The Mouse That Roared:
The Duchy of Grand Fenwick decides that the only way to get out of their economic woes is to declare war on the United States, lose and accept foreign aid. They send an invasion force to New York (armed with longbows) which arrives during a nuclear drill that has cleared the streets. Wandering about to find someone to surrender to, they discover a scientist with an ultimate weapon that can destroy the Earth!
(Dir. Jack Arnold, 1959)
Return Of The Pink Panther:
The world's most hilariously disaster-prone detective is back on the case as Peter Sellers stars in this merry masterpiece of sheer slapstick, sleuthing fun!
When the priceless Pink Panther diamond is stolen yet again, the inimitable Inspector Jacques Clouseau is saved from an unwilling early retirement and sent off to the country of Lugash to investigate. Certain that the heist is the work of a suave jewel thief known as The Phantom, Clouseau unleashes his formidable array of outlandish disguises and preposterous deductive powers in madcap pursuit of his would-be quarry. Tracked by his own, nerve-wracking boss, Clouseau carves a path of comical, crime-busting chaos across all of Europe in this delightfully zany comedy romp.
(Dir. Blake Edwards, 1975)
There's A Girl In My Soup:
Adapted from the long-running London West End comedy, There's A Girl In My Soup stars Peter Sellers as a handsome, 40-year-old TV personality and confirmed bachelor. However, he didn't bargain for a lovely nineteen-year-old American girl named Marion (Goldie Hawn). The plot thickens with liberal helpings of exotic locations in France. Sellers and Hawn create an electric partnership in this romantic comedy from The Boulting Brothers.
(Dir. Roy Boulting, 1970)
The Magic Christian:

The pair embark on a series of practical jokes and elaborate stunts designed to expose the wanton greed that exists in everybody - and prove that everyone has his price.
(Dir. Joseph McGrath, 1969)
