  The Party on Blu-ray [read more]
  Birdy num-num?
  Eureka Entertainment to release THE PARTY, Blake Edwards' fish-out-of-water, comedy cult classic starring Peter Sellers, as part of the Eureka Classics range on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on 16 October 2017.

With the massive success of Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Pink Panther cementing his reputation as one of America's finest directors of comedic cinema, Blake Edwards followed them up with The Party, arguably his greatest film, and at the time one of the most experimental films ever produced by a Hollywood studio.

By a twist of fate, the clumsy but good-hearted, aspiring actor Hrundi V. Bakshi (Peter Sellers, The Pink Panther, Dr. Strangelove) is invited to attend Fred "General" Clutterbuck's big party, after having utterly ruined the set of his latest feature film. In this cozy and friendly atmosphere, drinks are flowing, food is in abundance and everybody is in high spirits. But when Bakshi accidentally has his first-ever sip of alcohol and his real identity is finally revealed; only God knows how this party is going to end up.

Serving as a series of set pieces for Sellers' improvisational comedy talents, The Party developed a reputation over the years as a "cult film", but is now highly regarded as one of the best comedies of its era.
