Widely considered to be the greatest adult film of all time, Radley Metzger's award-winning The Opening of Misty Beethoven is the apex of porno chic!
In his erotic retelling of George Bernard Shaw's classic play Pygmalion, master director Radley Metzger transplants the action to 1970s New York, Rome, and Paris. We follow noted sexologist Dr. Seymour Love (Jamie Gillis) as he sets himself the challenge of transforming lowly streetwalker Misty Beethoven (Constance Money) into the world's greatest lover. With the help of his beautiful friend Geraldine (Jacqueline Beudant), Love devises an erotic training program with the goal of seeing Misty crowned "Goldenrod Girl" at famed publisher Lawrence Laymans next wild party. Along the way, Misty refines her technique by seducing an impotent artist, bringing three uniformed butlers to climax simultaneously, and dallying with a rainbow-ceramic sex toy in one of the most arousing films ever created.
Filmed in 3 countries on 2 continents with many of the most famous golden-age actors (including Gloria Leonard, Ras Kean, Casey Donovan and Terri Hall), featuring a witty and intelligent screenplay, and shot by award-winningcinematographer Paul Glickman, Misty Beethoven is the golden standard by which all other adult films have been measured.
