Vincent Canby of The New York Times said of Sellers in the film, "There is, too, something most winningly seedy about Mr. Sellers' Clouseau, a fellow who, when he attempts to tear off his clothes in the heat of passion, gets tangled up in his necktie, and who, when he masquerades—for reasons never gone into—as Quasimodo, overinflates his hump with helium.
In March Sellers began dating actress Lynne Frederick , whom he married on 18 February Julian Upton expressed the view that the strain behind the scenes began to manifest itself in the sluggish pace of the film, describing it as a "laboured, stunt-heavy hotchpotch of half-baked ideas and rehashed gags".
When Kermit the Frog told Sellers he could relax and be himself, Sellers replied:. 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.
In , Sellers starred alongside Lynne Frederick, Lionel Jeffries and Elke Sommer in Richard Quine 's The Prisoner of Zenda. He portrayed three roles, including King Rudolf IV and King Rudolf V—rulers of the fictional small nation of Ruritania—and Syd Frewin, Rudolf V's half-brother.
Upon its release in May , the film was well received; Janet Maslin of The New York Times observed how Sellers divided "his energies between a serious character and a funny one, but that it was his serious performance which was more impressive".
Later in , Sellers starred opposite Shirley MacLaine , Melvyn Douglas and Jack Warden in the black comedy Being There as Chance, a simple-minded gardener addicted to watching TV who is regarded as a sage by the rich and powerful.
A lesser actor would have made the character's mental dysfunction flamboyant and drastic In March , Sellers asked his year-old daughter Victoria what she thought about Being There : she reported later that "I said yes, I thought it was great.
But then I said, 'You looked like a little fat old man'. He threw his drink over me and told me to get the next plane home.
I won't tell you what I think of you. It must be obvious. Goodbye, Your Father. Sellers's last film was The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu , a comedic re-imagining of the eponymous adventure novels by Sax Rohmer ; Sellers played both police inspector Nayland Smith and Fu Manchu, alongside Helen Mirren and David Tomlinson.
The production of the film was troublesome before filming started, with two directors— Richard Quine and John Avildsen —fired before the script had been completed.
Sellers's final performances were a series of advertisements for Barclays Bank. Filmed in April in Ireland, he played Monty Casino, a Jewish con-man.
Sellers had recently started to rebuild his relationship with his son Michael after the failure of the latter's marriage. In lighter moments, Sellers had joked that his epitaph should read "Star of stage, screen and alimony.
On 21 July Sellers arrived in London from Geneva. He checked into the Dorchester hotel, before visiting Golders Green Crematorium for the first time to see the location of his parents' ashes.
He was taken to the Middlesex Hospital , London, and died just after midnight on 24 July , aged Following Sellers's death, fellow actor Richard Attenborough said that Sellers "had the genius comparable to Chaplin",  while the Boulting brothers considered Sellers as "a man of enormous gifts; and these gifts he gave to the world.
For them, he is assured of a place in the history of art as entertainment. Everywhere you went, the fact that Peter had died seemed like an umbrella over everything".
He had an enormous facility for finding really unusual, unique facets of the character he was playing".
Peter was such a tremendous artist. He had so much talent, it just oozed out of him";  in dark humour, referring to the missed dinner the Goons had planned, he added, "Anything to avoid paying for dinner".
A private funeral service was held at Golders Green Crematorium on 26 July, conducted by Sellers's old friend, Canon John Hester. After his death, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer tried to continue with Romance of the Pink Panther and offered the role of Clouseau to Dudley Moore , who turned it down.
The studio subsequently returned to Blake Edwards, who was adamant not to recast the character, feeling certain that no one could adequately replace Sellers.
In Edwards released Trail of the Pink Panther , which was composed entirely of deleted scenes from his past three Panther films.
Vincent Canby of The New York Times said of the Pink Panther films "I'm not sure why Mr. Sellers and Mr. Lom are such a hilarious team, though it may be because each is a fine comic actor with a special talent for portraying the sort of all-consuming, epic self-absorption that makes slapstick farce initially acceptable—instead of alarming—and finally so funny.
The original script makes him out to be a complete idiot. I thought a forgivable vanity would humanise him and make him kind of touching.
Sellers' biographer , Ed Sikov, notes that because of this retained dignity, Sellers is "the master of playing men who have no idea how ridiculous they are.
Wesson considers that "As 'low' and 'high' comedy rolled into one, it's the performative counterpoint to Edwardian sophisticated naturalism ".
Author Aaron Sultanik observed that in Sellers's early films, such as I'm All Right Jack , he displays "deft, technical interpretations [that] pinpoint the mechanical nature of his comic characterization", which " Academics Maria Pramaggiore and Tom Wallis remarked that Sellers fits the mould of a technical actor because he displays a mastery of physical characterisation, such as accent or physical trait.
By chance he ordered cockles for lunch and the smell brought back a memory of the seaside town of Morecambe : this gave him "the idea of a faded North Country accent and the suggestion of a scrappy moustache".
New York magazine stated that all of the films starring Sellers as Clouseau showcased his "comedic brilliance".
Sellers and The Goon Show were a strong influence on the Monty Python performers,  with John Cleese calling him "the greatest voice man of all time", adding, "If he could listen to you for five minutes, he could do a perfect impersonation of you.
The American comedy troupe the Firesign Theatre also cited the Goons as a big influence on their radio comedy style. Sellers and the Goons were also an influence on Peter Cook ,  who described Sellers as "the best comic actor in the world".
