Peter Sellers was credited as actor in the following film.
At the time, he would have been about 42 years old.
The Party DVDThe Party
      1968 | USA | Laughs: 8.8 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 7.6
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A clumsy actor from India causes one disaster after another at a Hollywood big wig's party where he has been invited by mistake. This is close to being a perfect movie. You may grin and chuckle more than you laugh, but you'll probably remember laughing more than you actually did because the movie is just so good. I have watched it every few years for a long long time, and it refuses to age, which is remarkable when you consider that other famous comedies from the 1960s (such as One, Two, Three and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World) are now unwatchable.

Peter Sellers was credited as actor in the following film.
At the time, he would have been about 37 years old.
Pink Panther DVDThe Pink Panther
      1963 | USA | Laughs: 7.8 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 7.2
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A slow start at a ski resort in Italy where Sir Charles plans to steal the Princess's diamond under Inspector Clouseau's eyes. No hard laughter in this first Pink Panther movie (where Clouseau is not yet the main character), but a number of surreal scenes make it a 1960s art classic that you'll be glad to watch again. Clouseau is much more human—and endearing—than the caricature to come in the following installments. (Last viewed: September 2009)

A Shot in the Dark DVDA Shot in the Dark
      1964 | USA | Laughs: 7.7 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 7.6
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

Jacques Clouseau in a movie without the Pink Panther diamond (or the Pink Panther theme music). Since his first film, Clouseau has acquired a silly accent, a servant (Kato), a superior (commissioner Dreyfus), while his erstwhile innocent charm has turned into mild idiocy. Clouseau is convinced that Maria Gambrelli, a cute maid at the Balland residence, is innocent of the murder of Miguel the driver, even though she was found with the murder weapon in her hand. This early Pink Panther may not make you laugh out loud, but it has an enduring charm, thanks in part to magnificent photography of Paris streets in the 1960s and of unlikely settings, in trademark Blake Edwards style. Unfortunately, so memorable it cannot be watched often. (Last viewed: September 2009)

Return of the Pink Panther DVDReturn of the Pink Panther

      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

Twelve years later, a new Sir Charles, and an acrobatic theft of the famous diamond somewhere in a country that could be Iran. Clouseau's accent has thickened. Indeed, the character has become a caricature of the original. And the movie is funnier than the original, though not as classy. With his Clouseau-phobic fixation, Dreyfus is way over the top.

The Ladykillers DVDThe Ladykillers
      1955 | USA | Laughs: 5.0 (Watch Once) | imdb: 7.8
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A mild-mannered gangster (Alec Guinness) rents a room from an elderly lady to plot his next robbery. While he and his accomplices hash out details in the room, they pretend to rehearse for a string quintet. A charming movie that made me smile, but not laugh—surprisingly for a comedy that features Peter Sellers: he was grossly underused by the script, an Alec Guinness vehicle. (Last viewed: June 2010)

I Love You ALice B Toklas DVDI Love You ALice B Toklas
      1968 | USA | Laughs: 5.0 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 6.3
      wikipedia | who was involved?

I have loved this movie for a long time. It doesn't really make me laugh anymore (and I don't recall whether it ever did), but it makes me grin to the point where my jaw muscles are a bit sore. Intrigued by his brother's hippie girlfriend, a Los Angeles lawyer abandons his pinned-up lifestyle for long hair and groovy clothes. But leaving the "square world" doesn't mean you don't have to compete—are you as hip as the next guy? In some ways, this is more a documentary than a work of fiction. One of Peter Sellers' better roles, and that's saying a lot. (Last viewed: Mar 2008 October 2012)

      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

Clouseau is now Chief Inspector of the Sureté. Dreyfus escapes from the madhouse, kidnaps a brilliant scientist and blackmails the superpowers to kill Clouseau for him—or else he will destroy cities! This film goes overboard in the sinister trend to turn Clouseau into an incompetent imbecile. Where is the charm of the absent-minded early character? Crude and cruel. (Last viewed: September 2009)

In this very stupid script, the boss of the French connection sets out to eliminate Clouseau to impress an underworld partner. For this Peter Sellers finale in the Pink Panther series, the script writers continued their deliberate sabotage of the Clouseau character, completing his transformation into a complete moron. To watch out of nostalgia for Sellers, if at all. (Last viewed: September 2009)

A tiny wine-producing country declares war on the United States and, by fluke, wins. A cute movie for fans of Peter Sellers, who plays four of the characters. The only funny bit is in the end credits, when the Columbia Pictures statue takes her place on the pedestal.
