"Of course it won't be easy; nothing worthwhile ever is. That is why I have always failed where others have succeeded." Where do you even begin? So many funny moments in the Pink Panther franchise. Leonard Rossiter sweating in agony while having lead picked from his buttocks always makes me giggle. Takes the shine off it all a bit if he was as much of a shit as he's portrayed to be by Geoffrey Rush.

Shot In The Dark is the best Pink Panther film. I used to enjoy the sequels as a child but nowadays as an adult, I only have time for the first two films. I would love to see a standalone blu-ray of A Shot In The Dark, I wouldn't buy a complete Pink Panther boxset.

I also used to love all of the Pink Panther films but, the more I watch them, the more the shortcomings of the later movies with an ageing Peter Sellers standout and detract from the moments of hilarity or brilliance. As for upgrading to Blu-ray, I'm more than happy with the DVD collection, but brand-new supplementary material might change that.

Recently watched Peter Sellers in Two Way Stretch directed by Robert Day. Classic film.

Apart from 'Being There' and 'The Blockhouse', which are excellent, I find the early Sellers to be his best work. If you haven't seen them you're missing some real gems:

The Ladykillers, The Smallest Show On Earth, The Naked Truth, Carlton Browne Of The F.O., I'm All Right Jack, Battle Of The Sexes, Two-Way Stretch, Never Let Go, The Wrong Arm Of The Law.
