Peter Sellers

Peter Sellers (1925-80) won his first break by ringing a BBC producer and impersonating two stars. He came to fame with the Goons but, wanting more money, repeatedly threatened to walk out. After bewitching Kubrick in Dr Strangelove, for which he won an Oscar nomination, he continued to play multiple parts in many of his films.

 

He will always be remembered with affection for his unforgettable roles in comedy classics The Party (1968) and The Pink Panther series of movies, without which no Christmas TV schedule would be complete.
