The Bobo [based by scriptwriter David Schwartz on his own play and a novel by Burt Cole] is a clever, sophisticated and charming farce. Peter Sellers is teamed here with Britt Ekland, who plays the most beauteous, capricious, frivolous and difficult femme in all Barcelona.

As a golddigger to stop all gold-digging she is at once endowed with childlike naivete and a witchiness that makes her the focal point of the entire male population. Which, of course, makes all the more beguiling the challenge offered Sellers – a matador who sings, or a singer who is a half-baked torero, take your pick – of possessing her within exactly three days by a stopwatch if he is to receive a week’s enagement at the city’s biggest teatro.

Sellers undertakes a change of pace as the impoverished but self-confident bullfighter from the provinces who arrives in Barcelona determined to make his debut as a singer and meets stubborn opposition from impresario Adolfo Celi.
