The Party

London: United Artists, 1969. Vintage borderless photograph of Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers on the set of the 1968 film, from the 1969 UK release of the film. British United Artists snipe and provenance stamp of film scholar and author "Jean-Pierre Berthome" on verso.

Edwards' most outrageous collaboration with Sellers, the only one 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. Faint creasing, else Near Fine.

Rosenbaum 1000.
