Biography

British leading lady Lynne Frederick appeared in a few films of the 1970s. She is perhaps best remembered as the fourth and final wife of comedian/actor Peter Sellers and for the court battle she waged after his death, against Blake Edwards and the studio that made and released Trail of the Pink Panther (1982), a compilation of unused footage from the late funnyman's most famous film series. Frederick felt the film insulted Sellers' memory. The London courts agreed and awarded her more than a million dollars. As an actress, Frederick made her film debut in No Blade of Grass (1970). Her subsequent films include Vampire Circus (1971), The Amazing Mr. Blundun (1972), Voyage of the Damned (1976), and her final film, The Prisoner of Zenda (1979). Shortly after Sellers' death, Frederick married interviewer David Frost. They split up in 1982. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
