Pull “I Love You, Alice B. Toklas” out of your movie collection and pop it in the VHS (sorry, it’s not available on DVD). Now, fast forward to the scene in which Harold (Peter Sellers) tries to take a bath. You probably won’t want the children around as you fast forward through scenes of 60s counter-culture activities. Find the bath scene yet? Good. Notice how Harold’s face contorts as people join him in the bathtub uninvited? See his veins bulging as a small crowd crams into the tiny room? Can you feel his stress and frustration? THAT is exactly what it is like to take a bath over here. No, it’s not usually anyone other than family but we make up for that by having a dog in the room who likes to drop her toys into the bath. Fun, fun, fun!
