  • Movie for a Sunday afternoon: "The Party"(1968)

    You Tube ^ | 1968 | Blake Edwards
    Today being New Year's Eve Eve so to speak is the inspiration for this Sunday's feature. The triumvirate of Peter Sellers, Blake Edwards and Henry Mancini's only non-Inspector Clouseau comedy. It basically concerns a blacklisted Indian actor who gets accidentally invited to a swank Hollywood party and the ensuing chaos that occurs. It's a very loosely structured film but makes for an amusing time capsule of 1968 Hollywood. Worth watching if you're a fan of Sellers, Edwards and/or Mancini.

    Real good take - and presentation - on the Wellstone memorial and the snub of Cheney. Does not come right out and say it, but the inference is that the Wellstone family new it would be a partisan event.Anyhow, worth a look. The pics go along with it so would not do it justice to try and just post the text. She's had a couple of other good columns that you can see in the archives. Link to Betty's Mailbox here
