Peter Sellers as Lionel Meadows in “Never Let Go” (1960)
Peter Sellers gives the brilliant portrayal of a sadistic, ruthless criminal who runs a gang of stolen car racketeers. In the course of the film Meadows’ mind becomes more and more deranged. He stops at nothing and his reign is based on violence, terror and fear until he is hunt down by an ordinary but courageous salesman whose car has been stolen by Meadows’ gang.
Sadly “Never Let Go” was a box office flop and Peter Sellers never again played a villain although his performance is absolutely fascinating and proves that he was a highly gifted actor who convincingly could play serious roles.
I see us getting married, moving in together, cuddling on the couch, waking up to the good morning kisses, having arguments, making up after, cooking our favorite foods, smiling for no reason, annoying each other when we’re bored, having the cutest little babies, watching them grow up, never leaving each other’s side.
