The 2004 film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers contains a brief mention of Duluth. Geoffrey Rush plays the role of the famous actor/comedian Sellers, whose agent Dennis Selinger, played by Henry Goodman, encourages him to broaden his audience in the scene embedded above.
The dialogue goes like this:
Selinger: Blake Edwards is the hottest director in Hollywood right now. Days of Wine and Roses, Breakfast at Tiffany’s … He can get anyone he wants. And, Peter, he wants you! United Artists are putting a lot of weight behind it. It’s going to be very wide, very international release. You may be a big star in Britain, but the folks in Duluth have never heard of you.
Sellers: Then we’re even. I’ve never heard of Duluth.
Selinger: It’s in the United States.
Sellers: Oh. That Duluth.
