I like him a lot. I have seen the first Pink Panther, The Party, Dr Strangelove, Being There and The Ladykillers. Maybe more. Being There is incredibly touching whereas PP and Ladykillers are hilarious. But I love The Party for some reason bs a guilty pleasure. :) BTW. Anyone seen the awesome Geoffrey Rush Sellers biography? It's so good!

The Geoffrey Rush bio-pic was superb! John Lithgow was excellent in that too as Blake Edwards :D

I've seen all his films I should think, including some of the dodgy ones like Soft Beds, Hard Battles, which was pretty funny (on purpose for a novelty) for soft porn. :P

I've seen all the Pink Panthers with him in it (hate, hate, hate the Steve Martin ones :evil: ), most of them at the cinema and once nearly suffocated from laughing too much during a double bill of the Return of the PP (Christopher Plummer as Sir Charles Lytton with the 'hurrrrhummm serveece' and sauna scene and PP Strikes Again (when Dreyfus finally loses it and turns criminal) :lol:

Loved the bloke - but what a bastard he must been to live with! :shock:

Not a big fan of Sellers but Being There is a fantastic movie.

Going back to his early days - this is just perfect comedy and the timing is immaculate.

I was sitting the the theatre with my feet on the seat in front during a Pink Panther movie, when I laughed so much I fell off the chair and got wedged between the rows... still laughing so hard while my friends tried to pry me loose.
