"The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers"
Peter Sellers was nominated for the 1980 Academy Award as Best Actor for his role as "Chauncey Gardiner" (actually Chance The Gardener) in "Being There". It was a tough category that year - he was up against Roy Scheider, Al Pacino, and Jack Lemmon, and they all lost to Dustin Hoffman in "Kramer vs. Kramer". (I think Scheider should have won for "All That Jazz", but what do I know?)
"Being There" was Sellers' penultimate film role......
