Peter Sellers Collection - Pink Panther / What's New Pussycat? / The Party / Casino Royale / After The Fox / The World Of Henry Orien £8.75 @ Zavvi
The Pink Panther: Peter Sellers and David Niven are flawless of this riotously funny film about an almost flawless - and quite priceless - diamond, and the lengths people will go to obtain it! Arriving at a posh resort with her precious "panther" - a large gem with the image of a leaping feline inside - sexy Princess Dala (Claudia Cardinale) meets the debonair Sir Charles (Niven). She is unaware, however that Charles, a.k.a "The Phantom", is a professional thief who steals from the rich and gives to... himself! Enter Jacques Clouseau (Sellers), the clumsiest Inspector ever to trip over a case. Can he stop Charles's attempts to relieve the princess of her diamond? Can he even exit a room without breaking off the doorknob? Or will The Phantom steal away the "cat" and leave Clouseau to hold the bag? Co-starring Robert Wagner and Capucine, this laugh-out-loud farce is a hilarious comedy gem!
"What's New Pussycat?": Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole and Woody Allen head up an all-star cast in this wild and zany chapter from the swinging sixties. Michael James (O'Toole), the feature editor of Paris' hottest fashion magazine, finds himself surrounded by beautiful women with troublesome promiscuous tendencies. In an attempt to straighten out his complex love life, he confides in Dr. Fritz Fassbender (Sellers). Unfortunately the doctor is crazier than his patients and entangles them on a roller-coaster ride of lunacy and romance! Woody Allen's debut script is a masterpiece, brimming with witty satire, slapstick and good old-fashioned sex appeal. This hilarious farce has been hailed as one of the greatest comedies in film history.
The Party: You are invited to the hottest, funniest, most outrageous party Hollywood ever threw! Packed with gorgeous models, ravishing starlets, powerful producers - and even a baby elephant - this comic masterpiece evokes near-continuous howling laughter and stars the inimitable comic genius Peter Sellers! When accident-prone Indian actor Hrundi V. Bakshi (Sellers) manages to blow up an expensive Hollywood movie set - just seconds before it's scheduled to be blown up on film - the director calls a studio executive to have the actor placed on the "exclusion list". A clerical error, however, places Bakshi on the "A-list" instead and earns him an invitation to the studio executive's swanky party. Once there, he manages, with nothing but the best intentions, to create disaster!
Casino Royale: Things are looking decidedly bleak for British Intelligence, in both senses of the term. Smersh has begun to sabotage global stability; no less than 11 agents have been lost; and to make matters worse, our greatest secret agent, 007 is languishing in stately retirement. M - together with the heads of the CIA (from Washington D.C.) and the KGB (from the U.S.S.R.) - have only one hope: to bring Sir James Bond (David Niven) out of retirement and into the field. Finding himself pitched against an opposition of fiendish intensity - an army of female agents armed with exploding grouse; a Baccarat-playing illusionist (Orson Welles); and a neurotic megalomaniac (Woody Allen) - Bond launches his brilliant plan... "from now on, all agents will be known as James Bond, including the girls". Baccarat-playing expert, Evelyn Tremble (Peter Sellers), is selected to penetrate the heart of the conspiracy, but first he must attend the James Bond training school. With a twisting, turning plot of almost surreal compilation, and a cast to light up the galaxy, Casino Royale is a quintessential, classic Bond extravaganza.
Also includes After The Fox and The World Of Henry Orient.
