MILLSTONE TWP., N.J.—Distribpix Inc. is very proud to announce the inaugural offering in their exclusive Henry Paris series which represents definitive editions of the adult films of Radley Metzger. The Private Afternoons Of Pamela Mann, restored in high definition from the original 35mm blow-up negative and completely uncut for the first time ever on DVD, arrives August 22, 2011 in a director-approved two‐disc special edition loaded with an unprecedented amount of supplemental material which presents the film in its proper historical context.
This limited edition is available exclusively through VideoXPix.com and other fine resellers.
The film that Al Goldstein called "the best film of the year" in 1974 tells the story of a private detective named Frank (Eric Edwards) who is hired by Mr. Mann (Alan Marlow) to investigate the infidelities he believes his wife Pamela (Barbara Bourbon) to be involved in. Frank's job takes him on a tour of New York City but also finds him becoming more and more interested in the woman he's being paid to follow.
Made with the same flair and style that director Radley Metzger employed in established softcore classics like Score and The Image, his first adult film The Private Afternoons Of Pamela Mann is erotica for the discerning cinema fan, a perfect blend of arthouse sensibilities and a keen eye for the sensual and the sublime. Featuring a host of top tier talent from the golden age of adult filmmaking, the film also stars Darby Lloyd Rains, Georgina Spelvin, Sonny Landham, Marc Stevens and Jamie Gillis.
In their ongoing quest to preserve the legacy of the golden age of adult movies, Distribpix has made every effort to document and explore the history of this important masterpiece of erotica, sure to appeal to adults of all ages, male and female alike. Metzger's unique brand of erotic cinema has gone on to legendary acclaim from critics and fans alike. By focusing more on story and production values as much as on the sex itself, his filmography stands the test of time as some of the most mature and beautifully made adult motion pictures in history.
