Having lived his life as the gardener on a millionaire’s estate, Chance (Peter Sellers) knows of the real world only what he has seen on TV. When his benefactor dies, Chance walks aimlessly into the streets of Washington D.C., where he is struck by a car owned by wealthy Eve Rand (Shirley MacLaine). Identifying himself, the confused man mutters “Chance … gardener,” which Eve takes to be “Chauncey Gardiner.” Eve takes him to her home to convalesce, and because Chance is so well-dressed and well-groomed, everyone in her orbit assumes that he must be a man of profound intelligence.

The arts council is also featuring selections from the permanent collection through Nov. 14 in the E. L. Wiegand Gallery & Kirk Robertson Galleries.
