TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER (1982 U.K. U.S.) D/W/P: BLAKE EDWARDS W: FRANK and TOM WALDMAN/GEOFFREY EDWARDS P: TONY ADAMS
In this seemingly GAME OF DEATH-inspired cash-in, Joanna Lumley is a reporter who interviews people like David Niven and Burt Kwouk about Inspector Closeau (the late Peter Sellers who`s seen in "flashback" footage). A stand in for Sellers has his head wrapped in bandages in a contrived attempt to make it all seem normal. Sellers fans were appalled (despite some admittedly great "best of" footage), but had to put up with CURSE OF THE PINK PANTHER the following year as well. With Robert Loggia, Capucine, Richard Mulligan, Harvey Korman, Herbert Lom, Ronald Fraser, Leonard Rossiter, Graham Stark, Denise Crosby, Marne Maitland, William Hootkins, Arthur Howard, Liz Smith, Dudley Sutton and the voice of Rich Little. Lynn Frederick (Sellers` widow) sued and won.
