Overview

In the first in a series of detective comedies from director Blake Edwards starring Peter Sellers as bumbling French Inspector Jacques Clouseau, the mishap-prone snoop is actually a supporting player. David Niven stars as Sir Charles Litton, a suave jewel thief known as "The Phantom." Vacationing in a deluxe Alpine resort, Litton's real purpose is to purloin the Pink Panther, a gem of enormous worth owned by a princess Claudia Cardinale. On his trail for years, Inspector Clouseau keeps losing his quarry, perhaps because his wife Simone Capucine is Litton's lover and alerts him every time her husband draws near. Also after the Panther is Litton's American nephew, George Robert Wagner. At a posh costume ball at the princess' villa, the bauble is stolen and Clouseau, still trying to determine the bandit's identity, is framed for the crime himself. The Pink Panther made Sellers and his Clouseau act so popular that the character moved to center stage in a series of farcical sequels.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
One of the most successful franchises of the 1960s and 1970s, director Blake Edwards' Pink Panther movies were a hit from their first installment, in 1964. The film introduced many of the series' hallmarks: Peter Sellers' endearingly inept Inspector Clouseau; the lanky animated pink panther of the credit sequences; and Henry Mancini's instantly recognizable score. Clouseau is a more minor role here than he would be in the future. Sellers' scene-stealing work -- in a part originally intended for Peter Ustinov -- secured him starring status in the subsequent films. His sense of comic timing is unparalleled, in both dialogue delivery and physical humor. Though The Pink Panther isn't as funny as its sequel, A Shot in the Dark (also from 1964), Edwards gives the screwball humor an effortless feel. Such farce was a departure for Edwards, previously best-known for the bittersweet Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) and the somber Days of Wine and Roses (1962). The Pink Panther would be followed by eight sequels of varying casts and quality and a popular television cartoon.

    A Masterpiece of Comedy

    The crowning achievement of Peter Sellers' comedy career. With witty, laugh-out-loud humor, this is a movie the whole family can gather 'round and enjoy. David Niven is charming and irresistible while a young Robert Wagner proves his own comedic talent. If you are looking for that recognizable music of Henry Mancini, look no more. The Pink Panther brings his genius to a new level of creativity and allure. To top it all off, Technicolor brings its brilliance once again to the screen to showcase the beautiful scenery of romantic Europe. Recommended for ages 14 and up for some sexual innuendos. Enjoy Blake Edward's the Pink Panther!
