  1. Missing Peter Sellers Films Discovered

    Zis is quite zee find! Two 30-minute comedies from 1957 starring famed comedian Peter Sellers, thought lost forever, have resurfaced. “Insomnia is Good for You” and “Death of a Salesman” (decidedly not the depressing Arthur Miller play of the same name) were dumped in a trashcan outside London’s now-defunct Park Lane Films studio in 1996. The building manager took the canisters home and only recently realized their contents, which one film festival promoter called “the Dead Sea Scrolls of the film world.” A public showing is planned for May.
