Watching the movie Hawaii (1966) for the first time, I discovered that it had nudity among the young Hawaiian women swimming out into the bay to greet the arriving boats of Christian missionaries. The only nudity was the baring of breasts.  While it is surprising that this movie had such nudity for its time, consider that 46 years later we have (or should have) evolved significantly more, but the movie is being shown on WETA (Washington DC public television) with blurred breasts and some obvious scene cuts.

Why can PBS allow National Geographic to show the bouncing breasts of African women but not the naturally unclothed Hawaiians of that time?

One of the better quotes in the movie was the missionary to a native who was teaching a class:

How dare you compare a bundle of myths to the holy scriptures?
