I'll admit it's been years since I saw it, but I'm positive I can recall Quilty's death scene — it was absolutely hilarious, with Peter Sellers alternately reeling from the bullets, pontificating, and swigging a last mouthful of booze, before finally expiring. Didn't the film start with that? (I never saw the Jeremy Irons remake, so it can't be that.)
