Looking back at Peter Sellers in Hoffman

Peter Sellers is one of those figures of British comedy whom everyone feels, in retrospect, was only laughing on the outside.

Due to the suicide (unless proven otherwise) of George Reeves, who played the character on television; and the tragic accident that paralyzed Christopher Reeve, one of his alter egos in film, there has even been talk through the years of a “Superman curse.”

Analyzing the challenges of being Superman, however — and toting the massive baggage he carries on his back — doesn’t require any superstitious mumbo-jumbo. The factors would »
