    I know there's another thread on this but I couldn't find it on the search engine.

    Listings for this box set state the films contained as -

    THE PINK PANTHER
    A SHOT IN THE DARK
    THE PINK PANTHER STRIKES AGAIN
    THE REVENGE OF THE PINK PANTHER
    THE TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER

    But what's happened to THE RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER ?
    Surely that's more worthy of inclusion than TRAIL, which is a dismal cash-in made after Seller's death ?
    The extras on the bonus disc sound great and - despite not being a rabid fan of the movies - I was pretty much sold on this set. But the absence of RETURN (one of the better entries) might be a dealbreaker for me.
    Anyone know if these specs are accurate and, if so, why ?

    IIRC "Return..." was released by another studio than MGM, that would explain its exclusion... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Isn't there a current region 1 box-set with all the above mentioned titles and "Revenge Of The Pink Panther" replacing the "Trail Of The Pink Panther" disc? I believe it also includes the 8-page booklet and all the titles are featured in widescreen. Although I can't seem to find it on Amazon.com, I am certain I've seen it before and have had it on my wishlist for a long while. The extra features on this new UK set are making me contemplate the purchase though... Does anyone know if they are featured on a seperate disc because if so, I might just purchase it and than resell the set on Ebay minus the bonus disc... unless of course one of you would like to sell me the bonus disc directly...

    Does anyone know what the 6 featured bonus shorts are?


    I hope they're not rehashed from the Jet Pink cartoon collection...
