The Pink Panther Film Collection DVD Review
SRP: £519.99

Picture

All films are presented anamorphically
and framed at 2.35:1. The Pink
Panther holds plenty of colour but is a
tad soft. There's some print damage
too. A Shot in the Dark looks similar,
although the detail is better and there's
no grain. Strikes Again boasts an
equally clean and colourful transfer,
but things get murky in interiors. The
worst transfer of the five is Revenge,
which suffers from softness and grain.
Trail boasts a detailed, colourful but
grainy transfer.

Sound

There are good and bad things to
report about these DD 5.1 tracks.
While offering admirable clarity and a
warm ambience, The Pink Panther is a
little low on detail. A Shot in the Dark
is better, with good bass and detailed
atmosphere - check out the nudist
party for proof. Strikes Again is more
of the same - good bass, not bad
detail. Revenge likewise refuses to
deviate from the pattern. Trail offers
good bass and a high level of clarity
with effects.

Extras

The only one of these movies with any
serious special features is the first one,
which boasts a trivia track, an audio
commentary from Blake Edwards and
a trailer. There are trailers on the other
movie discs too. The real action
comes on Disc Six, however, which
contains a wealth of extras including
various production documentaries,
a look at the life of Peter Sellers and
an investigation into the origin of the
cartoon. Best of all is a selection of
six of the best of the Pink Panther's
witty animated shorts including the
Oscar-winning The Pink Phink.Five decent movies augmented by a sturdy
selection of extras. A big pink box full of fun
in other words.
