Peter Sellers and Stanley Kubrick on the set of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964, dir. Stanley Kubrick) (via The Stanley Kubrick Archives)

“I love Peter. I think he’s a great actor, but I am never any good on this sort of thing. I’m terribly inhibited about discussing an artist like Peter, but I’ll cautiously torture out a statement – I’m peculiar about this, but it’s a very personal relationship you have with an actor.

He’s the hardest worker I know. I’d come into the [Dr. Strangelove] studio at seven o’clock in the morning and there would be Peter Sellers. Waiting, ready. Full of ideas. When you are inspired and professionally accomplished as Peter, the only limit to the importance of your work is your willingness to take chances. I believe Peter will take the most incredible chances with a characterization, and he is receptive to comic ideas most of his contemporaries would think unfunny and meaningless. This has, in my view, made his best work absolutely unique and important.”

-Kubrick on Sellers, in a statement he wrote for Sellers biographer Peter Evans (Peter Sellers: The Mask Behind the Mask)

ISESEISVUMINE

müü maha mets ja meri ja kallas liivane
su lahjenenud veri siin pole viimane
müü maha au ja häbi ja veri vesine
nii tunned pole läbi sul ninaesine
müü maha õhk ja vesi müü hingest isamaa
ja hakka kambakesi siis rõõmust kisama
müü maha laps ja naine see mitte viimane
kui kauge aseaine näib küllalt kiimane
müü maha hing ja ihu mis soe ja süldine
ja tõesta müümiskihu on ilmas üldine
kui maa on müüdud haljaks ta hakkab klantsima
siis kisu ennast paljaks ja kuku tantsima
sa tantsi paesel kaldal mis jääst on tuline
ja karju ülalt alla hei nii me tulime
müü maha kaldatuled müü kogu kupatus
siin sinu järel tuleb uus suur veeuputus
