Show Notes:

The Pink Panther:

Glamorous, romantic jewel heist caper. Originally intended as a vehicle for David Niven, with Peter Ustinov as Clouseau. Peter Sellers stepped as the pompous policeman, instead of Ustinov. A legend was born and so began a series of movies which included:

 

A Shot in The Dark:

The Inspector falls for a girl who is beautiful..but is she innocent? Notable for the first appearances in the series by Herbert Lom and Burt Kwouk. A solid thriller /murder/mystery/romance..it just happens to also be very funny.

The Pink Panther Strikes Again:

Sellers returns and takes on his old boss..now a super-villain who wants world domination and the death of Clouseau. Lesley Anne Down plays a lovely Russian agent. There is a hilarious montage where our hero takes out the world’s top assassins, all by accident, including a midget Robin Hood.

Steve Martin Pink Panther remake:

Steve Martin Pink Panther remake, 2: 

The Life and Death of Peter Sellers: Biopic for HBO. Geoffrey Rush played Sellers. Features Charlize Theron, Nigel Havers, Stephen Fry, John Lithgow, Stanley Tucci and Emily Watson. 

Steve McQueen will always be the King of Cool. He is also the Cooler King from The Great Escape. But his coolest role of all? THOMAS CROWN!

Pierce Brosnan has played both James Bond and Thomas Crown and would have made a great Clouseau.
