Mr. Topaze | Carolina Theatre Virtual Film

September 11

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 am, repeating until September 13, 2020

Retro Film Series presents:
Newly restored from the last surviving 35mm prints, Mr. Topaze is the lone directorial effort from comedy icon Peter Sellers.

Unwilling to sacrifice his principles, Albert Topaze (Peter Sellers), a poor but proud French schoolmaster, loses his job after he refuses to alter the failing grades of one of students. Seizing the opportunity to exploit his well-known honesty, actress Suzy Courtois (Nadia Gray) convinces her lover, the corrupt city council member Castel Benac (Herbert Lom), to hire Topaze as a managing director for one of his shady businesses. But when Topaze learns he is being used, he cunningly turns the tables on Benac and ends up with all the money.

A portion of the proceeds of streams of this film sold through the Carolina Theatre of Durham’s website will benefit the nonprofit that operates the historic venue.
