Product description

Product Description

Using a unique collection of his own home movies shot between 1948 and 1977 and discovered years after his death, this film presents an intriguing and intimate portrait of Peter Sellers.  

The Peter Seller’s Story’ will be released on DVD with the previously un-broadcast Academy Award nominated short film The Running, Jumping and Standing Still Film as an extra for the first time on October 24th. Never previously shown outside the cinema circuit, The Running, Jumping and Standing Film was filmed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day’s Night) .

Filmed using Sellers’ hand-held Bolex camera, it boasts a series of slapstick vignettes set to Lester’s composed music. A home movie made ostensibly by friends, for friends, this eleven minute film features the comedic talents of Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, Richard Lester, Graham Stark and others.

A compelling and definitive portrait of the man and his life.

‘The Peter Sellers Story…As He Filmed It’ was re-cut from the original 1995 BAFTA-nominated ‘Arena’ documentary transmitted in 2002 on BBC TWO.

Told in his own words, and including many well-known personalities from Stanley Kubrick, Sophia Loren and Robert Wagner to members of the Royal Family, in particular Princess Margaret and Prince Charles, this revealing film builds a fascinating and definitive record of a unique genius.
