El regreso de la pantera rosa
The Return of the Pink Panther
“The movie is a disaster,” actor Peter Sellers assured its producers after filming The Pink Panther (1963). He did not see it: the first stage of a highly successful saga, in addition to the beginning of a tortuous relationship of several twists and turns between the actor and his director, Blake Edwards. The Return of the Pink Panther is the third and best film in the franchise, and it brings together all the attributes that would make the films of Inspector Jacques Clouseau famous: high-flying timing for the celebration of physical comedy and constant homage to his admired Laurel and Hardy, with a fair dose of absurdity and a bit of action, all framed in the elegant and colorful shots by the director of The Party. And, of course, the mythical melodies of Henry Mancini embellishing everything.
Blake Edwards was born in the US in 1922. He was a director, screenwriter, producer and actor. He took his first steps in radio and television before starting to work in films. Some of the titles in his extensive filmography are A Shot in the Dark (1964), The Party (1968) and Victor Victoria (1982). He won an Honorary Oscar in 2004 and died in 2010.
