Although it’s one of his many brilliant performances, Peter Sellers in The Party is not as known as it should be by far. It’s about as simple as films come and it all rests solely on the performance of Sellers as Hrundi V. Bakshi, an Indian extra who accidentally gets invited to a tremendously upscale Hollywood party instead of getting fired, and his clumsy attempts at trying to fit in. Answering the call, Sellers nails every second with ease.
Now comes word that Marco Garibaldi — a dude who directed three episodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers… yeah — is building his own production company called Godfather Entertainment where he’ll make movies for much cheaper than all the other studios ($20 million-ish) and put every cent on the screen. The flagship movie of his endeavor will be a remake of the aforementioned The Party, which he feels he can make for a lot less than say, DreamWorks… because a movie about a dude at a party would require lots and lots of CGI balloons, of course. Silly people.
