I love the twitch he got in his eye when dealing with Clouseau. He was a great character actor...he will live forever on film.

Bless him, he lived to 95!

For our film buffs out there, the second "Pink Panther" movie was called "A Shot in the Dark," therefore many PP fans sometimes miss it. SEE IT. It's one of the all-time best and Lom is magnificent in it.

Trivia: Lom admitted that his famous 'eye twitch' began one day when he got nervous during a scene. Director Blake Edwards loved it and pleaded that he keep it up.

Lom later said that although the PP franchise lasted nearly 20 years, he felt the material ran dry after ten. When Blake would ask him to 'do the eye twitch,' Lom would shoot back "Absolutely not. Write better material worthy of it, and then I'll do it."

I recall one movie ( i do not recall the name) where Dreyfuss was
clearly doing his best to ward off the Clouseau curse by dancing
and singing.."im gonna wash that man right out of my hair" to
which he immediately falls down a flight of stairs and disappears...

LMFAO!!!!


Classic stuff:) Back when comedy didn't have swearing and it was
still funny as all get out:)

I am a musician and the monkey, he is a business man. He
doesn't tell me what to play and I don't tell him what to do with his
money....

ROFL!
