    This 1979 satire was Peter Sellers' swan song. His character, Chance, a gardener in his early 50s, is a man of limited horizons: he's totally illiterate, obsessed with television (and oblivious to just about everything else) and, as the film opens, has never set foot outside the grounds of the Washington, D.C., townhouse where he was born and works. Yet when his employer dies and Chance is forced out into the world, he almost instantly becomes---by pure chance---the confidant of a powerful financier, an “adviser” to prominent politicians, and even a potential Presidential contender himself. Eve: Shirley MacLaine. Rand: Melvyn Douglas (Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actor). President Bobby: Jack Warden. Dr. Allenby: Richard Dysart. Scrapinov: Richard Basehart.
