The Pink Panther


As a kid I was always watching reruns of old movies on t.v. I really thought the Pink Panther series was funny- but, I don't think that I saw the original Pink Panther movie until I was in my twenties.

1963's The Pink Panther has everything you could want to help keep you entertained: the hilarious Peter Sellers, the dashing David Niven, a young Robert Wagner, the classical beauty Capucine, the pouty Claudia Cardinale, elegant costumes for Capucine and Claudia Cardinale by Yves Saint-Laurent, a catchy and entertaining musical performance by Fran Jeffries (who I think Lady Miss Kier of Deee-lite bears a strong resemblance to), and a costume party filled with over the top costumes!
