What I love about this movie is how it's so thoroughly devoid of plot. And that's a good thing. It's perfect as a fun poke at "the establishment" of the 60's. Peter Sellers is wonderful, as always. He even manages to play an Indian (not American) without any racist overtones. (Could you say that of Ben Kingsley, the imperialist, portraying Gandhi?)
Here's what happens. Sellers plays a two-bit extra in a Hollywood war epic. He manages to piss the fatcat producer off by over-dramatizing his dying scene, blatting a trumpet incessantly. The producer fires him, but Sellers manages to find out about a party being thrown at his house. He shows up, wackiness ensues, tripped-out pre-hippy teenagers show up with a painted elephant, the house is trashed. That's it!
