Being There author Jerzy Kosinski got a telegram from the book's lead character Chance the Gardener: "Available in my garden or outside of it." Kosinski dialed the accompanying phone number and Peter Sellers answered. The result was Sellers' indelible performance (scoring National Board of Review and Golden Globe Best Actor Awards and an Academy Award nomination*) in this modern comedy classic. Isolated all his life in a Washington, DC, townhouse, Chance knows only what hes seen on TV. Cast into the world, he stumbles into the world of power brokers (including Melvyn Douglas in his second Oscar-winning* role) eager for "sage wisdom." You'll like to watch.
