Peter Sellers, consumate Actor And Comedian.
- Norman Shepard
In America, there were only two actors, I know of, that expressed the changing times and mores of the 1960's, Dennis Hopper and Peter Sellers. Each Actor, uniquely, and maybe subconsciously, displayed qualites that reflected the upheavel of the times in attitudes toward sex, war, and political activism. Sellers known more for his impeccable comic timing, influenced his audiences with more than laughs, but insightful intellectual understanding and empathy for the common man. In most situations, he was over his head, but as displayed through his characters, a desparate and gentle attempt to try and understand his environment, and the people in it. Peter Sellers will most be remembered for his comical performances, but maybe the true lasting tribute, will be of a man who tried, and succeded.
Peter Sellers Deserves Recognition!
- Dan Bruckner
I have been a fan of Peter Sellers since he appeared in "A Shot in the Dark" in 1963! It's surprising that there are no reviews already of him on this TCM website. I regard his 1975 "Return of the Pink Panther" to be the best of the many sequels! He was one of the most popular movie comedy stars of the 1960s and 1970s! The 1982 film, "Trail of the Pink Panther", was made mainly from out-takes and extra footage of him (he had been dead for over a year). The fact that any movie producer would even try that is a testimony to his great popularity at that time!
