A quick post of the week, to pay a special tribute to CJ Laing. Recently, the UNCUT Kitchen Scene from Barbara Broadcast has been digitally restored in HD. If only famed adult legend and historian, Jim Holiday, could see this version. Already considered one of the hottest sex scenes of all time, it will now blow your mind. I have wanted to post some hot pics of CJ for a while, these are scorchers.
We love you CJ.
EXCLUSIVE NEWS: MISTY BEETHOVEN PRINT FOUND FOR SCREENING!!!
The screening of the restored version of The Opening of Misty Beethoven, which is set for tomorrow night at Anthology Film Archives at 9:30pm, will now be an actual screening of a 35 mm print, which is in wonderful condition. The majority of film fans would much rather view a print as opposed to a DVD or BLU RAY, especially in a theater experience/setting. As a matter of fact, I know many who would prefer a beat up print, over a DVD, when it comes to any screening. It is going to be an amazing experience. We are hoping that this last minute news will be more than a surprise and I hope that it brings out a few more.
I will be on hand to introduce the film, along with Process Blue’s Joe Rubin. Joe’s company Process Blue performed the 2 k scan and digital restoration for the entire project. While we will keep our dialog short, we will be there all night long, so please feel free to come over to us and ask any questions or introduce yourself.
Also, we will have limited quantities at discounted pricing of the following:
DVD/BLU RAY/CD SOUNDTRACKS/POSTERS of THE OPENING OF MISTY BEETHOVEN
I hope to see you all tomorrow night!

The Opening of Misty Beethoven 2 DVD Set and Blu Ray are both selling like hotcakes! Both packages are packed with uncut HD transfers, definitive extras, director /actor commentaries, liner notes and collectibles. They are gorgeous and anyone who has a BLU RAY collection really needs to pick this up. It is very limited, and is certainly the only example of a classic adult film ever to be professionally released on BLU RAY ! For those that have not gone BLU, the 2 DVD Collector’s Set is top notch and will blow you away!
After many, many months of research, planning, producing, manufacturing and delays, the Official Motion Picture Soundtrack to The Opening of Misty Beethoven has arrived. It is amazing, to say the least. It is so impressive and quite the jewel of a collectible. The Soundtrack is available at DISTRIBPIX ONLINE STORE or AMAZON.COM.
THE OPENING OF MISTY BEETHOVEN- OFFICIAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK
One of the most sought-after “lost” soundtracks of all time, the music of “The Opening of Misty Beethoven” is now available to collectors for the first time in three and a half decades! Sourced directly from the original stereophonic masters, the music of Misty Beethoven shines like never before. From the hard-rock beats of 1970s London to the work of the Italian masters, Misty Beethoven’s soundtrack features some of the most incredible music ever to accompany an adult film. Each soundtrack comes with 48-pages of behind-the-scenes photographs, musician profiles, and song lyrics, PLUS the incredible story of the years-long battle to finally get the soundtrack a release! But that’s not all! The soundtrack features bonus tracks from each of Radley Metzger’s other adult films: The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann, Naked Came the Stranger, Barbara Broadcast and Maraschino Cherry. With beautiful die-cut packaging and original cover art by Anthony Palumbo, the soundtrack to “The Opening of Misty Beethoven” will be a sought-after collector’s item for years to come. Top it off with a rare interview with the film’s music director, George Craig, and this is the 2012 soundtrack release you cannot afford to miss!
Enjoy the product pics.
As we have been informed, the project is still coming down, it is just a matter of hours right now. A huge blow for many of us, a huge blow. Plus, all because of one absolutely terrible person, more on that another time! LOL.
Well, we are overwhelmed with the support of you guys, without the funding, I am never going to be able to get this project done, and now you guys see what I am up against. It is terrible, I am always fighting the current, I can catch a fucking break.
Anyway, I am upset with Kickstarter.com, because we treated the process and their network with respect and care, and they don’t even think it is appropriate to give us a thorough explanation. Based on other adult projects that have gained funding through Kickstarter, we feel that this is a bias decision, and that is the reason why Kickstarter.com needs to come clean. Or contact me personally, and treat me, the way we treated the process. I am not a criminal.
The backers of our project, are incredible. Overwhelmed, with emails for the past 12 hours, it really is intense. I have now over 64 emails, of people who want to continue with this project, no matter what we do and where we go, like I said, this could be kool. We are going to milk this press and get more than we did before. “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”! We can turn this into something really special.
And I have already come up with more amazing rewards, that will convert anyone on the edge of joining this campaing. It may not have the same huge community feel that KS had, but if the rumors are true about what is going on at Kickstarter.com, than I do not want to be involved with them, in any form. And currently, I am backing projects!
Here are some letters from angry or frustrated Kichstarter.com backers, and some are telling me now, that there emails are being denied by Kickstarter.com and rejected from the servers. Is that possible? Is it me, or are we all starting to get a different vision about KS stands for?
HERE ARE SOME ACTUAL EMAILS FROM LOYAL MISTY BACKERS:
It’s come to my attention that Kickstarter intends to pull the plug on this project:
While I understand and respect Kickstarter has a policy probhibiting adult material, this film definitely falls into a grey area in that regard. Not only is this film considered to be one of the greatest ‘adult’ films ever made, it’s also widely considered to be one of the greatest arthouse films ever made. This isn’t some plotless compilation of explicit scenes but instead a well made, well acted and incredibly artistic film, though indeed one meant for a mature audience.
While it may be easy to make a blanket dismissal of this project based only on the more explicit nature of the movie, keep in mind that Distribpix intends to present the film in its proper historical context. This film WAS part of a movement, it has gone on to become quite influential and is absolutely a picture of historical significance.
I politely request that the powers that be reconsider their decision and let this project continue. This isn’t about ‘dirty movies’ but about film preservation and an attempt to shed some light on the fascinating story behind a very important part of American cinematic pop culture.
Just to let you know that I (and probably everybody else who has pledged so far) will be backing this project regardless of your current predicament. The level of care and attention that you have lavished upon this project puts most major studio efforts to shame, and it must be a real kick to the nuts when some depressed, repressed souls decide to pull the plug on all of your hard work. It is indicative of the way that certain corporate sensibilities manage to convulse and strangle themselves into a public position of moral rectitude when all they are doing is obstructing a genuine attempt to celebrate a genuine milestone in popular cultural history (and perhaps make you a few $ along the way).
Please let me know if there is any information you need if you cannot collect it from Kickstarter. Thanks, and I am very hopeful to have a copy of Misty on Blu-Ray!
Just 5 days into our kickstarter project and we are over 8 thousand dollars. And now, after 105 people have pledged we have been asked to take down the project. We have our suspicions of what happened and for those of you involved, shame on you. This “Misty Beethoven” project is on par with some of the greatest film restorations in the history of modern cinema. In reality, I was fortunate enough to have an in depth conversation the other day with a colleague of mine. He just happens to be doing the 4k scan of Speilberg’s JAWS, and we were totally talking shop. He was amazed at how much work we have done to our film, and he told me that the type of work I am doing, is very similar to what they are doing. Now, we are not Universal and we are not Speilberg, but I will take the compliment, especially from someone like that.
The outpouring of support during the campaign and especially since this news has hit, has been intense. I have had at least 50 people who pledged, email me personally , to let me know several things—- that they are sickened by this news, that they feel terrible for us, and that we had one of the best kick videos and projects. Many let us know they would like to remain as a backer and still be involved with this project, in a huge way. And some of you, have even been gracious enough to increase your pledge levels. I will find a way to thank you.
While we are well aware of the several other venues for this type of fund raising, we are no longer confident or comfortable with having our fans/backers and our campaign messed with any further. Quite frankly, if it was not for a stupid chain of events, the project would still be live on Kickstarter.com. So we have decided to find a way to make this an independent type of project. Our rewards are so amazing, we have been working on some of this stuff for over a year, it is all artisan quality and this merchandise is one of a kind!! So the best way to look at it, is that the KS thing, was a dry run, now we know we have the interest. And when we are back up, we will be sure to have an extra incentive, so that it is worth the hassle of having the backers re-pledge. We know this might not seem like the most legitimate way to raise funds, and it certainly does not have the KS platform and appeal, but I handle credit cards all day long, I take Pay Pal, and I can do this!! Who knows, maybe we have stumbled across a new way of independent project fund raising.
But most importantly, we have raised over 8 thousand dollars, and our goal is 10k, from the looks of it, we would have easily exceeded the $10,000 limit. So with that said, I would love to see you guys re-join the campaign, once we have it formalized and have decided on the best approach. I promise you, that you will not be sorry, you are going to be blown away with this project. My team has put too much into this project, to have anything get in our way, we are determined!
And I want you guys to know, every single one of you that made a pledge, you are now more than just a backer, you are now part of the Distribpix family. Stay Tuned for the latest details ASAP!!
