The Pink Panther (19-Dec-1963)

Director: Blake Edwards

Writers: Maurice Richlin; Blake Edwards

Music: Henry Mancini

Producer: Martin Jurow

Keywords: Crime/Comedy, Pink Panther

Notorious jewel thief known only as The Phantom attempts to steal the largest diamond in the world, The Pink Panther, named for its panther-shaped flaw. Trying to catch him is the comically inept Inspector Clouseau of the French Sureté. More sophisticated than the later slapstick entries in the Pink Panther series, this is a caper wrapped in a bedroom farce. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score. Entered 2010 into the National Film Registry.
