4.0 out of 5 stars ' You've got to have a heart before you can have an attack. ', 15 Nov 2009
This review is from: The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers (Paperback)
So said the producer Billy Wilder on the subject of Peter Sellers (on page 906 !!).Well I can't really argue about this not being a comprehensive if totally exhausting insight into the rather twisted world of Sellers as portrayed by Roger Lewis.I think I have just had a dose of the Bluebottle Blues after reading this marathon.Lewis's book is not so much a biography, more a hate filled attempt at character assassination .Just think if Sellers had lived until he was 80 years of age we could have got another 500 pages of the author sticking the proverbial boot in.Perhaps that can only be one good thing about Sellers passing away when he did. So overlong is this biography that I feel as though it has taken me a Sellers lifetime to read it.How many times does the reader need to be reminded that Sellers had a flawed personality ? I think I got the message quite early on in the book thank you Mr.Lewis.Anyhow fortunately this book hasn't diminished my opinion that Sellers was one of Britains finest actors and comedians/mimics and strangely enough I thought that the film based on this book and starring the excellent actor Geoffrey Rush was actually quite compelling.Work that one out Bluebottle nee hee !
