This has been my favorite movie since I first saw it in 1982, the year I quit smoking tobacco. (There are better dried leaves to smoke.)
Portions of it were filmed at the Biltmore estate,,,,,I should go there some year when the roses are at peak bloom.
This was Peter Sellers' last movie, and I feel that he and his close friend Shirley McLaine blessed us with elegantly focused performances. Seeing it in 1982 was a prime catalyst for gardening eclipsing art as a primary life focus for me.
Year after year after year, these last few mysterious moments bring me to joyful tears. Enjoy, John
