The Pink Panther Reviews
- This is probably the best film of the series as Sellers is a little more restrained and the jokes seem fresher. originally the film was to focus on Davide Niven, but they kept adding more and more Seller and then the series became about Clouseau. Even if you don't like the character, try this first film!
Inspector Jacques Clouseau is a womanizing putz inspector chasing a jewelry thief. His affections for the ladies actually lead him to a culprit without him even knowing it. The thief is executing right under the inspector's nose, can the inspector stop him?
"You were more fun in bed."
Blake Edwards, director of Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Return of the Pink Panther, Revenge of the Pink Panther, and Son of the Pink Panther, delivers Pink Panther. The storyline for this picture is a bit bland and the comedic content is dated. The actors deliver solid performances and the cast includes Peter Sellers, David Niven, Robert Wagner, Capucine, and John Le Mesurier.
"Don't you trust me?"
I recently came across these films playing on HBO and added them to the wish list. This was very average and just mildly entertaining. I wouldn't go too out of my way to see this.
