Product Description

One would have thought that the death of Peter Sellers in 1980 would spell the end of the Pink Panther series but Blake Edwards was able to utilize leftover footage from previous Panther efforts to create TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER. Sellers once again stars as the ineptly heroic Inspector Clouseau who is assigned to investigate when the fabulous Pink Panther diamond is again stolen from the country of Lugash. While flying to England for an important meeting with Scotland Yard Clouseau's plane mysteriously disappears over the Atlantic arousing speculation about the detective. Clouseau's past is dug up by French television reporter Marie Jouvet (Joanna Lumley) who interviews many of the people whose lives the bungling detective has touched--in more ways than one--over the years including Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) Sir Charles Lytton (David Niven) Clouseau's former wife now Lady Lytton (Capucine) and of course the incomparable Kato (Burt Kwouk). In the course of her research Jouvet manages to unearth Clouseau's father who not surprisingly shares many of his son's most familiar characteristics.System Requirements:Running Time: 97 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY Rating: PG UPC: 027616905970 Manufacturer No: 1006396

Some people have entertained this as a tribute to Peter Sellers, and I don't want to judge the motives of Blake Edwards and crew, but for the record I am highly suspect when it is asserted that this wasn't a quick money grab.
The first part of the film is a rehash of some scenes from earlier "Panther" movies and outtakes cleverly edited to try to resemble a story. The truth be told, there are some individually hilarious clips in the first half, which is why I gave the film two stars.
Hands down the best scene in the movie involves a nightmare that Herbert Lom has regarding a birthday present from Clouseau, and his attempts to swim in it. In fact, the only truly great moments in the film all star Lom, the most gifted of any of the "Panther" co-stars. I was also amused that the name of Hercule's (Seller's friend and regular of the series, Graham Stark) boat was "The Moth", of course pronounced "Muuuth" as homage to Sellers.
The second half (after Clouseau's plane disappears...) is devoted to annoyingly self-important reporter Marie Jouvet, played by the pretty but untalented Joanna Lumley, looking for clues about Clouseau's disappearance. She takes the opportunity to interview Dreyfus and Cato, and as well as Sir Charles and Lady Litton (David Niven and the late Capucine, who, the back story reveals are now married), and most embarrassingly of all Clouseau's "father" and nanny. The scene with Clouseau, Senior and "Nanna" is utterly painful to watch and is nothing but a bad caricature of Sellers. The childhood flashbacks which follow are even more wretched, particularly the dismal "Good, Bad, and the Ugly" parody of Clint Eastwood with a cap gun.

I wouldn't nessecarily say this is a BAD film. Just a rushed one. Some of the dialouge is either extremly badly acted (mostly from the mafia bosses wife) or just badly written, as if the writer wrote it when he was sleep walking. A\On the other hand, the Peter Sellers footage, both the unused stuff and the flashbacks, light up the entire film. One scene that is not with Sellers is majorly note worthy:
Dreyfus dreams that Cleuseau put 3,000 pounds of Jello in his swimming pool, then wakes up and dives into the pool cover!
this is not a bad film. It is just not for people who expect it to be the same as the other Panther movies.
P.S. The scene where the Pink Panther diamond is stolen, is the CHEAPEST robbery scene I have ever seen, and it is used AGAIN in "Curse of the Pink Panther"!

I know this movie has received less than stellar reviews by some critics. However, Trail of the Pink Panther (viewed more kindly from the perspective of the inventiveness of the film makers doing a film starring some one who is no longer among us) is filled with the fun of previously unseen footage (some of which is hilarious)- footage that gives lovers of Peter Seller's work the opportunity for a few last laughs and opportunities to enjoy his work (get a load of the French Villa with the teeny dog dragging the lady around). And be sure to watch the out-takes that follow the end of the movie. Such fun. How I miss Clouseau giving someone a "bimp" on the head.

Way back before DVD's made deleted scenes and outtakes must-see experiences for many, Blake Edwards patched together a "new" Panther film from scenes left over from previous films. These scenes would have been great extras on DVDs for other Panther movies. Some of them are quite funny in an outtake kind of way. However, there's no way that this patchwork constitutes a real movie. And the half-hearted attempt at making this a "tribute" to Sellers in the credits comes across as exceptionally false when one considers that Edwards continued to make two dreadful Panther films without Sellers.

Trail of the Pink Panther is not the best Pink Panther movie, but there are some extremely hilarious scenes in the first half. The rest of the movie is devoted to highlights from previous Pink Panther films. Herbert Lom is his usual terrific self, and there are some new characters such as Sellers' father that are very funny. I would recommend this movie to anyone that wants to complete the Pink Panther collection, but since it is not as funny as the others, don't just buy it if you just want to buy any movie. Sellers has been in much funnier films.

Trail of the Pink Panther VHS~ David Niven shows that when the star of the Pink Panther series died,i.e., Peter Sellers; then one can not ignore the obvious and try to cut and paste a movie with leftovers. I honestly first thought that the movie was another in the Pink Panther series: the scenes with Sellers are quite amusing. However, when it comes painfully apparent that this is merely a cut and paste job; then suddenly the movie looses its charm and in fact becomes a bit macabre.

"Trail" is a whole mish-mosh of things. Including outtakes which are pretty hysterical. Peter Sellers was a master. Quite disapointing that this was the first Pink Panther film I saw. The first half of the film was all right, but the second half it's kind of bland. David Niven's role has been reduced to almost a cameo part. He's so old, and Rich Little is dubbing his voice. A little on the bland side at some points, but I can get a few laughs out of it. We'll miss you, Peter!
