Porn about quantity, not quality
I saw this random porn junker theatrically back in the '70s, and it's been revived, for no particular reason, on Vol. 125 of Something Weird's Dragon Art Theatre series.
Title says it all, as the mercifully short (extant print used for video transfer runs a mere 49 minutes) movie merely documents sex acts at a party thrown by cute blonde Tracy/Tina (Alice Bigge/Tracy Walton) and her bearded mate Anthony (R.J. Reynolds). Given latter's nom de film, it's not surprising that there's cigarette smoking at this bash.
Film is very sloppily put together, with several scenes (portions of them, actually) shown out of sequence in the later reels. For example, the troilism action of Tracy/Tina, her MILF housemaid and mustachioed Mike in the kitchen is ladled out in portions, with the maid answering the doorbell fully clothed and other elements screwing up the chronology. This is wall-to-wall sex, no script and completely in the "who cares?" genre.
With ultimately a cast of 15 humping, this is merely an excuse to fill the screen with XXX footage, not really an orgy but more like one of those '60s wife-swapping epics gone wild. Ric Lutze is on hand, and his trademark giggling proves to be catching at one point, as pre-sex everyone starts breaking up in silly fashion.
Dumbest scene has to be the arrival late in the picture of a bleached blonde and a bearded guy named "Mr. & Mrs. Charlie Manson", latter played by Jim Frost.
Perhaps the best element of TINA'S PARTY is a repetitious but catchy funky jazz piano track that spurs on the lagging action.
A framing element at start and finish of Reynolds driving around in his Lincoln is quite cryptic, and used to cue a "highlights" montage at the end (for padding) of previously shown footage, finally drawing to a close as the Lincoln pulls up into tight closeup. Whether Something Weird or the dumb filmmakers added the usual "THE END" title card framed over a still photo of a vagina (idiotic variation on the more relevant bare behind shot) is a moot point.
