I'm not quite sure what was worse, the script, the actors, or the 'wild' part of the movie which was nothing more than viewing too many totally flat chested women being touched by likely small penised men. Slow moving, sophomoric and entirely too long, I hope I can get a buck for it at my yard sale next week.

I am giving "Wild Party" 5 stars for a few reasons. Most significantly is that this is the version that James Ivory had submitted to the studio, which then recut it for distribution through American International.
I remember seeing WP when it was first released, and believe me that was an entirely different movie than is on this DVD. A.I. was known as the distributor that marketed exploitation flicks, so it purchased WP as it was cut to emphasize an orgy sequence.
Ivory is not a sensationalist, if anything his films incorporate sex to advance the story, here the wildness of the party is just a by product of a much richer story.
Raquel, Coco, Bolling and King are all terrific. The wonder of DVD is that this film makes sense, whereas the theatrical version and all the VHS versions do not. This is really an amazing movie that was never released as it was intended. Thumbs up to MGM for releasing this edition.

Raquel Welch in her prime. The movies intention were originally good, however Mrs. Raquel at that time, was programmatic and not easy to work with, yet the movie is worth watching.

Rather dated and over acted, but fun nevertheless to see a Merchant Ivory film at the start of their careers....

This is an early entry from the Merchant Ivory team, and one which was unjustifiably dismissed on its initial release.It's a creative, well filmed and acted period piece set in early Hollywood, loosley based on the Fatty Arbuckle scandal. All the angst, drama, insincerity, drugs and general debauchery is perfectly and vividly captured.The movie features great performances from the entire cast Raquel Welch is execellent, Perry King gorgeous and James Coco tragic.

This DVD restores some of the cut footage such as the infamous orgy scene.

Another plus is the excellent music score.

song called singapore sally and she really camps it up
