I'm Sorry Too, Dimitri

I just watched a little of Dr Strangelove. One of the things about Sellers is how quiet he is. There's George C Scott clowning away, working his socks off, giving this big, splendid, hammy performance- and Sellers, as the president, doesn't try to compete. He keeps it tight and straight and bides his time and then, when he's got the screen to himself- and he's on the phone to the Russian premier- off he goes into this wonderful, dead-pan, comic riff. What an artist!
