Product Description


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

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly mastered video April 10 2004
No need to comment on the plot which is hilarious, just the DVD picture quality.
While it's in letterbox, the image is fuzzy (as in VHS quality). I suspect that instead of using 35mm film, Artisan Entertainment simply pulled this from a laserdisc and burned it down to DVD. If you see it in a bargain bin it's ok for the kids, otherwise wait for a newer version to be released.

1.0 out of 5 stars Artisan does it again Jan. 24 2004
By Yarby
Artisan has released yet another low quality DVD of a classic movie. Regardless of your feelings about Seller and the "Panther" series, this one is to be avoided, based solely on a non-anomorphic picture with the quality of an EP-recorded VHS tape and sound with a continual hiss throughout.
Hopefully the original studio will see fit to give this movie a decent transfer in the future.

2.0 out of 5 stars DVD Picture Quality - TERRIBLE! Jan. 15 2003
No question, if you are a Peter Sellers fan this movie is a must-have. But why such a lousy transfer to DVD. My laserdiscs of "Shot in the Dark" and "The Pink Panther Stirkes Again" were much better. Now I'm completely gun-shy about buying these DVD's until someone improves their quality.

This DVD was missing from our collection. We thoroughly enjoyed watching it and intend to watch the entire Peter Sellers series quite often.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing video quality July 19 2001
By A Customer
A very good movie but the DVD quality is really disappointing compared to the rest of the Pink Panther series. It is just like watching a video copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars DA DUM DA DUM, DA DUM, DA DUM DA DUM DA DUM... June 20 2004
Has there ever been a more catchy theme than Mancini's "Pink Panther?" I can't think of any off hand, and in this third entry in the Clouseau series, the music and the animated panther are back in fine form.
Mainly a vehicle for the superb Peter Sellers, this sequel is tired in plot, and struggles for some of its laughs, but one cannot deny the superlative hijinks of Sellers as the impossibly inept Inspector Clouseau. He has so many brilliant moments, it's hard to think of them all, but Sellers is in top form. Christopher Plummer and Catherine Schell do okay, but Herbert Lom and Burt Kwouk as Dreyfuss and Kato are outstanding in their supporting roles. Lom's slow decline into mental illness is hilarious in its cartoonish way, and Kato's fights with Sellers are priceless.
It's an entertaining if inconsequential movie, but I had lots of fun watching it!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair to middlin' sequel May 31 2004
The movie had a few humorous moments, but I found some of it tedious. Cato and Dreyfus are still a riot. though. Cato and Clouseau have their karate fights, culminating in Cato dressing as a Japanese waitress. Clouseau finally drives Dreyfus into the nuthouse after Dreyfuss repeatedly shoots himself with a cigarette lighter.

I still prefer "A Shot in the Dark" and think it is the best of the series. I did not care for the original "Pink Panther" as I found it unfunny.
Although the picture was not razor-sharp, it is not as bad as the one-star whiners would have you believe. With minimal extras, if you don't have high expectations, then the low-priced DVD may be worth your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, No Extras
Except for a trailer, there are no real extras on this dvd, thats why it loses a star. The film itself, however, is magnificent. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, not-so-great DVD
Peter Sellers was one of the most gifted comic actors of the 1960s and 1970s; Inspector Clouseau was his most beloved role. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, aweful DVD
Enough has been said about the merits of the movie. But beware, the DVD is of extremely low quality. Looks worse than a VCD pirate and far worse than the VHS, which I also have.
