The Mouse That Roared

One of my favorite movies when I was a kid. Peter Sellers played three roles in the 1959 film The Mouse That Roared. In this story, the Duchy of Grand Fenwick hatches a plot to declare war on the United States, lose, and then reap the benefits of the US rebuilding efforts, like Germany and Japan after World War II. However, Grand Fenwick manages to win the war, which spells economic disaster.

Don't forget the sequel, The Mouse on the Moon, which I enjoyed more than the original, although the crack about the Privy Council in that one still cracks me up.

Yeah, that was good, but it was missing Peter Sellers.
