amazing how the amazing story of how peter sellers was paid a million dollars (and a gift of a white rolls royce) to play james bond, made a terrible movie, drove everyone crazy and killed the producer completely fails to mention sellers’s mental and physical ill health.
when he appeared on the muppet show in 1978 and the frog told him he could relax and be himself, sellers said :
But that, you see, my dear Kermit, would be altogether impossible. I could never be myself … You see, there is no me. I do not exist … There used to be a me, but I had it surgically removed.
