Digitally Remastered from the Original 35 MM Film
"Best Erotic Film of All Time"!
Considered by many to be the greatest director of adult films, Henry Paris (aka Radley Metzger) rewrote the history of the genre with his series of five films in the mid 1970's (The Opening Of Misty Beethoven, Naked Came The Stranger, Private Afternoons Of Pamela Mann, and Barbara Broadcast) ‘Maraschino Cherry' - his final swan song to the genre - is a sparkling example of what made him famous; decadent settings, beautiful people, humorous dialogue - and sizzling eroticism of the highest order.

Gloria Leonard runs a pricey house of prostitution, and business is booming. Then her younger sister shows up and announces that she wants to earn her spurs in the world's oldest profession.
Gloria is simply thrilled to have her sister training to take over the family business, and she promptly begins her education. She starts with the simple pleasures her business offers its clients — all the traditional forms of sex. Watching Leslie Bovee, who plays the neophyte hooker, performing her lessons, is what adult film is all about.
Later, she moves on to such lessons as the proper binding and beating techniques for clients who prefer their pleasures with a touch of S&M.; A well-done tribute to bought pleasure in all of its forms.
