THE WILD PARTY (the full, original 108 minute version) starring JAMES COCO, RAQUEL WELCH, PERRY KING, TIFFANY BOLLING, ROYAL DANO and DAVID DUKES

Comedian Jolly Grimm (well played by James Coco) hasn’t made a movie in years. Having had an amazing 27 hits in a row, Grimm is now considered a has-been by the studios, so he uses all his own money to produce, write, direct and star in what he hopes will be his Big Comeback, a comedy/drama about a monk named “Brother Jasper”.

Tense and nervous the day before the Big Party, Grimm takes it out on his live-in girlfriend Queenie, (a spectacular Raquel Welch) who has put up with his manic-depressive actions for years. Once she was his friend and confidante, someone he asked for opinions and counsel; these days she is more of a punching bag. Queenie is far past weary of Grimm’s mood swings and alcoholism, and thinks it may be time to get out before something irreversible happens.

Into this volatile mix is thrown writer James Morrison (David Dukes), who hopes his contribution to “Brother Jasper” will get him into Hollywood screenwriting; the handsome new star Dale Sword (Perry King), whom everyone female (and some male) want to bed; the loyal driver and best friend to Jolly Grimm, onetime Western actor Tex (Royal Dano); several very disinterested studio moguls stopping by Grimm’s mansion on the way to another party the same night at Pickfair (Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks’ home); and a swarm of hangers-on, wannabes, never-weres, freeloaders and general vermin. It would be much more than a WILD PARTY.

James Ivory’s (A ROOM WITH A VIEW, HOWARDS’ END, THE REMAINS OF THE DAY) recreation of the decadence and opulence of the Twenties in Hollywood is magnificent, utilizing the Mission Inn in Riverside, California as the Grimm mansion to great effect.

Along with THE DAY OF THE LOCUST, THE WILD PARTY is an unflinching look at the seamy underside of Hollywood, which really has never gone away.
