Peter Sellers stars as Harold Fine, a self-described square--a 35-year-old Los Angeles Lawyer who is not looking forward to middle age and his upcoming wedding. His life changes, however, when he falls in love with Nancy, a free-spirited, innocent, and beautiful young hippie. After Harold and his family enjoy some of her "groovy" brownies, he decides to "drop out" with her and become a hippie too. But can he return to his old life when he discovers that the hippie lifestyle is just a little too independent and irresponsible for his tastes? Written by
The saga of Harold...from dedicated lawyer to dedicated dropout.

said in an interview that one day, Peter Sellers
refused to shoot a scene until a crew member standing off camera changed clothes. The superstitious Sellers claimed the outfit was the "wrong color". Shooting had to stop while they went to wardrobe and got a different color outfit for the crewmember. See more
