3 things about Joe Dante and Jon Davison’s THE MOVIE ORGY

The Movie Orgy [1968]

1. Andy Devine sings “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” accompanied by a mouse named Squeaky, playing a drum, and a cat named Midnight, playing an organ. The original keyboard cat.
2. Abbreviated Teenagers From Outer Space–they land, release a lobster-like creature which is killed by our poisonous atmosphere, then their leader declares, “We will continue our search.”
3. A commercial for “sugar-sparkled” Alpha-Bits cereal.

To be fair, I only watched about 2 hours of this 4+ hour movie–but it’s brilliant. Clearly a precursor to Everything Is Terrible! and every bit as mesmerizing.
