The comic genius of Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers meet again in The Return of the Pink Panther. The "Pink Panther Diamond" is stolen with only one clue left behind - a white glove, the trademark of the world-renowned jewel thief, The Phantom (Christopher Plummer). Believed to be retired, he immediately becomes the chief suspect on Inspector Clouseau's list. Wanting to clear his name, The Phantom sets out to find the real thief and sends Clouseau bumbling along on a false trail. Inspector Clouseau's antics finally push his boss, Chief Inspector Dreyfus, over the edge and he sets out to murder Clouseau to be rid of him once and for all! It's non-stop laughs in this timeless comedy masterpiece, hailed as the funniest in The Pink Panther series.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Peter Sellers returned has Clouseau in this after being replaced in the film before.
This is the only film that was not done by MGM, that's why its not part of the normal Pink Panther film collections & Some people are not aware it even exists.
In it the Pink Panther diamond has been stolen again & the bumbling Inspector Clouseau is on the case.
This film has some real hilarious moments. The first time we saw it, we had some genuine hard belly laughs.
Followed by a 5th film, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, also hilarious funny.
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.
Hopefully the original studio will see fit to give this movie a decent transfer in the future.
You have to understand, it doesn't matter where he is or what the circumstances, Clouseau walks into a room and literally manages to destroy it within minutes. This leads to some very , very funny moments (my favorite being a scene involving a hapless bellboy, a sauna and some VERY slippery shoes).Read more ›
