The Party

Rated PG 99 minutes 1968

Blake Edwards effortlessly expands the style and format of a silent two-reel comedy into a feature-length celebration of the sight gag (1968), as Indian bit player Peter Sellers, who has just destroyed a remake of Gunga Din, finds himself at an exclusive party at the Hollywood home of his producer. There are elephants, people falling into swimming pools, and mountains of soapsuds, but somehow the image that lingers in my mind is Sellers feeding "birdie num-nums" to a parrot.
