The Party

N.p. The Mirisch Corporation, 1968. Vintage borderless photograph from the set of the 1968 film. Blake Edwards, clearly gleeful, directing the soap sud storm at the ending of "The Party."

Edwards' most outrageous collaboration with Peter Sellers, their only collaboration that wasn't a "Pink Panther" film.

Sellers, in a role that today would be considered racially insensitive, plays Hrundi V. Bakshi, an Indian actor who inadvertently and ever-so courteously causes chaos and mayhem at a Hollywood party. Sellers' legendary and hilariously painful performance is assisted by an increasingly drunk waiter (a wonderful performance by Steve Franken), an adorable psychedelic-painted baby elephant, and much more.

10 x 8 inches (26 x 21 cm). Near Fine, some edge wear along bottom.

Rosenbaum 1000.
