BBC recently did a program about the career of Peter Sellers. It contains dozens of extremely rare clips from reel tapes records, and early short films. Great stuff from the 60s too, Dr. Strangelove reciting "A Hard Day's Night". He'd earlier done it as Laurence Olivier doing Richard the Third, also included.

Unfortunately, I only got around to listening today and it's already removed as a download. It's still available here, http://huffduffer.com/hickensian/23047 (currently top link, not my site). That will probably get a cease and desist, so if anyone is interested and can't get it I'll mail the file or set up a private server.

Did you see "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers?" Great HBO movie.

 

He's one of those actors who really doesn't get the appreciation he deserves, even though he gets lots of appreciation.

Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.

I haven't, but it's now on the list. [Image Can Not Be Found]

For much of my life he was that guy in Pink Panther movies. Not my thing. When I saw Strangelove and Being There, sold. Started digging for the old comedy records. Traded them for rent. Bad deal, but it was winter and a roof was important.
