Quotes

Poll taker: Do you think that the fact the vocabulary among the young has diminished is symptomatic of a recession into the self and simple manifestation of a disaffection with traditional modes of communication?
Pamela Mann: Uh, little of both.
Poll taker: Thank you!

Alternate Versions

The film was originally refused a UK cinema certificate in 1976. In October 2005 the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) passed the movie at a R18 (Restricted 18) rating, which can only be supplied in registered sex shops. To be rated at this level the movie required 9 minutes of cuts to "remove scenes showing woman being explicitly sexually assaulted in a manner which eroticises and endorses sexual violence."

The Usual Suspects of pornography.
25 October 1999 | by ultraluvSee all my reviews

When adult films of the '70's made their way back into the mainstream of popular culture, Radley Metzger most definitely holds his regard as the finest adult filmmaker ever. My first encounter with Metzger's work was "The Opening of Misty Beethoven" which, as a boy looking through a friend's parents' videos, was far more than I'd expected. Years later, I was happy to view "The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann," which, aside from the pornographic content, I found totally engrossing. I admit being completely shocked by the surprise ending!

Maybe it's the recent admiration of independent film that has made the acting in Radley's movies seem so much better, but his camera work is unsurpassed in his field. Beautifully shot, well acted smut, which borders on proving itself as "erotica!" Yeah for Radley Metzger!
