The howl of The Party – Steve Franken

I recently read that Steve Franken passed away. I took a few moments to thank him, silently, for the howls of laughter he generated as the drunken waiter in the Peter Sellers film, The Party. Every time I watch the dinner scene, as he staggers around the table with what looks like a Cornish game hen on his platter, I scream with laughter. When he pours the wine through a guest’s long ponytail, I am helpless, making so much noise that the neighbours are probably concerned there is mayhem happening in our house. What a gift he left the world through this performance alone.
I am going to put that DVD in my player this evening, and do my form of homage to the late Steve Franken, with extremely loud, lively, weeping laughter.
