The Party

OK, you’ll need to get past the fact that Peter Sellers is basically doing “blackface” – portraying an actor from India – but I so loved this film when I was a kid, and watching it again now, I’m still in love. At the core is of course the wacky/zany performance by Sellers, but what makes it complete is the fantastic soundtrack by Mancini, the cool sixties vibe from director Blake Edwards, and the amazing set – it pretty much all takes place in one house, during a dinner party. I so love the groove, and oh what I wouldn’t give to spend an evening like that in a place like that – yes, even if it ended up in bubbles.
