When we talked to Process Blue archivist Joe Rubin recently on the Mr. Skin blog, he mentioned that his company was partnering with classic adult distributor DistribPix on some exciting projects. Well, we've got an update for you, and it's certainly an exciting one:
DistribPix and Process Blue are wrapping up their restoration of Radley Metzger's The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976), the classic "Pygmalion porn" starring Constance Money (above) as a streetwalker who's transformed into a sex goddess by the very hands-on Dr. Seymour Love (Jamie Gillis). Misty is one of the best (and biggest budget) adult features ever, and DistribPix is giving it an appropriately deluxe 2-disc special edition that includes not only the beautiful HD restoration, but tons of special features, too:
Here's the details, courtesy of DistribPix:
•The Opening of Misty Beethoven – Original Uncut Hot Version, HD transfer-with frame by frame restoration and color correction, 1.85:1 presentation, with 5.1 AUDIO MIX, from original MAG TRACKS and Original MONO

•HD VIDEO FEATURES :
“Remembering Jamie Gillis”- a touching 10 minute tribute to the legend, narrated by Jamie’s best friend, Benson Hurst.
“Desperately Seeking Susan: Constance Found” – a brief introduction to this elusive and legendary icon, and hints as what she may be doing today.
“The Restoration of Misty” – a half hour long journey into the restoration of Misty- includes film lab footage, interviews with the experts, examples of the process, before/after.
“The Outtakes” – an amazing selection of never before seen, silent outtakes from the set of Misty Beethoven, WOW!!
“Behind The Scenes of Misty Beethoven” – by far our most impressive video feature to date, this combines a very large sampling of just about everything one would need to know about the making of Misty. And what makes this such a wonderful feature is that is is done as a documentary, and combines archival footage and photos, with several brand new HD interview conducted specifically for this release. I am talking contributions by famed cinematographer, Paul Glickman, as well as actress,Gloria Leonard and legendary music director, George Craig. It really is impressive and will run approx 45 minutes or longer.
DIstribPix has started a Kickstarter campaign to jump-start a Misty Blu-ray release, so you can help get this XXX classic released in HD, pick up some cool stuff like vintage DistribPix posters and original art by cover artist Anthony Palumbo, and pre-order the Blu-ray all at the same time!
