A compilation film designed to evoke nostalgia for the shared entertainment experiences of early baby boomers, "The Movie Orgy" includes clips from television programs and B-movies of the 1950s and 1960s, as well as commercials, music clips, newsreels, blooper outtakes, satiric short films and promotional and government films. The effect is something like a simulation of a lazy Saturday of channel surfing or a long double (or triple) matinee at the movies. The film is primarily structured around extended clips from Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958) and Speed Crazy (1959); as it progresses, segments primarily culled from about a dozen other films and programs are increasingly intercut to create the effect of a single disjointed story in which numerous monsters and assorted social menaces seem to inflict themselves simultaneously on various American cities and towns. This principal focus is occasionally interrupted by commercial breaks and other assorted side features. Written by scgary66

Son of Movie Orgy
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though I never saw the original "Movie Orgy" I, also, remember seeing "Son of Movie Orgy" in 1972.

It was 3 1/2 hours long, and sponsored by Schlitz Beer. I know because I still have the mini-poster advertising it. (I'll have to see if I can upload a scan of this)

2 years later they came out with "Movie Orgy Rides Again" and it, also, was 3 1/2 hours long. I have the mini-poster for it as well.

I'd love to see these again.

I have to believe they were the inspiration for part of what later became the "Night Flight" weekend shows on the USA TV network?
