The Wild Party


1975       Raquel Welch

It is 1929, year of much frivolity in Hollywood.
Poet James Morrison (DAVID DUKES), his 4arynx having been shattered by a bullet, sits in a hospital bed. He is composing a report for the police, telling all he can about the previous night's wild party of silent-screen comedian Jolly Grimm (JAMES COCO) and Jolly's mistress, Queenie (RAQUEL WELCH).
Morrison writes of the relationship of Jolly and
Queenie, of Jolly's grossness and impotence, of
Queenie's voluptuous, flawless beauty. He compares
Jolly's on-screen image with his infantile, irrational
and sometimes pitiable real life conduct.
Since "talking pictures" have come in, Jolly has been losing his boxoffice appeal. So he has produced, using all his savings, a film entitled "Brother Jasper," which he stars in.
The big party Jolly is preparing to give must be a success. He'll show "Brother Jasper" at the party for studio heads Kreutzer (EDDIE LAURENCE) and Murchison (REGIS CORDIC) and for Murchison's wife (DENA DIETRICH). Also for his guests, silent-screen star Kate (TIFFANY BOLLING) and Dale Sword (PERRY KING), Hollywood's newest romantic

star, and for other colorful personalities.
Queenie helps Jolly arrange for all the desired guests to attend, but many agree to do so with reluctance, as they sense that Jolly's real aim is to "sell" them. on "Brother Jasper." The producers, who could put the film into release for Jolly if they
so decided, play particularly hard to get. Queenie tries to take Jolly's mind off the impending evening by dancing seductively for him in their bedroom.
Drinking, dancing, maneuvering and almost every sort of romance are the rule of the night at the party. In Jolly's sumptuous, ornate mansion the revelry spills over into the garden, the library, the bedrooms.
Kate brings Dale, but she can't hold on to him when Quenie goes on the make .
Queenie stops the action when she sings a solo that every eye, male and female, is fascinated by, and every ear, too. Especially those of Dale Sword.
Jolly has "Brother Jasper" projected for all. It is
a broad comedy in which he portrays and satirizes
a wide range of well-known characters. He wins
some laughs, but he doesn't win the financial support of the producers present.
While Queenie is alone romancing Dale - and most of the other guests are involved in some form of intimacy - Jolly befriends a wide-eyed teenager (ANNETTE FERRA). She is an aspiring dancer, and Jolly is kissing her when a stunt man slugs him. Dale intercedes and saves Jolly from a beating.
Jolly goes berserk. He grabs a pistol from his bodyguard (ROYAL DANO) and shoots Queenie and Dale fatally, while also wounding James Morrison, the poet.
The wild party is over, and so is the era of a pleasure-mad, hell-bent Hollywood. .
