Actor Herbert Lom has died. The Guardian, The New York Times and the BBC all have obituaries. Lom is probably most famous as Inspector Dreyfus in The Pink Panther films, but he also starred in many other films including, Night And The City, The Seventh Veil, Spartacus, The Phantom of the Opera and Count Dracula. Among his many coolnesses, I can’t get over he was born a Czech count with the name, Herbert Charles Angelo Kuchacevich ze Schluderpacheru.
