Kubrick requested screenwriter Terry Southern to record in his natural accent a tape of Kong's lines. After practising with Southern's recording, Sellers got sufficient control of the accent, and started shooting the scenes in the aeroplane.
Between November and FebruarySellers began filming A Shot in the Dark, an adaptation of a French play, L'Idiote by Marcel Achard. Sellers found the part and the director, Anatole Litvak, uninspiring; the producers brought in Blake Edwards to replace Litvak. Together with writer William Peter Blatty, they turned the script into a Clouseau comedy, also adding Herbert Lom as Commissioner Dreyfus and Burt Kwouk as Cato.
During filming, Sellers's relationship with Edwards became strained; the two would often stop speaking to each other during filming, communicating only by the passing of notes.
Sellers's personality was described by others as difficult and demanding, and he often clashed with fellow actors and directors. Upon its release in late JuneBosley Crowther noted the "joyously free and facile way" in which Sellers had developed his comedy technique.
The Pink Panther was released in the UK in January and received a mixed reception from the critics, although Penelope Gilliatt, writing in The Observer, remarked that Sellers had a "flawless sense of mistiming" in a performance that was "one of the most delicate studies in accident-proneness since the silents".
Despite the views of the critics, the film was one of the top ten grossing films of the year. The role earned Sellers a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Motion Picture Musical or Comedy at the 22nd Golden Globe Awards, and for a Best British Actor award at the 18th British Academy Film Awards.
Towards the end of filming, in early FebruarySellers met Britt Ekland, a Swedish actress who had arrived in London to film Guns at Batasi. On 19 Februaryjust ten days after their first meeting, the couple married.
Sellers soon showed signs of insecurity and paranoia; he would become highly anxious and jealous, for example, when Ekland starred opposite attractive men. Shortly after the wedding, Sellers started filming on location in Twentynine Palms, California for Billy Wilder's Kiss Me, Stupid, opposite Dean Martin and Kim Novak.
The relationship between Wilder and Sellers became strained; both had different approaches to work and often clashed as a result. On the night of 5 Aprilprior to having sex with Ekland, Sellers inhaled amyl nitrites poppers as a sexual stimulant in his search for "the ultimate orgasm", and suffered a series of eight heart attacks over the course of three hours as a result.
His illness forced him to withdraw from the filming of Kiss Me, Stupid and he was replaced by Ray Walston. Wilder was unsympathetic about the heart attacks, saying that "you have to have a heart before you can have an attack". After some time recovering, Sellers returned to filming in Octoberplaying King of the Individualists alongside Ekland in A Carol for Another Christmas, a feature-length United Nations special broadcast in the United States on the ABC channel on 28 December Sellers had been concerned that his heart attacks might have caused brain damage and that he would be unable to remember his lines, but he was reassured that his memory and abilities were unimpaired after the experience of filming.
Sellers followed this with the role of the perverted Austrian psychoanalyst Doctor Fritz Fassbender in Clive Donner's What's New Pussycat? The film was the first screenwriting and acting credit for Woody Allen, and featured Sellers in a love triangle. Because of Sellers's poor health, producer Charles K. Sellers became a close friend of Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon, a photographer who was then married to Princess Margaret.
Snowdon shared a love of women, photography, fine wine and fast cars with Sellers; both were also prone to bouts of depression. They spent many weekends together with their wives and went on several holidays on board Sellers's yacht Bobo in Sardinia.
On 20 JanuarySellers and Ekland announced the birth of a daughter, Victoria.
They moved to Rome in May to film After the Fox, an Anglo-Italian production in which they were both to appear. The film was directed by Vittorio De Sica, whose English Sellers struggled to understand. Sellers attempted to have De Sica fired, causing tensions on the set. Sellers also became unhappy with his wife's performance, straining their relationship and triggering open arguments during one of which Sellers threw a chair at Ekland.
Despite these conflicts, the script was praised for its wit. Shortly after leaving Casino Royale, Sellers was appointed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire CBE in honour of his career achievements. The day before the investiture at Buckingham Palace, Sellers and Ekland argued, with Ekland scratching his face in the process; Sellers had a make-up artist cover the marks.
Ekland later reported that although the couple argued, Sellers never hit her. During his next film, The Bobo, which again co-starred Ekland, the couple's marital problems worsened. Three weeks into production in Italy, Sellers told director Robert Parrish to fire his wife, saying "I'm not coming back after lunch if that bitch is on the set".
Ekland later stated that the marriage was "an atrocious sham" at this stage.
In the midst of filming The Bobo, Sellers's mother had a heart attack; Parrish asked Sellers if he wanted to visit her in hospital, but Sellers remained on set. She died within days, without Sellers having seen her. He was deeply affected by her death and remorseful at not having returned to London to see her. Ekland served him with divorce papers shortly afterwards.
The divorce was finalised on 18 Decemberand Sellers's friend Spike Milligan sent Ekland a congratulatory telegram. Upon its release in SeptemberThe Bobo was poorly received. In Sellers starred opposite Ringo Starr in the Joseph McGrath-directed film The Magic Christian.
Sellers portrayed Sir Guy Grand, an eccentric billionaire who plays elaborate practical jokes on people. The critic Irv Slifkin remarked that the film was a reflection of the cynicism of Peter Sellers, describing the film as a "proto-Pythonesque adaption of Terry Southern's semi-free-form short novel", and "one of the strangest films to be shown at a gala premiere for Britain's royal family".
The film, a satire on human nature, was in general viewed negatively by critics. Roger Greenspun of The New York Times believed that the film was of variable quality and summarised it as a "brutal satire". After a cameo appearance in A Day at the Beachand a serious role later in as an aging businessman who seduces Sinead Cusack in Hoffman, Sellers starred in Roy Boulting's There's a Girl in My Soup opposite Goldie Hawn.
According to The Times, the film was a major commercial success and became the seventh most popular film at the British box office in Andrew Spicer, writing for the British Film Institute's Screenonline, considers that although Sellers favoured playing romantic roles, he "was always more successful in parts that sent up his own vanities and pretensions, as with the TV presenter and narcissistic lothario [sic] he played in There's a Girl in My Soup".
The film was seen as a small revival of his career. Sellers's next films, including Rodney Amateau's Where Does It Hurt? Despite these setbacks, Sellers won the Best Actor award at the Tehran Film Festival for his tragi-comedic role as a street performer in Anthony Simmons's The Optimists of Nine Elms.
Fellow comedian and friend Spike Milligan believed that the early s were for Sellers "a period of indifference, and it would appear at one time that his career might have come to a conclusion". This was echoed by Sellers's biographer, Peter Evans, who notes that out of nine films in the period, three were never released and five had flopped, while only There's a Girl in My Soup had been a success. In his private life, he had been seeing the twenty-three-year-old model Miranda Quarry.
The couple married on 24 Augustdespite Sellers's private doubts-expressed to his agent, Dennis Selinger-about his decision to re-marry. On 20 AprilSellers reunited with Milligan and Harry Secombe to record The Last Goon Show of All, which was broadcast on 5 October.
In Maywith his third marriage failing, Sellers went to the theatre to watch Liza Minnelli perform. He became entranced with Minnelli and the couple became engaged three days later, despite Minnelli's current betrothal to Desi Arnaz, Jr. Their relationship lasted a month before breaking up. BySellers's friends were concerned that he was having a nervous breakdown. Directors John and Roy Boulting considered that Sellers was "a deeply troubled man, distrustful, self-absorbed, ultimately self-destructive.
He was the complete contradiction. When he was invited to appear on Michael Parkinson's eponymous chat show inhe withdrew the day before, explaining to Parkinson that "I just can't walk on as myself". When he was told he could come on as someone else, he appeared dressed as a member of the Gestapo.
After a few lines in keeping with his assumed character, he stepped out of the role and settled down and, according to Parkinson himself, "was brilliant, giving the audience an astonishing display of his virtuosity".
InSellers again claimed to have communicated with the long-dead music hall comic Dan Leno, who advised him to return to the role of Clouseau.
InSellers portrayed a "sexually voracious" Queen Victoria in Joseph McGrath's comedic biographical film of the Scottish poet William McGonagall, The Great McGonagall, starring opposite Milligan and Julia Foster.
However, the film was a critical failure, and Sellers's career and life reached an all-time low. As a result, by he agreed to accept salaries of ?, and 10 per cent of the gross to appear in TV productions and advertisements, well below the ?1 million he had once commanded per film. Biographer Michael Starr asserts that Sellers showed enthusiasm towards these roles, although the airline campaign failed commercially. A turning point in Sellers's flailing career came inwhen he teamed up with Blake Edwards to make The Return of the Pink Panther, starring alongside Christopher Plummer, Herbert Lom and Catherine Schell.
The film earned Sellers a nomination for the Best Actor - Musical or Comedy award at the 33rd Golden Globe Awards. Inhe followed it with The Pink Panther Strikes Again.
During the filming from February to Junethe already fraught relationship between Sellers and Blake Edwards had seriously deteriorated. Edwards says of the actor's mental state at the time of The Pink Panther Strikes Again, "If you went to an asylum and you described the first inmate you saw, that's what Peter had become.
He was certifiable. His behaviour was regarded as uchurchinnorthgower.comofessional and childish, and he frequently threw tantrums, often threatening to abandon projects. His difficult behaviour during productions was widely reported and made it more difficult for Sellers to get employment in the industry at a time when he most needed the work.
Despite Sellers's deep personal problems, The Pink Panther Strikes Again was well received critically.
Vincent Canby of The New York Times said of Sellers in the film, "There is, too, something most winningly seedy about Mr. Sellers' Clouseau, a fellow who, when he attempts to tear off his clothes in the heat of passion, gets tangled up in his necktie, and who, when he masquerades-for reasons never gone into-as Quasimodo, overinflates his hump with helium.
In March Sellers began dating actress Lynne Frederick, whom he married on 18 February Biographer Roger Lewis documents that of all of Sellers's wives, Frederick was the most poorly treated; Julian Upton likened it to a boxing match between a heavyweight and a featherweight, a relationship that "oscillated from ardour to hatred, reconciliation and remorse. Sellers returned from his illness to undertake Revenge of the Pink Panther; although it was a commercial success, the critics were tiring of Inspector Clouseau.
Julian Upton expressed the view that the strain behind the scenes began to manifest itself in the sluggish pace of the film, describing it as a "laboured, stunt-heavy hotchpotch of half-baked ideas and rehashed gags". Sellers too had become tired of the role, saying after production, "I've honestly had enough of Clouseau-I've got nothing more to give". Steven Bach, the senior vice-president and head of worldwide productions for United Artists, who worked with Sellers on Revenge of the Pink Panther, considered that Sellers was "deeply unbalanced, if not committable: that was the source of his genius and his truly quite terrifying cts as manipulator and hysteric.
Sellers would claim that he had no personality and was almost unnoticeable, which meant that he "needed a strongly defined character to play.
When told that he was allowed to lighten up, Sellers replied:. InSellers starred alongside Lynne Frederick, Lionel Jeffries and Elke Sommer in Richard Quine's The Prisoner of Zenda. He portrayed three roles, including King Rudolf IV and King Rudolf V-rulers of the fictional small nation of Ruritania-and Syd Frewin, Rudolf V's half-brother. Upon its release in Maythe film was well received; Janet Maslin of The New York Times observed how Sellers divided "his energies between a serious character and a funny one, but that it was his serious performance which was more impressive".
However, Philip French, for The Observer, was unimpressed by the film, describing it as "a mess of porridge" and stating that "Sellers reveals that he cannot draw the line between the sincere and the sentimental".
Later inSellers starred opposite Shirley MacLaine, Melvyn Douglas and Jack Warden in the black comedy Being There as Chance, a simple-minded gardener addicted to watching TV who is regarded as a sage by the rich and powerful. In a BBC interview inSellers had said that more than anything else, he wanted to play the role, and successfully persuaded the author of the book, Jerzy Kosinski, to allow him and director Hal Ashby to make the film, provided Kosinski could write the script.
During filming, to remain in character, Sellers refused most interview requests and kept his distance from the other actors. Sellers considered Chance's walking and voice the character's most important attributes, and in preparing for the role worked alone with a tape recorder or with his wife, and then with Ashby, to perfect the clear enunciation and flat delivery needed to reveal "the childlike mind behind the words".
Sellers described his experience of working on the film as "so humbling, so powerful", and co-star Shirley MacLaine found Sellers "a dream" to work with.
Sorry, that peter sellers naked sorry
Sellers's performance was universally lauded by critics and is considered by critic Danny Smith to be the "crowning triumph of Peter Sellers's remarkable career". Critic Frank Rich wrote that the acting skill required for this sort of role, with a "schismatic personality that Peter had to convey with strenuous vocal and gestural technique A lesser actor would have made the character's mental dysfunction flamboyant and drastic The film earned Sellers a Best Actor award at the 51st National Board of Review Awards; the London Critics Circle Film Awards Special Achievement Award, the Best Actor award at the 45th New York Film Critics Circle Awards; and the Best Actor - Musical or Comedy award at the 37th Golden Globe Awards.
Additionally, Sellers was nominated for the Best Actor award at the 52nd Academy Awards and the Best Actor in a Leading Role award at the 34th British Academy Film Awards. In MarchSellers asked his year-old daughter Victoria what she thought about Being There: she reported later that "I said yes, I thought it was great.
But then I said, 'You looked like a little fat old man'. he went mad. He threw his drink over me and told me to get the next plane home.
Speak this peter sellers naked sorry
I won't tell you what I think of you. It must be obvious. Goodbye, Your Father. Sellers's final performances were a series of advertisements for Barclays Bank. Filmed in April in Ireland, he played Monty Casino, a Jewish con-man.
Four adverts were scheduled, but only three were filmed as Sellers collapsed in Dublin, again with heart problems.
Pity, peter sellers naked pity, that
After two days in care-and against the advice of his doctors-he travelled to the Cannes Film Festival, where Being There was in competition. Sellers was again ill in Cannes, returning to his residence in Gstaad to work on the script for his next project, Romance of the Pink Panther. At the urging of his friends, he made an appointment to undergo an angiogram at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on 30 Julyto see if he was able to undergo open-heart surgery.
Spike Milligan later considered that Sellers's heart condition had lasted for over 15 years and had "made life difficult for him and had a debilitating effect on his personality.
On 21 July Sellers arrived in London from Geneva. He checked into the Dorchester hotel, before visiting Golders Green Crematorium for the first time to see the location of his parents' ashes. He had plans to attend a reunion dinner with his Goon Show partners Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe, scheduled for the evening of 22 July.
On the day of the dinner, Sellers took lunch in his hotel suite and shortly afterwards collapsed from a heart attack.
Absolutely peter sellers naked certainly
He was taken to the Middlesex Hospital, London, and died just after midnight on 24 Julyaged After his death, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer tried to continue with Romance of the Pink Panther and offered the role of Clouseau to Dudley Moore, who turned it down. The studio subsequently returned to Blake Edwards, who was adamant not to recast the character, feeling certain that no one could adequately replace Sellers.
In Edwards released Trail of the Pink Panther, which was composed entirely of deleted scenes from his past three Panther films. The stage play Being Sellers premiered in Australia inthree years after the release of the biography by Roger Lewis, The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.
Inthe book was turned into an HBO film with the same title, starring Geoffrey Rush. The play later transferred to New York in December The Belfast Telegraph notes how the film captured Sellers's "life of drugs, drink, fast cars and lots and lots of beautiful women". Although the film was widely praised by critics, Lord Snowdon and Britt Ekland were highly critical of it; Ekland said, "The film leaves you with the impression that Peter Sellers was essentially a likeable man when in reality he was a monster.
He may have been a brilliant actor, but as a human being he had no saving graces at all". Snowdon disagreed with Ekland's verdict, and with the film, and stated that Sellers "had a light touch, a sense of humour, I can't bear to see him portrayed as somebody who was apparently without either The man on the screen is charmless, humourless and boring-the one thing you could never say about Peter.
New York magazine stated that all of the films starring Sellers as Clouseau showcased his "comedic brilliance". Sellers' friend and Goon Show colleague Spike Milligan said that Sellers "had one of the most glittering comic talents of his age", while English filmmakers John and Roy Boulting noted that he was "the greatest comic genius this country has produced since Charles Chaplin".
Irv Slifkin said that the most prominent albeit ever-changing face in comedies of the s was Sellers who "changed like a chameleon throughout the era, dazzling audiences".
In a poll to find "The Comedian's Comedian", Sellers was voted 14 in the list of the top 20 greatest comedians by fellow comics and comedy insiders. Following the commercial success of What's New Pussycat? Seven screenwriters worked on the project, and filming was chaotic. To make matters worse, according to Ekland, Sellers was "so insecure, he won't trust anyone".
A poor working relationship quickly developed between Sellers and Welles: Sellers eventually demanded that the two should not share the same set. Sellers left the film before his part was complete. A further agent's part was then written for Terence Cooper, to cover Sellers's departure. Although Sellers was reportedly in the process of excluding Frederick from his will a week before he died, she inherited almost his entire estate worth an estimated ?4. Spike Milligan appealed to her on behalf of Sellers's three children, but she refused to increase the amount.
Sellers's only son, Michael, died of a heart attack at 52 during surgery on 24 Julytwenty-six years to the day after his father's death. Peter's parents were variety entertainers William and Agnes Doreen Sellers. Peter married four times and had three children named Victoria, Sarah and Michael.

Peter Sellers is mainly remembered now as Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther films, and for his tour-de-force playing three different characters in Kubrick's Dr Strangelove, but he worked himself into contention for these roles by appearing in some very good British comedies, some of which have been forgotten about, as well as in some straight roles which demonstrate his versatility Peter Sellers was born on September 8, in England (54 years old).
