The Peter Sellers' comedy will be crashing the party on Blu-ray in August. You can pre-order the movie now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Kino is preparing 'The Party' for Blu-ray on August 26.
In one of their few non-Clouseau efforts, director Blake Edwards and star Peter Sellers preserve the spirit of the French bumbler in the person of Hrundi V. Bakshi, an accident-prone Indian actor. Brought to Hollywood to play the title role in Son Of Gunga Din, Bakshi destroys the film's most elaborate set with his bungling and is banned from the set by the film's producer. But because of an error by the producer's secretary, Bakshi's name is added to the guest list of his next party, an A-list affair. Shortly after arriving, Bakshi begins accidentally dismantling the producer's carefully staged event, destroying a flower bed, knocking a servant through a bay window, and triggering the lawn sprinklers, soaking his pretentious guests. Sellers is typically brilliant in a film abounding in sidesplitting sight gags with a script by Edwards, Frank Waldman ('The Pink Panther Strikes Again') and his brother Tom Waldman ('Inspector Clouseau').
Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
