On the positive end, you get four great "Panther" movies and the bodged-together "Trail of the Pink Panther", plus a disk of extras. Some people have dismissed the extras disk as inconsequential, but I rather enjoyed it. I particularly liked the documentary "The Pink Panther Story" which was heavy on interviews and insight. I had no idea that Sellers hated "A Shot in the Dark", whereas I (and many others) think it is a perfect movie in every way.Read more ›
The 4 worthy films, though, shine as comedy classics, fully display Sellers' genius, witness the evolution of the Clouseau character, and feature the talents of Seller's surroundings casts and Edwards' direction. Many can argue which is the best film; I personally prefer 'The Pink Panther' followed by 'Revenge of the Pink Panther'.
The bonus disc has one documentary about the Panther films, one documentary about the Panther animation, and 6 Pink Panther cartoons. The main documentary has some good info about the Panther series, but is not nearly as comprehensive as it could be. There is no mention of the thought process behind 'Trail' and scant detail about the other films.
'The Pink Panther' has audio commentary by Blake Edwards, a trivia feature, a photo gallery, and the original trailer. The other films have only the photo galleries and trailers.
Deep insight into the Pink Panther series is missing in this collection, but it's also an excellent value for four great comedies.
Personally I like all of the movies including Curse Of The Pink Panther. Aside from everyones annoyance with Ted Wass in Curse, it definitely had an interesting story and made sense in the direction it went with Cluseau missing and being kidnapped, brainwashed, and surgically altered to look like Roger Moore! The appearances by David Niven, Capucine, and Robert Wagner are another reason to enjoy Curse, and I really liked the ending with the trio finally getting the diamond back. A little less of Ted Wass would have helped Curse. It would have been interesting to actually see Capucine stealing the diamond. I think people should have given Curse a chance, it was obvious there was plans to continue with another film that probably would have been very good and tied up the mysteries left in Curse, since Curse ended with Cluseau still missing and the diamond stolen. Son of the Pink Panther made no mention of the events in Curse or what exactly happened to Cluseau.Read more ›

You can't get any better than Peter Sellers. This is a great classic film filled with a lot of silly comedy. To have all the films in one box set is a real gem.Published on Nov. 26 2012 by Tori
