In the slapstick comedy, The Return Of The Pink Panther, Peter Sellers reprieves his role as the bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau. The priceless Pink Panther diamond is once again stolen. Feeling certain that the heist is the work of the suave Phantom, the inept Closeau sets out to investigate in the country of Lugash. Tracked by Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Lom), Clouseau unleashes crime-busting chaos across all Europe in comical search of the jewel thief. Packed with verbal and physical slapstick, this is one of the funniest movies in this cherished series.
When compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 22, the non-anamorphic DVD, viewed in component video, exhibits images that are only slightly sharper with minor improvements in clarity. Otherwise, the picture is lacking sharpness and detail. Aliasing problems are apparent throughout as well as minor pixelization and artifacts. Colors are more naturally rendered in saturation, though dated. Overall, the DVD image quality
The DVD packaging has miscredited the soundtrack as Dolby
Reason #36 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply the best A/V magazine available. No other magazine includes such a comprehensive discussion of developments and potential developments in the field, as well as a detailed analysis of systems and products available. Widescreen Review provides thorough and easy-to-follow “how to” sections in building and setting up home theatre and is the definitive authority on quality DVDs. No other magazine can beat all that. Kudos to Widescreen Review! I will never stop my subscription.
