Screened March 20–26, 2020

Sellers’ first and last credited foray into feature directing was a little-seen adaptation (also known as I Like Money) of Marcel Pagnol’s play Topaze. In the seriocomic social study, Sellers stars as humble French school teacher Auguste Topaze, whose principles get him fired; after reinventing himself with surprising success as a businessman, his moral compass goes askew. With Herbert Lom, Nadia Gray, Leo McKern, Martita Hunt, John Neville, and Billie Whitelaw.
