Love Steve Franken as the drunk waiter at the dinner! Another great one from Blake Edwards.
Sellers has such a pleased look on his face when dining - if even in a child’s chair. Classic !!
That is a awesome movie due to that fact you can’t stop laughing. I have the DVD and I can say I have no problem watching it again. It is soooo 60’s and the great Peter Seller, he was just amazing hilarious. There are so many scenes that are my favorite.
1) The Dinner scene where the chicken landed on top of the woman hair looking like a tiara.
2) The Drunk Waiter
3) The elephant in the house
4) The house gets filled up with soap foam.
Just never ends.
Also it was so 60;s not just the deco but the song like the song that Claudette Longett (Andy Williams former wife).
Also this movie pokes at the Hollywood Industry.
One Peter Sellers movie that is under the radar, not a comedy, but really shows his ability to act, is Hoffman (1971). It is about a man who is terribly socially isolated from others, who blackmails a woman who works in his office to stay with him for two weeks, while he behaves as a gentleman. She is rather appalled with him, and is very distrustful of his motives, of course.
And when he tries very hard to be gentlemanly, he invariably fouls up, at the moment she had started to warm to him.
The movie itself is rather deep, and except at the beginning and end, pretty well limited to just the two of them.
