Summary
Peter Sellers was one of the most gifted British comic actors of his time, perfectly moving from costume to costume and accent to accent in a series of films that ranged from brilliant to awful. Despite his brilliance as an actor, Sellers led a deeply disturbing personal life. The actor is best remembered as Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther movies. Despite his Hollywood success, Peter Sellers' comic virtuosity belied a troubled private life
