The Bobo (1967) is an entertaining and light-hearted comedy directed by Robert Parrish and starring Peter Sellers, Britt Ekland, and Rossano Brazzi. The movie is set in Madrid and revolves around the character of Juan Bautista, or "Bobo" as he is commonly known, who is played by Peter Sellers. Bobo is an unsuccessful and unskilled bullfighter who dreams of becoming famous and wealthy.

Bobo's luck seems to change when he meets Nancy, a beautiful and wealthy woman played by Britt Ekland, who becomes infatuated with him. Nancy promises to make Bobo a star if he can win a bullfight against famed matador El Niño, played by Rossano Brazzi. However, things take a hilarious turn when Bobo's attempts to become a successful bullfighter keep failing.

As the story progresses, Bobo's desperation to impress Nancy and win the bullfight leads him into a series of comic mishaps and misunderstandings.

Meanwhile, El Niño, who is also in love with Nancy, plots to sabotage Bobo's chances of winning the bullfight.

Peter Sellers, in particular, is in top form as he portrays the bumbling and endearing Bobo with his trademark physical comedy and impeccable timing. He steals every scene he is in and delivers many laugh-out-loud moments.
