A simpleminded, sheltered gardener becomes an unlikely trusted advisor to a powerful businessman and an insider in Washington politics.
Sellers' youngest child, Victoria, was watching the film with him as a private viewing; when she responded to the film with average enthusiasm, he allegedly poured his soft drink over her.
Chance the Gardener:
Good morning, Louise.
Louise: He's dead, Chance. The old man's dead.
Chance the Gardener: I see.
When Chance touches the "dead" old man's forehead, you can see the old man's chest rise and fall as he breathes.
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.
