The Movie Orgy is a 1968 film directed by Joe Dante and produced by Jon Davison.[1] It is a seven-hour-long compilation of film clips, commercials, and film trailers assembled by Dante when he was a college student.

The film, assembled without permission of the clips' owners,[2] toured colleges and repertory cinemas[3] with support from Schlitz beer.[4]

A digital video version, transferred from original 16mm film and trimmed to approximately 4.5 hours, was eventually produced by Dante.
