Peter Sellers - Comedic Genius (4 person items)

"Admittedly Sellers was not always the funnest guy in real life, but he was undeniably a comic genius onscreen. I never was one for The Pink Panther films, maybe I didn’t give them a fair shake– but I love the madcap classics The Party (directed by Blake Edwards), What’s New Pussycat? (screenplay by Woody Allen), Dr. Strangelove (Stanley Kubrick’s dark classic), and the simply brilliant, Being There. He hung out with George and Ringo from The Beatles, and had a penchant for style that mat"

10 Directors Not Afraid of Nudes (11 person items)

" Some of this director's nude (or near-nude) images are surely burned into your brain: Bo Derek on the beach in 1979's 10 (oh yeah, and the full-on nude orgy in the same film); the glow-in-the-dark condom scene in 1989’s SKIN DEEP; a topless Julie Andrews (!!) in 1981's S.O.B.... it's okay, it's okay, Edwards was married to Mary Poppins until his death in 2010. And it was all very meta: S.O.B. is a film within a film about a fading movie producer who wants to get a famously wholesome actress "
