Rest in Peace: Herbert LomHollywood has lost another legend in the business as we are truly saddened to hear of the death of the great Herbert Lom. Read on to reflect upon the man’s legacy and celebrate his long and storied career!

According to The Huffington Post Lom, fondly remembered for his roles in the Pink Panther films during his half-century of film appearances, has died at the age of 95. He died peacefully in his sleep this morning, his family said.

The Czech-born, London-based star appeared in more than 100 films including classics such as Spartacus, El Cid, The Ladykillers, and the horror classics The Phantom of the Opera, Mark of the Devil, Asylum, Murders in the Rue Morgue, and The Dead Zone.

    Personally, I’ve come to prefer Herbert Lom as my favorite Phantom. More so than anyone else, I feel he captured the tragedy and sadness of the character, while also giving him menace and intensity.

    Hysterical in the Pink panther movies.
