the party

i will always love the party, mostly due to the fact that the phrase ‘birdie num num’ is a running joke in my family. second to peter sellers’ antics, the best thing about this film is the house where all the action goes down. as a kid i thought nothing was more glamorous than a house that had a water running through it (am i right?) … i still kind of think that! i also love the way sellers wanders around, completely out of place – i totally empathise with his party awkwardness… obviously the sixties vibe completely appeals to me as well. haven’t seen the party? do it.

    Wonderful film! We also do “Don’t be bothered by me, I’m merely spectating”.

    This is one of my all-time favourites. I think I’ve watched it at least 20 times. Peter Sellers is a genius.

    This is brilliant! I *love* this movie and all because of the ‘birdie num num’ line… We have laughed about this in my family, growing up… wow – I haven’t thought of this movie in years… thanks for the reminder :D
