Date of Death: 1980-07-24 (Thursday, July 24th, 1980)

    • I like to watch.
    • Finally, in conclusion, let me say just this...
    • I feel ghostly unreal until I become somebody else again on the screen.
    • I writhe when I see myself on the screen. I'm such a dreadfully clumsy hulking image. I say to myself, 'Why doesn't he get off? Why doesn't he get off?' I mean, I look like such an idiot. Some fat awkward thing dredged up from some third-rate drama company. I must stop thinking about it, otherwise I shan't be able to go on working.

    • Peter Sellers, a showbiz baby, was carried onstage two weeks into his life by vaudevillian Dickie Henderson, who encouraged the audience to join him in singing 'For He's a Jolly Good Fellow.' Little Peter instantly burst into tears and the audience erupted into laughter and applause. From Pete's perspective, this emotional scenario was played out more or less consistently until his death in 1980.
