A comedy genius, a hot new director and a 17th Century pirate film. What could possibly go wrong?

Chuck says:

This documentary serves as a fascinating, extended therapy session for director Peter Medak, who recounts the troubled production of his film “Ghost in the Noonday Sun,” a pirate comedy starring Peter Sellers.  The actor’s erratic behavior and mental health issues come to the fore here as his self-destructive antics led Medak to question his talent as well as his sanity.  Archival footage and current interviews with those who were involved in the production 50 years ago provide a fascinating look at how a major film production can go off course, the difficulty of trying to get it back on track and the long-term damage an experience such as this can have.
