An aging silent movie comic star tries for a comeback by staging a wild party that turns into a sexual free-for-all. The comic ends up killing his mistress and her latest boyfriend. Written by
The part played by James Coco is partly inspired by the silent-film star Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle who had been accused of raping and accidentally killing bit player Virginia Rappe during a party he threw on Labor Day weekend of 1921. Coco's role was inspired by Arbuckle's work. But the movie had nothing to do with the Arbuckle/Rappe case. See more »

Did you put her in your pictures, Mr. Grimm?
Nah. But I took care of her, Nadine. Real good care.

The Wild Party is probably based on several wild parties and scandals which took place during Hollywood's silent era when movie stars could do almost anything they wanted behind closed doors without having to worry too much of exposure as there were no real tabloid magazines at the time. James Coco plays a washed-up, silent movie comic who throws a wild party at his home, thinking it will save his career but doesn't count on the extent of depravity of some of his guests. At times, the film is highly realistic and makes you wonder about current Hollywood parties and what really goes on between co-stars. The film has a great 1920's look and the music also adds to the feel. The film is hard to define. It's sort of a historical drama, crossed with black comedy but a pretty good one at that.
