USA The Opening of Misty Beethoven (Radley Metzger / Henry Paris)

Time to unearth this:

Some of you might know the films of Radley Metzger that we have reviewed here. You may also be aware that Metzger directed several hardcore pictures under the name "Henry Paris" in the 1970s and 80s. Arguably, the most famous of these is The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976) which Metzger based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion.

While Metzger's softcore titles have been distributed by companies like Cult Epics and Synapse, the distribution of his Henry Paris titles falls to Distribxpix, a company that specializes in vintage erotica (and other films too--notably, they provided the source for Brian De Palma's Murder a la Mod, which Criterion included on their release of De Palma's Blow Out). Thus far, they have released special edition DVD sets of other Henry Paris titles, all of which were mastered in high definition, and have had some great extras and commentaries.

The company is aiming, however, for The Opening of Misty Beethoven to come out on Blu-ray:

Quote:
If funded, the dual-layer Blu-ray will contain 4-5 hours of all-HD footage, including both cuts of the film (the traditional explicit "hard" cut and the less explicit "soft" cut with additional footage), director commentary, a Behind-the-Scenes documentary, cast and crew interviews, and much more!
The company has put up a donation page to get funding to bring the film out on the format, being clear that the film will definitely be released on special edition DVD no matter what. Steven Morowitz, the owner of Distribxpix, has included a video presentation that details the features on the release, and outlines what specific backers will receive. It also includes several safe-for-work clips from the newly-restored film.

Obviously, I think it would be great to have the film and the presentation in 1080p, and I hope some of you will help make this happen.

As of this re-post, the goal amount of US $10,000 has already been met and exceeded.

Note: Please ensure this thread conforms to our site guidelines and is safe for work.

Well, the drive is now technically over (though it looks like you can still pledge if you wish) and the new total is $13,762.22 from 169 backers.

Now, the wait begins...

Have you received yours? I'm still waiting. It's slightly annoying that people are already getting it from Diabolik before we get it from Project Misty.

This needs to be added to the database as well.

Please help me acquire these Scream Factory slips (in OCD Mint condition):
Cockneys Vs. Zombies,
The Howling, Phantasm II, The Fog, Prince Of Darkness, The Sopranos Complete Collection

The above is from my copy.

As for the database, I doubt we will add it, since the distributor is basically a hardcore label, but this title I thought had merit here, not only because it was a well-crafted Blu-ray, but also because it belongs to a select group of more mainstream adult titles, and because its director has a number of other titles already on Blu-ray, which we have reviewed.

i don't think it's right to not have it on here. Just because the label releases other titles that are straight up porn. If Score is on here, Misty should be as well. The title definitely has merit and to an extent, I would find it a weakness of this site if they wouldn't allow the inclusion. My 2cents.

Just like I do.... A movie is a movie. Is it a blu-ray database or a "think of the children" database? Is it an religious censorship board database? If something is on blu-ray it must be in it, this is certainly a more "worthy" blu-ray than the one with a bunch of dogs playing together...

Incredible to not see a real release included when the database include film that will be never release... kind of idiotic if you ask me.

I agree.

I'm also not advocating adding Blowjobs 12 or some such title. This one has merit.

Plus, it's a real debatable area. We include Score or the DVD of Thriller: A Cruel Picture with it's hardcore inserts, but this doesn't make it?

Neither am I. I'm a big collector of vintage adult movies and I wouldn't let something like that touching my collection. What I mean is that a difference exist between an adult film (shown in real movie theatre with a plot, acting, etc.) and jerk off garbage materials.

At worst, you create a restricted area for them if you don't want the younger eyes to see those movie.

I would love an adukts only section and the ability to add adult titles to your collection. I collect alot of the high-quality adult titles on blu-ray and I collect the Parodies too because they are actually kinda funny

For the time being, that appears to be the case.

Thanks. I'm trying to decide if I want this or not...I've loved his other films released on blu-ray, but I'm sure this is very different (haven't seen it). The special nature of the package is appealing, but considering the price...I'm thinking it over.

..and to add on to the discussion, I also believe these titles should be included on this site.

You can order it via the Distribpix store at Amazon and Diabolik DVD had the film in stock too.

I just got my DVD and blu-ray from Distribpix today. Luckily it turned out to be an excellent release. According to the restoration featurette there has been absolutely NO NOISE REDUCTION applied to the transfer
