Herbert Lom (1917–2012)

by Andrew Stuttaford

Herbert Lom, a mainstay of the movies for decades, particularly in Britain, has died.

He’s best known over here (I suspect) as Chief Inspector Dreyfus in the original Pink Panther films. He was born Herbert Karel Angelo Kuchacevičze Schluderpacheru, possibly the best name ever. RIP.
