Mr Topaze

July 28 - October 11

You can watch Mr Topaze right here, right now

After being unavailable for many years, Peter Sellers’ “lost” comedy and his lone directorial effort has been restored from the only surviving 35mm print.

Sellers stars as Auguste Topaze, a poor but proud schoolteacher. Unwilling to sacrifice his principles, he loses his job after refusing to alter the failing grades of one of students. Seizing the opportunity to exploit Topaze’s well-known honesty, a corrupt city council member attempts to ensnare the unsuspecting schoolteacher in a cunning scheme. Sellers’ future Pink Panther nemesis Herbert Lom co-stars, along with Billie Whitelaw, Leo McKern and Michael Sellers (the director’s son).  1961/97 min

Essential viewing for all Peter Sellers fans. -British Film Institute
