The most iconic film from Metzger’s Henry Paris period puts an erotic twist on Pygmalion. Dr. Seymour Love has a chance run-in with a crass Parisian prostitute and makes a wager that he can turn her into a sophisticated lover. Filmed on location in New York, Paris, and Rome, Misty Beethoven has been hailed as among the finest erotic films ever produced. (Erotic City)
