The World of Henry Orient

The World of Henry Orient is a quirky 1964 movie set all over Manhattan. It's about two fourteen year old girls who form a close friendship and develop a crush on a caddish concert pianist (Peter Sellers). They follow him around as he attempts to seduce a married woman, and zaniness ensues. It's a really sweet movie that seems to have nostalgia built right into it. The ending darkens and becomes tender. A fun, satisfying, special movie.

this film is a particular gem, often overlooked, but with amazing performances, both comic and tender--i totally agree with you!
