A 1975 classic now on DVD,
This review is from: The Pink Panther Strikes Again [DVD] (DVD)
"Pink Panther Strikes Again" was the fifth Pink Panther film starring Peter Sellers with Herbert Lom as Police Commissioner Dreyfus who, after working with Clouseau for years, has been committed to a mental institution from which he escapes; as his insanity reaches a new pinnacle, he tries to intimidate the rest of the world into killing Clouseau.
With Blake Edwards still firmly in the director's chair and Lesley-Anne Down playing the glamour, it continues the phenomenal success of the series with a laugh a minute. Although there are some signs of its wearing thin, the series put another film in the can two years later, the last in the series (apart from the discredited "Trail of the Pink Panther" in 1982, cobbled together from previously unused film).
This is another film classic from a highly successful crew, which, despite its few bonuses, will continue to provide laughs for years to come now that it is on DVD.
