A simpleminded, sheltered gardener becomes an unlikely trusted advisor to a powerful businessman and an insider in Washington politics.
The bearded man at a filing cabinet in the newsroom, just before Chance's TV appearance.
Chance the Gardener:
Good morning, Louise.
Louise: He's dead, Chance. The old man's dead.
Chance the Gardener: I see.
When Eve enters Chance's room as he is eating breakfast in bed, the napkin beneath his chin changes position back and forth between shots.
Under the end titles of the theatrical release are outtakes of Peter Sellers as Chance recounting the encounter with Abbaz. Sellers breaks character and laughs during each attempt. The lines do not appear in the movie. Certain versions of the film have credits with white text on a black background without the outtakes.
CBS edited 3 minutes from this film for its 1984 network television premiere.
