4.0 out of 5 stars Different from later films but........., 4 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Pink Panther [DVD] (DVD)
After watching 'The Pink Panther Strikes again' I couldn't wait to see the orginal. Initially I was a little disapointed as compared to the later films in the series but after watching the film again recently I have found it is much more funnier and clever than I ever remembered. Although David Niven's character is the centre of the story, Clouseau steals every scene he appears in. It shows Peter sellers at his very best as at every opportunity he has a clumsy accident, whether it is falling over or burning his hand.
The plot involving the Phantom (Niven), his nephew (Wagner) and Clouseau's wife is excellent, even though it can be confusing at times. One scene for example sees Clouseau's wife trying to hide Niven (who she is having an affair with) and Wagner (who wants an affair) in her bedroom, whilst Clouseau is there wanting a shower, this is classic comedy at it's best.
The film may appeared dated in places with a song sung in one stage and scenes that can be prolonged.
It may not be as funny as some films but the comedy is subtle and clever. It is very different from the following films but if you watch it with an open mind you'll love it.
This was the start of a great series!
