With Herbert Lom, Leo McKern, Nadia Gray, Peter Sellers
Mr. Topaze was Peter Sellers' directorial debut in 1961. Starring Sellers, Nadia Gray and Leo McKern, as well as Herbert Lom who quarrelled with Seller's Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther movies.
The film is considered one of Seller's lost films, and its distribution and screening today is virtually non-existent. His son Michael Sellers plays in the film in the role of Gaston.
However, one copy of the film still remains, locked in the British Film Institute archives. The film was extremely rarely shown, once during the 2003 Cardiff Independent Film Festival.
