Good news and it's only from 1957, not the early 30's. A former pal of mind and business associate said when we were putting together a book trying to list every genre film ever made whatever we do there will be more to find. While technically it is finite, for mortals like us it is infinite. Then I said to him and we are not only talking about films from the thirties but even fairly current ones that got lost in the mad rush of filmmaking and film distribution.

Perhaps they could recover more early Sellers films and instead bury all of his last ones in that same dump.

BEING THERE?

Hopefully not. Likewise not (if only for Mancini's score) THE PRISONER OF ZENDA.

I could never get into "Being There," and I saw it in the theatre as soon as it was released. And when I saw it on cable, I couldn't understand why so many people seemed to like it. For me, it was kind of creepy.

BEING THERE?

No, although that one is overrated IMHO. I watched it once, years ago, and it seemed to me a bit like a Japanese movie meditation transposed to Europe, very aloof.

I meant stuff like The Prisoner of Zenda, The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu & Revenge of the Pink Panther.

Oh my BEING THERE I feel is Peter Sellers greatest film, it is so thought provoking, wonderful, wonderful

Most of the real genius movies of Sellers were made in his early period, clever satires like 'I'm All Right, Jack' where he played a corrupt trade-union bloke, and inspired fun like 'The Ladykillers'. They're all worth a gander.


And of course, who could forget, 'The Case of the Muckinese Battlehorn'? Not a lot of people have seen that.
