Biography by Hal Erickson

Of Anglo-American descent, Malaya-born actor Peter Arne was generally cast as a hissable, thoroughly unregenerate villain. In wartime films, Arne was usually "the enemy," both German and Italian (he reportedly spoke both languages quite well). His roles ranged from Menas in Antony and Cleopatra (1973) to supporting menaces in Blake Edwards' Pink Panther films. Peter Arne was 63 when he was bludgeoned to death in his London apartment, a murder that has remained unsolved; his last appearance in the TV miniseries The Far Pavillions was released posthumously.
