Directed by George Roy Hill


Mastered in HD! Comedy Legend Peter Sellers (The Party, After the Fox), Paula Prentiss (What’s New Pussycat?), Angela Lansbury (Something for Everyone) and Tom Bosley (TV’s Happy Days) are hilarious in The World Of Henry Orient, a funny, charming, lively and imaginative place you'll want to visit again and again. Two starry-eyed schoolgirls spy, stalk and scheme their way into the life of a concert pianist (Sellers) in this wacky piece of inspired lunacy. With half of New York - including a bevy of befuddled cops and one man-hungry mom - in tow, these precocious teens do all they can to keep tabs on their harried hero, turning The World Of Henry Orient entirely upside down. The great George Roy Hill (The Sting, Slap Shot) directed this hilarious comedy with screenplay by Nunnally Johnson (How to Marry a Millionaire, Night People) and his daughter Nora Johnson, based on a novel by Nora Johnson.

Reviews

"...this is a standalone film that is simply a delight to watch and evokes childhood innocence in a direct and heartfelt way Hollywood simply can no longer conjure."

"Awesomely on target without ever trying too hard, HENRY ORIENT soars sweetly along on their small shoulders.  Their casting is a tribute to Hill, an extraordinarily successful director (BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID, THE STING, SLAP SHOT, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP)."
