The Opening of Misty Beethoven, Single Version (2014)

Radley Metzger's The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976) is one of the most expensive, glamorous, and exciting adult features ever made. Dr. Love (Jamie Gillis) bets sidekick Geraldine Rich (Jacqueline Beaudant) that he can transform Misty Beethoven (Constance Money) from a lowly Parisian streetwalker into magazine mogul Lawrence Layman's hand-picked symbol of sexual perfection, the Goldenrod Girl. Transporting viewers from New York to Rome to Paris and back, Metzger's masterpiece follows Misty as she brings three men to orgasm simultaneously, seduces an impotent art dealer (Casey Donovan), and pulls off a climactic three-way with Layman and his assistant, Barbara (Gloria Leonard) -- a delightfully "perilous journey" that features the first "pegging" scene ever captured on film. In the end, Metzger adds a final twist to the Pygmalion theme, as Misty turns the tables on her mentor in a final scene of sizzling eroticism.
