Movie Info

This biographical sketch and collection of rarely seen film footage pays tribute to the talent of the great Peter Sellers, chameleonic star of Dr. Strangelove, The Pink Panther, and Being There. Hailed as a comic genius even in his own time, Sellers' continual reinvention of himself kept audiences roaring for 30 years. Behind the scenes, however, personal difficulties and his eccentricity on set (some of his directors suggested that he was a schizophrenic) betrayed the fact that a struggling human being lay behind Sellers' many larger-than-life characters. Featuring rare excerpts of his brilliant early work, alongside interviews with family, friends, and fellow actors, The Unknown Peter Sellers is an essential addition to the collection of any devoted Sellers fan, as well as a fascinating introduction to his remarkable body of work. ~ Sarah Welsh, Rovimore
