  1. Sir Peter Ustinov telling us he had a sense of humor makes me sad that he was never given a chance to be in a romantic comedy, that I know of! He has always been a favorite of mine, in the serious films I saw with him in them.

    • Hot Millions from 1968 is a combination of Comedy and Crime, perhaps not as romantic as you would have liked. Sir Peter Ustinov was believable in every role, also one of my favourite actors.

      • He was definitely a fine actor with a distinguished career, Karen. I am happy he made a funny movie and will try.to.looK this Hot Millions up. Thanks for letting.me know!

    • I couldn’t agree more, David. He was also fluent in several languages (English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian) – a linguist’s idol.
