The “Lost” Classic Newly Restored
Starring Peter Sellers
Prepare to laugh, when you step back in time for a Mr Topaze movie night and watch the newly restored 1961 classic film.
When I was a kids, I loved watching the old Pink Panther movies starring Peter Sellers as the hilarious Chief Inspector Clouseau.
Mr. Topaze was released a few years before Pink Panther and was also known as “I Like Money.”
An interesting bit of trivia is that this was the first and only time that Peter Sellers received directorial credit for a movie.
The film has been beautiful restored, so that we can all enjoy it now.
I understand why the comedy was a hit back in the day.
Release Date 10/27/20
Unwilling to sacrifice his principles, Albert Topaze, a poor but proud French schoolmaster, loses his job after he refuses to alter the failing grades of one of his students.
Seizing the opportunity to exploit his well-known honesty, Nadia Gray takes action.
She convinces her lover, the corrupt city council member Castel Benac, to hire Topaze as a managing director for one of his shady businesses.
But when Topaze learns he is being used, he cunningly turns the tables on Benac and makes off with all the money.
