The opening credits have the Pink Panther stepping out of a cinema screen to conduct a live-action orchestra to his theme music (taking the baton from composer Henry Mancini). He does a superb job... until an animated Inspector Gambrelli mucks things up. See more »
Italian prints (available on DVD in Italy) contains several alternate scenes and different camera angles and sound effects. The alternate scenes are somewhat bawdy and make for a much funnier film. See more »
The "Pink Panther" franchise has spawned a number of movies. The last one in the series is "Son of the Pink Panther." It stars Roberto Benigni as the original Inspector Jacques Clouseau's son. He does a good job stumbling and bumbling his way through the story. It's easy to picture Benigni as a Clouseau-type stumblebum. And a number of characters appear that, although they did not appear in "The Pink Panther," have become familiar in other "Panther" movies. But the last in the line differs somewhat from the original. Its tone isn't quite as lighthearted as the first. It has a lot of violence that seems to taint the movie. Although there are a few good scenes, this movie reminds us all how sorely Peter Sellers is missed.
