If you've ever been to a wilder party... you're under arrest.

Hollywood mogul Fred Clutter buck isn't just giving a party, he's giving The Party. Absolutely everyone who's anyone will be there: gorgeous models, ravishing starlets, powerful producers - even a baby elephant! And by mistaken invitation, accident-prone Indian actor Hrundi V. Bakshi (Peter Sellers) will be there, too. He wouldn't miss it for the world… and if you enjoy "side-splitting gags" (Leonard Maltin) and "break-neck action" (Boxoffice), neither should you!

This uproariously funny send-up of tinseltown snobbery pairs the trademark antics of Sellers with shrewd comic timing from director/producer/co-writer (together with Tom and Frank Waldman) Blake Edwards. If you're looking for a good time… come to The Party!

I loved Peter Sellers in this role, and as always he delivered in only a way that he can do. Brilliant! Good clean fun and laughs. I might just watch his Pink Panther movies as well!

I loved the old Peter Sellers movies,and this one is a lot of fun.

We don't seem to get the same sort of humor in the films these days.

classic 60's screwball comedy done in the manner that only Peter Sellars can.He plays a disaster prone Indian movie extra who accidentally gets put on guest list for a Hollywood producer's party.

This was an excellent comedy for its day. It was very entertaining and a fantastic example of Peter Sellers' comic genius.
