Non-Hoosier DVD review "Hero at Large"

If you like superheroes, this is a good film. Nice theme music. Filmed on location in New York. The movie deals with that anyone can be a hero. There is a bit of struggling actor story.

John Ritter is hired to make personal appearances as comic hero Captain Avenger. After foiling a holdup, the public believes him to be the real thing, and he starts to also. Charming comedy about heroism also stars Anne Archer, Kevin McCarthy and Bert Convy. 98 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French; theatrical trailer.

Review: The Party

DENNY MILLER plays a cowboy type actor that becomes friends of the Peter Seller character during a pool game. He is ok as a loud western. The film is a bit slow. Today this would be a Mr. Bean type movie.

The Party [DVD](1968) DVD
Peter Sellers is captured in riotous, Clouseau-esque form as a klutzy Indian movie star who's imported to Hollywood...and manages to systematically trash both his first production and its wrap party!! Gutbuster helmed by Blake Edwards co-stars Claudine Longet, Marge Champion, Gavin MacLeod. 99 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English mono, French mono, Spanish mono; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish; trailer.
