(1979, Hal Ashby) “I like to watch.” Suddenly evicted from his life-long residence, Peter Sellers’ sheltered, TV-addicted simpleton Chauncey Gardiner emerges reluctantly into the world and finds himself misinterpreted and celebrated as a sage-like pundit by President Jack Warden, dying industrialist Melvyn Douglas and his turned-on wife Shirley MacLaine. Sellers’ Oscar-nominated performance was the most acclaimed of his career. 35mm. Approx. 130 min.
