The Grass Is Greener — On Our Side Of The Street

One of my favorite movies is the old Peter Sellers classic, “Being There.” Sellers plays Chance, an illiterate live-in gardener who, upon the death of his wealthy proprietor, is cast into a real world that he has been totally sheltered from. A comedy of events brings him inside the power circles of U.S. political might, where his literal musings about the coming “growth of the garden in Spring” are misinterpreted as brilliant metaphor for the future of the U.S. economy.
