"Past lives leaking through and confusing him in this life." (Shirley Maclaine on Sellers in "Playboy interview).

Prince Charles had been a fan of Sellers since "The Goon Show". In 1975, after he had seen The Return of the Pink Panther (1975) in Montreal, Charles wrote to Sellers that he'd laughed so hard he had wet the dress of the woman in the next seat.

Was an amateur photographer and camera nut for most of his life.
