Hailed as a genius for his simplistic approach to life, an aging simplistic gardener called Chance (played by Peter Sellers in a perhaps career best performance)  with a childlike naïveté rises, by accident, into the game of politics. The man is soon presented as a possible Presidential candidate although no one knows his true background. A fascinating, funny film from acclaimed director Hal Ashby (who also directed other acclaimed well acted and intelligent human scaled dramas such as Harold and Maude, Coming home & Shampoo).
