A comedy featuring the brilliant Peter Sellers and the always good David Niven and yet, this film hasn't aged well. I'm sure in 1964, it was probably groundbreaking, but in 2015 it just doesn't work. Peter Sellers randomly falling down just doesn't count as comedy anymore. This film is average at best.

Far more witty and subtle than the increasingly ham-fisted sequels and ill advised remakes, this is a pleasing caper movie, all the better for the presence of the debonair David Niven.

While, not quite the goofy Clouseau centered farce that the series developed into, it's still full of clever moments, crazy mixups and some solid slapstick. Good crime comedy.

Some of the absurdist humor in this slapstick comedy wouldn't work if it weren't for the perfect comic timing and characterization of Peter Sellers. The man truly was a comic genius. The bumbling Inspector Clousseau is a memorable part of film canon; the two remakes this film spawned, not so much.

The film has a problem and that is simply not enough Sellers. When he is on the screen the movie lights up because he is very funny even though he is not yet using the trademark over the top accent. He is great in all his scenes, and makes those scenes work. No one else is particularly funny and they many times try to act a little too zany, which does not work out nearly well enough. It is clear why in the sequels they dropped every one else and kept Sellers.

Our Daily Free Stream: Blake Edwards - The Pink Panther (1963). Zum Geburtstag von Peter Sellers! - Schnell: Wieviele Schauspieler probierten sich in der Rolle des Inspector Clouseau aus? - Es waren insgesamt fünf in neun Clouseau Filmen. Im ersten Teil ist Clouseau (Peter Sellers) auf der Jagd nach einem Dieb namens The Phantom. Ein Meisterdieb, der in besten Kreisen operiert. Die Spur führt nach Cortina d'Ampezzo, wo David Niven, Claudia Cardinale, Capucine und Robert Wagner eingeführt werden. Cardinale spielt die Prinzessin Dala (offensichtlich diente Farah Palahvi, Mode-Ikone und Frau des persischen Schahs) als Vorbild. 1964 war noch David Niven der Star des Films, was sich in den folgenden Teilen ändern sollte. Denn das Publikum liebte vor allem Sellers, wie er über die Leinwand stol...
