From Distribpix's facebook page:

"The Erotic Memoirs of a Male Chauvinist Pig.....(1973). Directed by Ray Hoersch. A seriously accurate example of a hard-core adult feature, that pushes the boundaries of taboo--urination, bondage, rape and bloody copulation!! Georgina Spelvin, Tina Russel, Darby Lloyd Rains, Helen Madigan-scanned in 2k resolution, with solid extras and Official Liner Notes-- this has never had an official home video release and will soon be available on DVD."

No release date noted yet.

I have a one sheet for this but have never seen the movie. Pretty obscure stuff, sounds twisted and I'm looking forward to it.

This cover art image came out some time ago, not sure if it's still what they're going to use or not.

And a one sheet image (the one I have is slightly different, it's white)!

Hmmm...that one that's double-featured with Water Power was yucky with its pee and poop...not sure I need to see other body fluids than in a standard porn. Kind of gross. But I am intrigued and I like the artwork. A pig in a leisure suit is a major selling point for us Mainers.

Todd, it's all faked here.

That's unpossible.

Yup...Sorry to disappoint. The urine was some kind of soda mixture (Georgina Spelvin discusses it in her interview on the disc). And the rest are, well, pretty obviously not real.

It's an excellent film and well worth picking up.

Georgina always comes across as such a nice lady. A class act. Glad to see Distribpix was able to get her for this release.

Nice to see that some extra will be included, unless I'm wrong it wasn't plan to have extra on this release.

I guess that will be release after Barbara Broadcast or much later if the work on Roommates and The Violation of Claudia / Hot Honey is already completed?

That changes things. Now my interest is piqued even more.

The extras will be the trailer and the Georgina interview (just a few minutes as her memories of the film were very few).

PIG will be out long before BARBARA, ROOMMATES, etc. The disc is almost done.

BARBARA and ROOMMATES have been scanned but still need restoration work. The Lustig films still need to be scanned, although commentary tracks have already been recorded for them.

Oh, there's also going to be a liner notes booklet.

Thanks! I was under the impression that all the Radley Metzger's films had to be release before anything else. Anyway I won't complaint for sure as the film looks interesting and a must buy since Tina Russel is in it...

BTW John, some years ago Steven told me about a possible double features set with Every Inch a Lady and Dynamite do you know if it is always a possibility? Dynamite was never released on DVD and this is a very well done production.

The Metzger projects are taking a long time (extras and all) so it's been decided to try and release a couple other things in between them to keep people excited.

And yes, an EVERY INCH/DYNAMITE double feature WILL happen! Commentaries for each have been recorded but they still need to be transferred.

Great I was frighten that it wouldn't happen anymore as Steven never said a word about it in public. I guess the commentaries are with John Amero since Marcia Rivers and Uta Erickson are probably nowhere to be found...

Yes, they are with John. He's an excellent speaker.

John, I am probably jumping the gun here, but what are the chances of "Barbara Broadcast" and "Roommates" getting a blu ray release? I understand that it is impossible financially to release all of Distribpix/Video-X-Pix titles on blu ray. If "The Opening of Misty Beethoven" blu ray sells well, will that mean there will be a greater chance of seeing top of the line classics such as those titles as well as "Through the Looking Glass" and perhaps "Felecia" on blu ray?

Of course, blu releases would be ideal but it will definitely depend on how well MISTY does.

Anyone else get their copy yet? Just read the liners last night, what a strange life the director has lead.

I got mine two weeks ago, didn't watch it yet but I've read the liners. You're right about the director strange life, in fact that would make a very good movie (at least all the good ingredients are present).

I watched it over the weekend. A full review is coming but in short, I liked it. The male lead is a very good actor and Spelvin is also pretty great here. Not a particularly 'sexy' adult movie but definitely an interesting one. I'm curious to hear what others have to say once more people get a chance to see it. It's definitely not a typical 70s porno movie, that's for sure.

I adore this movie. It's a remarkable curiosity.

I just had chance to watch this - and loved it. And to think that 'John Butterworth' was involved in this film AND 'The Naughty Victorians' is an interesting idea...
Fully recommended.

Congratulations to Distribpix for finally making it available!

And a quick word about the excellent liners - great job by Benson Hurst, who has uncovered a great story about the director and writes about it well.

Did I read that correctly? Or is it a typo?
If this is "..Pig"'s first release on home video, how did Robert Rimmer review it in his first volume of "The X-Rated Videotape Guide" [from Quality]?

Of course this is what it means considering it was release on tape one time and in 1978.

Ah..the good old days of VHS where EVERYTHING got a release at some point...
