Famous Dinner Scenes – The Party

The Party – 1968 – Peter Sellers
Dinner Scene – Drunk Waiter

The Party, a 1968 comedy directed by Blake Edwards, features a foreign actor, played by Peter Sellers, at odds with Western culture as he accidentally attends a lavish Hollywood dinner party. His ignorance of American customs leads to mistakes and serves as the premise for humorous situations. Interestingly, Sellers plays a small part in this particular scene, where the focus centers around the drunk waiter. The scene is reminiscent of a Jacques Tati film, where surrounding sound, rather than direct dialog, contribute to the mood of the moment.
