The history of film comedy would have been much altered if Peter Ustinov had stayed in the role of Jacques Clouseau, the bumbling French police inspector in The Pink Panther. But Ustinov dropped out, the role went to Peter Sellers, and a classic character was born: suspicious, blundering, with a pompous little mustache and a sometimes impenetrable accen… More >>

  1. Seriously, I love comedies. But this movie is flat as far as comedy goes. (…) People love the movie, not the comedy. They talk about the music, the scenery, the leading men and sexy ladies, the timelessness, but what about the jokes, the gags. There were none worth talking about. If you want a movie that brings back the memories of hollywood villians and sexy ladies, okay buy it. If you want a real comedy that will bust up your viewers, try Young Frankenstein.

  3. I had the clever idea to compare this version with the new movie.

    What a mistake. The original pink panther is an absolute bore. There is really no story. Essentially, Peter Sellers spends much of the movie trying to get his wife in bed.

    Major parts of the story make no sense. Don’t waste your time.

  5. The Phantom is a notorious cat burglar who robs jewels from the rich. He’s become the passion of Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers), a bumbling detective in Paris. He’s the foremost expert on the man.

    Which is why Clouseau takes a trip to a Swiss ski resort when Princess Dala (Claudia Cardinale) does. The princess is the current owner of the renown Pink Panther Diamond, a jewel sure to be a target for The Phantom.

    When Clouseau and his wife (Capucine) arrive at the resort, they meet Sir Charles Lytton (David Niven) and his nephew George (Robert Wagner). But what Clouseau doesn’t know is that plans to steal the diamond are already in motion. Can he figure out what they are and who the villains truly are?

    I’d heard about this movie all my life. After enjoying the remake, I was even more interested in seeing the original. I needed not have bothered.

    Let’s start with the fact that this supposed to be a comedy. There were two funny scenes, one of which started off funny but went on way too long. The other of which was way too late in the movie to redeem it.

    Then there’s the caper plot. This isn’t a true mystery, which is fine. But the caper was boring. It stalls for about the middle hour. I mean, nothing really happens. This movie could have easily been cut by half an hour without losing a thing. Heck, the musical number added nothing to the film to start. And don’t even get me started on the horrid ending or the illogical holes in the plot.

    I’ll stick with the modern version of the franchise. This one was a big waste of time.
