Really, I never thought it would come to this.

Really, I never thought it would come to this.



Never! I mean, that's disgusting.

It's revolting.

And it's a crime against nature!

I don't believe it.

And with a complete stranger.

Really, how could he?



But isn't that your wife cheating on you?

Of course not!

He's the one that's being unfaithful.

But how can you be sure?

I recognize him!

Yes, but I didn't get his face.

His face? I haven't seen his face in six months.

Never send a girl to do a man's job.

Well, I've got to be off.

I have to be in the office of Mr...

I almost forgot. In my business-- no names.

Well, I have one for her.

Well, good-bye.

I'm really sorry I couldn't have brought you better


The place is bugged.

Can I help you, sir?

My card.

Oh, yes, Mr. Mann is expecting you.

You can go right in.

Thank you.

That's disgusting.

I like the book idea on the Mercedes Benz.

I like the book idea on the Mercedes Benz.

If the new Mercedes is anything like the old one

in terms of durability and maintenance,

in terms of durability and maintenance,

we can take your suggestion and call the book

Future Schlock.

And as to your project,

I've looked over the research and there's nothing

to indicate that Father Flanagan

ever wrote a gay novel called

'There's No Such Thing As A Bad Boy.'



Please, sit down.

Thank you.

Now, Frank. You don't mind if I call you Frank?

Be my guest.

Well, to come directly to the point,

it's my anniversary.


Thank you.

But that's not the point.

The point is:
I'm married--

and I'm going to L.A. in the morning.

And, well... I can speak freely to you?


It's my wife, Pamela.

I mean, I'm not sure.

I'd like you to, well...

I mean, I'd like you to sort of check up on her.

Well, you've come to the right man.

I'm one of the best surveillance men in the


How do you come by a profession like that?

Hereditary. It's in my family.

I'm third generation.


No... compulsive voyeurs.

But that's pathological illness.

Well, we prefer the more fun-loving term:

Peeping Tom.

Naturally, I plan to document everything

I tell you with film.

How do you get the film developed so quickly?

Oh, it's not hard.

For the past ten years, motion picture emulsions

have been developed and refined to the point

where they need very little light

and couple that with the ultra-sophisticated

developers and sonic printers,

high speed processes...

What does all that mean?

I have a drug store that gets it in and out

for me in a hurry.

But you were telling me about your wife.

Yes, I'm not sure Pamela's fooling around, but

she does so many things in the course of a day.

She combines ritual and spontaneity

She combines ritual and spontaneity

in the most perfect and exciting way.

She does social work in the slums and ghettos.

She enjoys solitude, like a walk in the park

and she's at home in a crowd.

She can go off by herself and read

but she gets along with people.

She's political-- yet a strong individual.

For instance, as soon as she wakes up,

she does her morning exercises.

She tells me it's to start her heart.

Then, the make-up.

Then there's breakfast.

And the day begins to take shape.

Do you think the welfare state is still viable

considering the inability up to the present

of the system to reconcile the isolation of the

poor with the assimilation into the system of

a relatively well-to-do hierarchy of government

administrators, corporate functionaries and

executives and the other white-collar elite who

Radley Metzger

Radley Metzger (also known as Radley Henry Metzger, Radley H. Metzger and by the pseudonyms, "Jake Barnes", "Erich Farina" and "Henry Paris") (January 21, 1929 – March 31, 2017) was an American pioneering filmmaker and film distributor, most noted for popular artistic, adult-oriented films, including Camille 2000 (1969), The Lickerish Quartet (1970), Score (1974), The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann (1974), The Image (1975) and The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976). According to one film reviewer, Metzger's films, including those made during the Golden Age of Porn (1969–1984), are noted for their "lavish design, witty screenplays, and a penchant for the unusual camera angle". Another reviewer noted that his films were "highly artistic — and often cerebral ... and often featured gorgeous cinematography". Film and audio works by Metzger have been added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. more…
