Peter Sellers doing Laurence Olivier as Richard III doing A Hard Day's Night

You must watch this. This means you too, Mum:

This is Peter Sellers doing his version of Laurence Olivier doing Richard III's "Now is the winter of our discontent" speech through The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." The TV program was the "Music of Lennon and McCartney" from 1964.

And okay, here is the Olivier speech he's riffing on:

And this, Peter Sellers doing an Irish version of She Loves You:


  1. I did, I did - Sellars is sketch!

  2. Please correct the repeated mis-spellings of Mr. Sellers' name. You are getting Google hits for the famous theater and opera director.

  3. But wait, don't I want lots of hits?

    I'll fix it, whoever you are.
