Peter Sellers Gives a Quick Demonstration of British Accents

A while ago we brought you a hilarious series of recordings of the British comedic actor Peter Sellers reading The Beatles' "She Loves You" in four different accents. Today we have a brief clip from a telephone call by Sellers on the set of Stanley Kubrick's 1964 film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (in which Sellers played three different roles). Here he demonstrates the nuances of a few of the many accents around Great Britain. From cockney to upper class and from London to Edinburgh, it's classic Sellers all the way.
