  1. Aw, RIP.

    He was so perfect in this role.

  2. I adored the Clouseau flicks when I was a little kid. I’m not quite as crazy about them now, but they all have their moments and Dreyfus’s arc from head of the Sûreté to master villain is pretty funny.

  3. Excellent choice for Lom of course. He was also well-known for his turn as the lead in the 1962 THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and also in the popular THE LADYKILLERS.

    R.I.P. Excellent innings.

  4. I would’ve picked Ladykillers instead since I favor it over this, but I’d already used it some months back and I’m still on a strict no repeat policy.
