Sir Peter Alexander Ustinov - English actor, writer, producer, and playwright.

Sir Peter Ustinov (1921-2004) Actor, writer, director, spoke many languages, knew something about everything. Brilliant and fascinating. Spartacus. Topkapi. Emperor Nero.


Terence Stamp, Peter Ustinov. Ustinov directed, and co-starred with Stamp in "Billy Budd". I assume this was about the time of the film's release in 1962. The film is a minor classic btw. These two and a chilling Robert Ryan are all brilliant in it.

Peter Ustinov. The great raconteur and actor. Probably Stephen Fry's idol.
