Description
In one of the most brilliant performances of his career, Peter Sellers plays the unforgettable Chance, a middle-aged man who has spent his entire life living in a Washington, D.C. townhouse tending to the wealthy owner's garden. His only contact with the outside world has been the images that he sees on the television. When his benefactor dies, Chance is tossed out into the real world and finds himself the unlikely and unwitting voice of wisdom among the capitol's powerful elite. Shirley MacLaine and Melvin Douglas costar in one of the most acclaimed films of the decade.

Watch it on my laptop
Great story line with a bit of depth to it
Love the bonus material
Wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't great
I've been wanting to add this to my collection for almost twenty years

The piano music is one of a kind
Can't get the piano music out of my head and don't want to

      This movie is as thought provoking as it is wonderfully entertaining. The message: The world exists as you create it. Peter Sellers, as the simple-minded, yet ironically profound Chance, delivers a flawless straight-faced performance.

            Comments about this product:

            Starts slowly, but hang it is worth the wait. This is Sellers' masterpiece. The expected slapstick is always great. However, it's the subtleties which put this one in a class by itself. It demands and deserves comoplete attention. No texts, tweets, or twerks allowed.

              Always a Peter Sellers fan, I was again surprised at his acting range in this kind of comedy/drama. I found it very entertaining. Bought it because in each viewing I find something new, and wanted to preserve some of the vast abilities lost too soon to us.

                    This is a movie that perfectly shows how everyone "hears what they want to hear". Peter Seller plays the role excellently as a man whose world is limited to his garden but it can be perceived as the entire world to others. Take a walk down the lane and make your own memories.
