The Pink Panther

The Pink Panther

Blake Edwards (1963)

PG Certificate
Fri 4 Nov 4:45am - 6:45am Sky Cinema Comedy


Our Score
Peter Sellers went into this film as character support and came out a star. David Niven is the ostensible lead in a rather dull setting up of the plot, in which the bumbling Inspector Clouseau is called in to prevent the theft of a precious diamond known as the Pink Panther. But Sellers's dud officer was so scene-stealingly comic that director Blake Edwards inserted new scenes. The rest is hysterical history. See it from the beginning: the cartoon title sequence with its Henry Mancini theme is an in-the-pink joy.


The world's most inept police detective, Inspector Clouseau, heads off to Switzerland in search of a suave jewel thief who has purloined a priceless diamond from a princess - but the bumbling officer's every ruse to foil the crime ends in chaos, not least when he is framed for the robbery himself. Blake Edwards' comedy, starring Peter Sellers, David Niven, Capucine, Robert Wagner and Claudia Cardinale.
