No Panther in the title but its the best Pink Panther Film

  • Nov 7, 2011
Blake Edwards film A Shot In The Dark was made before The Pink Panther became a true franchise. There is no mention of The Pink Panther or of Inspector Jacques Clouseau in the title. Yet this is the best of the Pink Panther series. Clouseau is almost a supporting character in the original Pink Panther movie. David Niven is closer to being the star than Peter Sellers. But in A Shot In The Dark Clouseau becomes the star of the film. All of the great mannerisms and Clouseau charateristics first start here in this film. The script is top notch. Sellers was never better as Clouseau. For anyone who has not seen any of The Pink Panther films, and I don't know who that would be, this is the best introduction to the series. I would watch this one first and then follow it with the original film.
