Mini Bio (1)

Few adult-film performers have had such an auspicious debut in the business as Constance Money did. Her first role was in what is generally considered to be the most critically acclaimed and honored adult film of all time, The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976), a clever takeoff on the George Bernard Shaw play "Pygmalion", which was made into My Fair Lady (1964). She was hailed as the new rising young star of adult films due to several factors, not the least of which was her fresh-scrubbed, girl-next-door appearance, which contrasted with the energy with which she tackled her sexual performances. She followed that film with a good performance in Mary! Mary! (1977). However, after just a few more films (she only made eight altogether) she left the adult-film business. She returned in 1982 and made one more, A Taste of Money (1983), then left the business again, this time for good. When last heard from she was running an air freight business in Alaska. To this day she remains one of the most enigmatic figures in the adult-film industry, a beautiful and talented actress and performer who gave it all up and went out while she was still on top.

Trivia (7)

Radley Metzger, who directed The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976) under his nom de plume Henry Paris, renamed Susan Jensen "Constance Money."

Personal Quotes (3)

My favorite novelist is Jerzy Kosinski. I read his "Painted Bird" right after shooting "Misty Beethoven" [The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976)]. It probably saved my life. I was so depressed after that movie. The book lifted me out of it.
I didn't get paid for [The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976)]. Nor did I sign a release. I didn't have a good attitude and I didn't like Henry Paris ["Misty" director Radley Metzger].
"Misty" [The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976)] is a good movie because it is real. The incidents in the film were happening to me at the time, especially my relationship with Jamie [Jamie Gillis]. Henry Paris [director Radley Metzger] made me that character. He told me I couldn't act, so I fit the part.
