Product Notes

BEING THERE is based on Jerzy Kosinski's short comic novel about a simpleton, Chance (Peter Sellers), raised in isolation whose only education came from watching TV. When he's forced out of the house where he worked as a gardener by the death of the wealthy recluse who raised him from infancy, he's fortuitously struck by a limousine carrying Eve Rand (Shirley MacLaine), the wife of a wealthy industrialist. He's mistaken, because of his well-tailored suits, for a man of means and taken to dinner with her husband, Ben Rand (Melvyn Douglas). There, as Chauncy Gardner, his blank affect is taken for seriousness and his literal pronouncements about gardening for metaphoric economic predictions. Starring Peter Sellers, Jack Warden, Shirley MacLaine, Richard Basehart, Richard Dysart, Melvyn Douglas Director Hal Ashby Special Features: Full Frame - 1.33 Audio: (unspecified) English Additional Release Material: Featurette: Illeana Douglas.
