pretty sore loser


Yeah, yeah, I remember that name all right.

Maybe she made some telephone calls, who cares?'

photo: peter sellers playing table tennis with james mason. the genius dialogue between the two actors was most likely written by the books novelist vladimir nabokov who is credited with writing the screenplay. not only did russian born nabokov master the english language, he was hysterically funny in english as well. peter sellers is simply crazy great as 'clare quilty', the man who died for love, even though it was not his own.

mr. sellers slays me with his neurotic 'tense' dialogue of intrigue in this film. talk about bi-polar charisma mason and sellers together!
