Trivia that mentions this person:
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery [1997]
  • Mike Myers has revealed in interviews that the Austin Powers character was created based on a couple of instances involving his family. His father loved watching British comedies with actors like Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness, so Myers always wanted to play an English character in a comedy. He also said that one night after coming home from hockey practice, he started flirting with his wife in an English accent. His wife laughed and told him to write the routine down, so he could do it again. Writing the routine down led to this script.
    Beat the Devil [1953]
  • Humphrey Bogart was involved in a serious automobile accident during production of this film, which knocked out several of his teeth and hindered his ability to speak. John Huston hired a young British actor noted for his mimicry skills to rerecord some of Bogart's spoken lines during post-production looping. Although it is undetectable when viewing the film today, it is Peter Sellers who provides Bogart's voice during some of the scenes in this movie.
    Fletch [1985]
  • Irwin Fletcher's daydream of playing in the NBA was based partly on another "Earvin"; former L.A. Laker [?] Magic Johnson. In the movie's promotional poster, Fletch's team ID card bears the name "Magic Christian" (a reference to The Magic Christian, a 1969 Peter Sellers movie based on a [?] Terry Southern novel).
    The Muppet Show: Various Episodes [1976]
  • When Peter Sellers was chosen to guest star, he requested that a skit known as "The Wall" not be done with him. In this skit, Kermit interviews the guest for a short period just as themselves, and Sellers' stated that he couldn't be himself. "I can be Queen Victoria, but I cannot be myself," he said. The writers replaced "The Wall" with a skit where Sellers played Queen Victoria.
