Peter Sellers has always been one of my favourite actors. I especially appreciated, and still do, his embracing and treatment of the values and people of the 1960s in America and Britain (see 'I Love You Alive B. Toklas,' 'The Party,' and even 'Casino Royale' if you appreciate the latter film for the intentional farce that it is and don't try to make an Ian Fleming/Sean Connery story out of it).
I had heard, some time after his death, that Peter Sellers had lost his sense of himself late in his life. In this Muppet Show episode (if I remember correctly), Peter asked Kermit the Frog what he should do in the show, and Kermit suggested to Peter that he "just be yourself" (or something to that effect). Peter replied: "Me? There is no 'me.' There *used* to be 'me,' but I had it surgically removed." It seemed innocuous and amusing enough at the time, but gave me the shivers in hindsight....
