Panther Remake Would Horrify Sellers, Claims Biographer07 February 2006
In the credits for this year's (06) remake, producers have credited the original film's director Blake Edwards and late scriptwriter Maurice Richlin for the creation of Clouseau, when in fact Sellers came up with a lot of the character's bumbling trademarks.
His biographer ROGER LEWIS says, "Sellers would be furious he hasn't been mentioned, and that Blake Edwards has been credited for the creation of the Clouseau character.
"Sellers always believed that character was his conception, and I think he was right."
Sellers died of a heart attack in 1980, aged 54.
