    Murder by Death

    Anyone else like this movie as much as I do? It might be one of my favorite comedies. Peter Sellers as Inspector Wang is just fantastic. I love the constantly off-the-wall, slightly irreverent banter.

    Oh goodness I saw that years ago. The seventies were a paradise for murder mystery lovers.

    I enjoyed it. Peter Sellers and Peter Falk in the same movie is great. I wasn't wild about the ending, though.
    Middle-of-the-road swing voter. Feel free to sway my opinion.

    Inspector Wang? It's been too long since I saw it - was that a take off of Mr Wong? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Wong,_Detective

    I'm not sure...AFAIK it was kind of a riff on Charlie Chan, at least. But maybe Mr. Wong too.
