Trail Of The Pink Panther


(out of 5)

Strictly for fans of . In this Pink Panther comedy,  stars as an optimistic television journalist who is searching all of Paris for the whereabouts of the missing Inspector Clouseau. Interviewing his friends and associates (mostly a Who’s Who of actors from the previous films, including , whose illness required celebrity impersonator Rich Little to dub his dialogue, and ), she is given examples of Clouseau’s genius and perhaps a few of his slapsticky downsides as well. Basically, it’s an excuse to show outtakes and unused footage from previous Panther movies with a lame story surrounding it (Sellers had died a few years before the film was made). Blake Edwards’ intentions are well-placed, as this great comedian deserves any manner of tribute, but this particular effort fails to live up to its potential. Best to stick with any of the original films instead.
