Peter Sellers & “The Party”

Peter Sellers (English film actor, comedian and singer) died from a heart attack forty years ago, on 24 July 1980. He was 54 years old.

One of his first funny performances is in “The Party”, a 1968 American comedy film.
He appears as painfully polite unknown actor from India who mistakenly receives an invitation to a luxurious Hollywood dinner party. His awkwardness and his ignorance of Western habits make him commit a lot of hilarious mistakes, delicately sabotaging the gathering.
The film is full of funny scenes: one of the most exhilarating is the very beginning, where Sellers  is on a movie set playing a military horn blower, who keeps playing his small trumpet even after being shot several times.

Let’s watch the Indian bugler not dying over and over again.

  1. questo film che ho visto penso 50 anni fa (ricordo persino luogo e ora) mi fece star male dalle risate e ancor oggi alla parola biglia collego se sono tre allora sono triglie! Che trucco in volto il grande Sellers!
