His doting mother fabulously played by Joyce Van Fleet confuses him when she unexpectedly enters his office crying about a recently deceased family friend (Ed Foley) who supposedly saved his life but Harold doesn't remember & Harold mistakenly thinks she is referring to his beloved father.
This film is a wonderful vintage time capsule of the 1960's yet it is just as relevant today as it was then. I was very saddened to discover that the actor David Arkin, (who played Sellers' bohemian brother, "Herbie") comitted suicide in 1991. I can't help but feel that the strange optimism which was so strong in Mazursky & Tucker's screenplay alluded Arkin.
That being said......The screeenplay is wonderful & the actors are perfectly suited for their roles. The psychedlic music/score is fantastic. The scene where hippyi-chick Nancy & Harold accidentally get his parents high with Nancy's brownies (thanks to the famous recipe by Toklas NOT Ruebens!!!) is the ultimate munchy laughing scene. I have never laughed so much in unison with film characters as I have in this film. You have to see it to understand the power in this scene. I am totally convinced afer viewing this excellent film that actors are correct - comedy IS more difficult than tragedy.
This movie makes me wonder what was so different about the 60's as right now? I feel the same sentiments as all the main characters in this film feel. The very beautiful Leigh Taylor-Young (Nancy) innocently asks our repressed hero, "Why are you afraid of me?" This in my humble opinion is the seed of the film's story: Why are WE afraid of freedom?
I've come to the conclusion that integrity is what is missing today. This film comically yet very perfectly depicts man's eternal search for his True Self. The last lines in the movie are poignantly uttered by Sellers: I don't know where I'm going & I don't care...I don't care! There's got to be something beautiful out there! There has to be! I just know it!"
A very funny relevant (even in our jaded 21st century), even if vintage (dated) movie about a man seeking the meaning of Self. Simply beautiful!
No multiple roles here for Mr. Sellers, and rarely a moment of slapstick. In fact, it's a serenely subtle performance as Sellers plays an inhibited square lawyer bored with the prospect of spending the rest of his life with his fiancee - a woman who happens to be his secretary. Sellers' character is about as exciting as Darrin Stephens with a hangover. But he's jarred from his straight-laced shell by the appearance of a free-spirited hippie chick who's fond of sitar music and hash brownies.
While hippies had been on the scene for a couple of years by 1968, not too many had been seen in films. But the message, I think, is the key.
A middle-aged, disillusioned man drops out of society to discover himself. He backs out of his wedding, quits his job and lives in the backseat of his car with his young hippie chick (played by the lovely Leigh Taylor-Young). This was a fairly brave stance during an era when society was told to marry, propagate and move to the suburbs.
The keynote moment, and one of the funniest scenes I have seen in a while, happens when Peter Sellers, his fiancee and his parents accidentally sample some hash brownies (made from an old Alice B. Toklas recipe, thus the film's title). This straight-laced crew, tasting drugs for the first time, fall on the floor in fits of laughter, playfully disrobe and eventually decide to play miniature golf. That's right, miniature golf. In some way, a dash of hash has enabled them to loosen up and touch their inner child. Sellers soon discovers the free-spirit path is not for him either, leading to the film's unforgettable final scene.
Paul Mazursky wrote the screenplay to this film, and would soon evolve into one of the greatest film directors no one has ever heard of. Mazursky's resume includes such brilliant works as "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice," "An Unmarried Woman," "Moscow on the Hudson" and "Enemies: A Love Story." "I Love You Alice B. Toklas" is where it began for this uniquely gifted filmmaker, a man whose works consistently document love, life and America's freedoms. Mazursky embraces the hippie movement of the 60s, but more so, embraces spiritual freedom.
As Altamont and the deaths of Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison revealed by 1971, the hippie movement was not the answer. In some ways, Mazursky already knew this. But with a purity of heart, he essentially said we could all learn something from this important philosophical uprising. I can't help but remember a film review of "Woodstock" by Roger Ebert. He profoundly said, "This was a time when people believed they could change the world with music. Today, it is very, very different."
When watching "I Love You Alice B. Toklas," I am transported back to that very, very different time.
