Valued Exposure: Herbert Lom

Herbert Lom in Return of the Pink Panther

Actor Herbert Lom, best known for playing Charles Dreyfus in the Pink Panther films, has died aged 95. He first appeared as Police Chief Dreyfus in 1964's A Shot In The Dark, a character who became increasingly mentally unstable as a result of his subordinate Insp Clouseau's incompetence. He is pictured here in a scene from Return of the Pink Panther. Lom appeared in more than 100 films during his 60-year career, including such classics as The Ladykillers, Spartacus and El Cid.
