Peter Ustinov

Director

Peter Ustinov, the portly, bearded Renaissance man of British theatre, who carried on simultaneous careers as actor, director, playwright and all-around wit for half a century, died in Switzerland on March 28, 2004. He was 82. Mr. Ustinov, who was born in London, seemed to go through life with a devilish twinkle in his eye. He saw humor in every aspect of his career and life and expressed his thoughts imcomparably well in countless talk show appearances. "Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious," he once said.
