In the 1966 tell-all Tinsel Town "drama" The Oscar (1966), Lawford had a bit part as a washed up actor now forced to work as the maitre'd at a Hollywood restaurant. Given the real-life Lawford's career downturn in the wake of his being "banished from the Rat Pack" by Frank Sinatra, his taking such a minor role was seen by many people in the industry as a prime example of "type casting".

His mother appeared in the film Hong Kong (1952) and in an episode of Peter's television series The Thin Man (1957).
Born in London, England and son of a British World War I hero, Lawford had spent most of his childhood in Paris, France and began his acting career at a very young age. His parents were not married when their son was born. As a result of the scandal, The Lawfords fled to America. As a young child, the young Peter injured his arm by in his own words, "attempt to run through a glass door. " Lawford's arm was badly injured however, the doctors could save it.

But such was his luck, the injury kept him off the draft for World War II, which became the biggest boon of his acting career. When Lawford was signed to MGM, his mother approached studio head, Louis B. Mayer, to pay her a salary as her son's personal assistant. However, Mayer declined. She then claimed that her son was "homosexual" and needed to be "supervised". This damaged the relationship between her and her son.
