I am absolutely blown away by the love and care that DistribPix put into their restoration of THE OPENING OF MISTY BEETHOVEN. The aspect ratio has been restored, so that you are seeing the film as you would have seen it in the theatre. And the colors, dialog and music all look and sound the best that they possibly could. The extras are nonpariel -- you get featurettes on the actors, a behind-the-scenes documentary, the complete story of the music used in the film (without equal in the annals of adult cinema), deleted scenes and much more. If you've only seen the subpar DVD made from a VHS tape, you owe it to yourself to see the film as "Henry Paris" intended. And while you're at it, don't forget to pick up a copy of the stupendous soundtrack CD!

The Opening of Misty Beethoven is widely recognised as the greatest porno film of all time, at least among those who care about the film aspects and not just the sex. It has an entertaining plot suitable for a porno, wonderful sets, a witty script gorgeous actors and actresses and is topped off by a great soundtrack. Not to forget about the sex: two scenes are really hot and the others all add to the overall experience. Distribipix's Blu-ray package truly does justice to the film: excellent transfer and superb special features including two versions of the film (hard and soft) with two separate commentaries. Fans are well rewarded and anyone new to the movie will be instantly enraptured by it.

The Opening of Misty Beethoven(1976) is a cult classic of the 1970's Porno Chic genre. It's a loose remake of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. It stars Jamie Gillis and Constance Money. It has good camerawork, good production values, and some well chosen stock music cues. Distribpix did a good job restoring the film and packing the DVD and Blu Ray's with extra features. The soft core version of The Opening of Misty Beethoven is also an extra. Two deleted scenes from Misty Beethoven were used as filler in Barbara Broadcast(1977) and Maraschino Cherry(1978). The Opening of Misty Beethoven is a classic adults only film from Henry Paris.

It is a miracle what 12 weeks of editing can do for a film! "Misty Beethoven" is widely considered the best porn movie ever made, and I can only agree. It has class, it has style, and it is very well acted - especially by Jamie Gillis - and directed. It is the pinnacle of the brief moment in time known as 'porn chic'. Everyone is glamorous, money is no object, and the sex is plentiful. Most memorable are the many montage sections in the film, something I have never seen in another adult motion picture, and certainly not done with the style and skill as "Misty Beethoven'.
Anything by Radley Metzger / Henry Paris is worth searching out, as he was the one true auteur of porn, but this film is the best of the best. Additionally, no expense was spared in doing a complete audio / video restoration, with tons of bonus features and even a commentary by Mr. Metzger. It looks great, it has great packaging and cover art, and it is perhaps the one great porn film. A must buy, if you are interested in that kind of thing.

'The Opening of Misty Beethoven' (which I have just watched for the first time) is considered by some (or many) to be the greatest adults-only movie ever made. I'd have to watch a LOT more to confidently agree or disagree but I can say that I liked it very much! There is a story (which doesn't come across as a necessary evil) and would be extremely watchable in either the soft or hard core version, both of which are included on this Blu-ray. It's really quite funny, too, with plenty of jokes and sight gags, all of which the performers deliver with ease and aplomb ...except for one lady in one of the aeroplane scenes, but she's pretty and it's only one line, hehe. The music is appropriately whimsical and sexy by turns, and I now want the soundtrack!

This Blu-ray release has clearly been a labour of love for the producers, from the careful restoration and transfer of the movie to the packaging. If you are interested in this movie or this period in adults-only entertainment, I think you will not regret buying this Blu-ray. The movie itself is fully worth the money, but there are also some interesting and informative special features (many in high definition). Of course, your primary reason for buying will be to enjoy watching some really good looking people making out! ;)

It doesn't really have a great story line, but the music and Misty are great. It has some sex shots that I have not seen in orther movies and some people may not like them.

Very nice representation of one of Radley Metzger's porno chic flicks. A very funny movie for the open minded viewer.

Pretty entertaining movie. Almost an R rating by today's standards. Constance money is the star but she has very limited nude scenes.
