenty of older-woman-younger-man vibes throughout the film, even if you do only see Kim’s boobs fully once. Other than Mimi Rogers, Elle Fanning is in this film too. Not quite the right time for a nude scene, though, so I’ll remind you that she recently had her nude debut in a great, albeit brief, number of scenes from The Great. Before we get too side-tracked, here’s Kim Basinger nude in The Door in the Floor.
