The Opening of Misty Beethoven
Arrogant sexologist Dr. Seymour Love (Jamie Gillis) bets a globetrotting friend that he can transform lowly prostitute Misty Beethoven (Constance Money) into a classy, world-famous courtesan. Writer-director Radley Metzger does likewise with this film, elevating hardcore pornography into a stylish masterpiece that is similarly easy to fall in love with. Long regarded the greatest adult film ever made, this sexy, funny “porno chic” version of George Bernard Shaw’s classic Pygmalion boasts a new 2K restoration. (2K DCP presentation)
