Salute to Herbert Lom (1917- 2012)

He was well known as the hysterical (and funny) chief inspector Charles Dreyfus, the boss and also the worst enemy of the Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) in the series of slapstick Pink Panther comedies.

Like Anthony Quayle, he was a charismatic second role in many great adventure and famous epic films : “The Ladykillers” (1955), “War & Peace” (1956), “Spartacus” (1960), “El Cid” (1961), “Die Nibelungen Part 2” (1967) and “King Solomon’s Mines” (1985)…

So Long Herbie... R. I. P. 

Here are some stills from my collection...
