Peter Sellers (September 8, 1925 – July 24, 1980

Chaplin briefly considered Sellers for the role of Hudson in A Countess From Hong Kong (1967). During an interview with Francis Wyndham in 1964, Chaplin said he hated most American films but was enthusiastic about Dr. Strangelove and did “an hilarious impression of George C. Scott squirming in the war room.” He also admired the film’s director Stanley Kubrick. In fact, one of the last films Chaplin ever watched was Barry Lyndon.
