    It's not surprising the Panther got his own cartoon series.

    How does Mancini hold up against Barry, Barbel?

    He's less varied, for one thing, but just as imaginative.

    The later title sequences became a bit more elaborate (The Pink Panther Strikes Again is probably my favourite, all those movie references) but the original remains a terrific piece of work.

    Yeah, one must appreciate the creativity!

    The titles are my absolute highlights in all of the PP movies!

    The incidental music during scenes such as this opening robbery is an unfortunate omission off the soundtrack album, which is largely loungey party music. I'm not sure if there are any expanded soundtrack releases out there.

    Not to my knowledge

    That cartoon series meant that as a kid I got to listen to the Mancini theme once a week at Saturday tea-time till it was indelibly implanted in my brain, back to back with the 'spy style' theme to 'A Shot In The Dark'.

    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.

    The young Robert Wagner is cool and stylish

    Was Capucine dubbed, too?

    Capucine is a lovely looking lady. The inspector did well.

    It took me a long time to pronounce "Capucine" correctly! ๐Ÿค”

    Edit- when I was a boy I said "Cappusseene" rather than "Capuchinay"

    Capucine looks so 60s in her disguise for the liaison with the fence.

    love the globe!

    The globe gag is a standout moment, which is also memorably reworked in A Shot in the Dark.

    How can a Paris inspector afford Saville Row suits?

    From the globe onwards Sellers owns the movie

    Enjoyable ski action in this film...although not quite up to Willy Bogner levels of extraordinariness.

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 33,218Chief of Staff

    David Niven, smoother than snow falling off ice.

    I wonder how they managed to set up those fireplaces on those sets!

    That instrumental of 'Meglio Stasera' makes such a cool, upbeat soundtrack for the Cortina skiiing.
