Still an Essential Collection,
This review is from: The Pink Panther Film Collection (5 Disc Box Set) [DVD]  (DVD)
Like many of the reviews so far, it is disappointing that Return of the Pink Panther is not in this collection. But it was never destined for this box set - Return is licensed to a completely different distributor. Lets hope it will be released soon with a restored & remastered widescreen DVD release.
Like many, the inclusion of Trail raises a few questions. I do not object to it being in the collection, but then why didn't they include the follow up movie Curse, which would more neatly complete the series. Ok, it may not have Peter Sellers, and isn't one of the gems of the series, but at least it has more of a plot than the Trail clip compilation.
The other alternative would have been not to release Trail in the package but to create an extended edition of Strikes Again with the additional Peter Sellers footage Trail contains. The reason for this is that all the PS footage from Trail comes from unused out-takes from Strikes Again.
Anyway, despite this, and a flimsy cardboard & easily damaged presentation box, the other movies in the series featured in this collection are absolute classics. My own personal favourite - Revenge!
