William Bibbiani Reviews 'The Ghost of Peter Sellers'

In the new documentary "The Ghost of Peter Sellers," director Peter Medak ("The Changeling") looks back at the catastrophic production of his pirate comedy "Ghost in the Noonday Sun." Suffering from weak screenwriting, low budgeting and a star who actively attempted to sabotage the film at every turn, the film was such a monumental failure that it didn't get released until ten years after its completion, and the filmmaker says the experience has haunted him for decades since.

In his review at The Wrap, William Bibbiani describes "The Ghost of Peter Sellers" as "an amusing collection of tragicomic anecdotes," but says the original film's obscurity and Peter Medak's dedication towards vindicating his own role in the production suggests that "the film was made by Medak, for Medak."
