    Synopsis


    The Party
    Peter Sellers plays a bumbling foreigner once again (but this time he's not from France) in this cult-favorite comedy. Hrundi V. Bakshi (Peter Sellers) is an accident-prone actor from India who has come to California, hoping to make a name for himself in Hollywood movies. However, Bakshi quickly makes the wrong impression on producer C.S. Divot (Gavin MacLeod) and studio chief Fred Clutterbuck (J. Edward McKinley) when he accidentally blows up the set for his first film. Clutterbuck jots down Bakshi's name to remind himself to have the actor blacklisted, but he doesn't realize that he's put the name on the guest list for an upcoming party at his home. Bakshi sees the social event as an opportunity to get back in Clutterbuck's good graces, but from the moment he arrives, one thing after another goes wrong, with increasing effect; it doesn't help that he finds himself infatuated with Michele Monet (Claudine Longet), Divot's latest starlet discovery. Director Blake Edwards shot The Party with a minimal script to allow Peter Sellers and the other comic actors greater room for slapstick improvisation, which helps explain why many of the film's most memorable scenes feature little or no dialogue. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Simply hilarious from beginning to end! Love this movie - makes me laugh every time I watch it! I want to watch it every time I want to get in a better mood. I can't remember how many times I have seen it, but every time, it's like the first time. Peter Sellers is a comedic genious! His accent, his mannerisms will make you roar with laughter. I like to also share it with both children and adults. Nobody so far has disliked it. On the contrary they want to make it part of their DVD repertoire. I highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys clean comedy!

      This movie is ok, but not as funny as the Pink Panther movie series. Loved Peter Sellers in the Pink Panthers.

      This movie was overlooked by me for a long time, watched it on TV and found it was a laugh riot from beginning to end.. A must have for any collector.

      Sellers is one of the best, he has this way of making you laugh simply from his body language alone.
