The Return of the Pink Panther (R1) in January
Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Return of the Pink Panther for 10th January 2006 priced at $14.98 SRP. The comic genius of Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers meet again in The Return of the Pink Panther. The “Pink Panther Diamond” is stolen with only one clue left behind – a white glove, the trademark of the world-renowned jewel thief, The Phantom (Christopher Plummer). Believed to be retired, he immediately becomes the chief suspect on Inspector Clouseau’s list. Wanting to clear his name, The Phantom sets out to find the real thief and sends Clouseau bumbling along on a false trail. Inspector Clouseau’s antics finally push his boss, Chief Inspector Dreyfus, over the edge and he sets out to murder Clouseau to be rid of him once and for all!
This barebones release is timed to ride the wave of publicity from the 2006 movie incarnation starring Steve Martin. Presented in 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with English DD2.0 Stereo audio and optional English, French and Spanish subtitles, there are no extras.
