Peter Sellers's third go-around as the prideful but bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau is funny enough, but this 1975 Blake Edwards revival of the Sellers-Clouseau connection is a little weak in comparison to predecessors The Pink Panther and A Shot in the Dark (both made in 1964). Costar Christopher Plummer actually gets some of the most interesting screen time as a retired cat burglar whom Clouseau accuses of getting back into the business. (If it sounds like there might be a To Catch a Thief vibe mixed in here, you're right.) Herbert Lom is hilarious as Clouseau's psychologically eroding boss, and Clouseau's ritualistic collisions with valet Cato (Burt Kwouk) are great examples of Edwards's delicious comic timing. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

audio italianosacra reliquia del popolo dei lugash, nonche' uno dei piu' grandi diamanti del pianeta, la pantera rosa continua ad attirare le attenzioni dei piu' scaltri ladri del mondo e a catalizzare gli sforzi dellineffabile ispettore clouseau. quando la gemma sparisce, il catastrofico ispettore punta le sue attenzioni sul celebre phantom, ladro gentiluomo che ha appeso il grimaldello al chiodo e vive gli ozi del suo buen retiro in costa azzurra. cosi' lispettor clouseau, in uno dei suoi improbabili travestimenti, si intrufola nella residenza del sospettato, scatenando una valanga di catastrofi da lui stesso provocate, facendo letteralmente impazzire il suo diretto superiore, lispettore capo dreyfuss. ma alla fine, in un crescendo di situazioni comiche e risate a crepapelle, riuscira' a risolvere il caso a modo suo.-

4.0 out of 5 stars Not now Cato! 24 April 2008
This is the third story in the Pink Panther series and it's a really funny movie. The plot is a bit stretched at times but it is compensated by the brilliant comic timing and physical humour of Sellers, and Herbert Lom's Commissioner Dreyfus with his slow mental breakdown over the course of the film. This sets up the next installment (Pink Panther Strikes Again) which is probably the best for laugh-out-loud comedy. However, this film is not far behind especially when you hark back to Clouseau reprimanding the blind man with the monkey, outside the bank being so conspicuously robbed!

The only downside is that it doesn't have the same strength in cast as the first movie where diamond thief Sir Charles Litton aka The Phantom (or "Charles Phantom aka The Litton") is played by David Niven so effortlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the funniest 18 Jun 2007
I haven't, in truth, watched this film for years, but I remember it as being one of the funniest in the Pink Panther series (A Shot In The Dark being, overall, the best film per se.)

I thought it might be useful to say to Sellers collectors that this film is not included in the Pink Panther box set in the UK. I think this is because the home video distribution rights were sold to another company, away from UA. So, if you want the complete Pink Panther, you need to get this disc as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sellers in Genius mode!!!! 24 Feb 2006
By R. Reel
Well you have to hand it to Sellers for this one, everything about this film is a diamond. It is better than the first movie and clearly the most wanted Pink Panther movie to complete your collection. This is a must buy, it is so funny and entertaining, if you love Sellers you will adore this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film Dire disc 12 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Quite why the company decided to release this film in such an apalling fashion is beyond me. I had waited for years for the Panther films to be released in widescreen. Sadly the DVD company has decided to waste it's time in releasing it in fullscreen.
Buy the R1 discs if you want to see the film as it is meant to be seen. This version of the disc should be consigned to the waste bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst DVD transfer I've ever seen 8 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is an absolute classic, even if some of the visual gags are as old as the hills, and I've waited years for the Pink Panther series to be available on DVD. The region 2 disc arrived this morning, and is by a huge distance the most disappointing DVD I've ever bought (and I've got a lot). There are no extra features apart from a lo-fi stills gallery of no worth, and the picture is fullscreen 4:3, wasting everyone's time who has invested in a widescreen TV. All this wouldn't be too bad, if the picture quality were as beautiful as the recently re-issued Bond series... The sound is rubbish, the colours bleached and faded, the picture slightly blurred and every frame is visited by dandruff-like black and white flakes of interference. In short, this is worse that than the VHS or TV versions of the film...

Ah the pure joy of Sellars at his best! The list of catchphrases that have been burned in to my brain are too many to count. The cunning disguises of Gee Gadboir and Mr Flourdnoy combined with the fact that Sellars managed to make his own co actors laugh during the final takes (See in the bar with Sellars "Heres looking at you kid" speech, she really cant stop laughing!)
The film itself is scripted well and uses what we already know of Sir Charles Litton to further expound on his character. His wife is the perfect target for Sellars attempts at detective work and "The Madman Dreyfuss" is completeley spellbinding. The first scene with Clousseau itself is probably the funniest film moment I know of.
Absolute Genius!
"There was some question wheter the beggar or his monkey was breaking the law"
CLOUSSEAU: "City ordanance 371R prohibits the playing of any musical instrument in a public place for the purpose of commercial enterprise without a proper license."
BEGGAR: "How do you know so much about city ordanance?"
CLOUSSEAU: "What sort of stupid question is that! Are you blind!!
BEGGAR: "Yes!"

Of course, Peter Sellers IS Clouseau! From one bumble to the next, this is definitely a comedy of its time (they really don't make them like this anymore}. Herbert Lom, Graham Stark, Christopher Plummer, Catherine Schell, Burt Kwouk, a great cast and a very entertaining plot albeit a tad repetitive at times, but don't let that put you off.

Following a line of Clouseau films, we now find Herbert Lom as Chief Inspector Dreyfuss - pulling his hair out in frustration, and Sellers playing it in his own inimitable way. There really is no-one to touch him, and I laughed at his antics to the end. If you Love'll love the film.

Out of interest this particular film is not available in the collection The Pink Panther Film Collection (6 Disc Box Set) [1976] [DVD]

2.0 out of 5 stars Film is classic, DVD transfer sucks 15 Jun 2001
By A Customer
The film content is priceless, Sellars steals the show.
The transfer is very poor, it has blips and is not widescreen - much of the visual joke is lost because you can't see what's going on. It's only funny if you've already seen the film widescreen.

I did not realise as it came from America and I could not play it on an English DVD system. You can play it on a lap top but it is not quite the same so very disappointed
