    Radley Metzger was an American pioneer filmmaker and a film distributor. He was known for artistic, adult-oriented films that include Camille 2000 in 1969, The Lickerish Quartet in 1970, Score in 1974, and The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann in the same year, The Image in 1975, The Opening of Misty Beethoven in the following year, and Barbara Broadcast in 1977. One of the film reviewers stated that his movies are highly artistic, have gorgeous cinematography, and the other reviewer quoted, it has lavish design and a witty screenplay.

    In 1950, he worked as a film editor and was employed in editing trailers for Janus Films. He was also an associate of Local 771 of the IATSE. His first directorial movie was Dark Odyssey in 1961, and it was favorably reviewed by The New York Times and others.

    Metzger's film in 1977, The Opening of Misty Beethoven, received Best Direction and Best Film for the first Adult Film Association of America Awards and Best Actor for Jamie Gillis. It also won X-Caliber award for Best Direction.

    Metzger's movie project was subject of a retrospective in Boston, Massachusetts in 2001. The following year, his film The Opening of Misty Beethoven won Best Classic, released by the Adult Film Association of America on DVD in 2002.
