    The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu (1980). It's been too long. I remember it as boring. [​IMG]
    Being There (1979). Been too long. I remember liking it.
    Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978). 8/10. a small disappointment overall, but Sellers is still pretty good.
    The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976). 9/10. My fav of the PP flicks. Sellers is hilarious dressed as Einstein.
    Murder by Death (1976). 10/10. Worth it just for the "not let me finish mushroom story" gag. [​IMG] A long time favorite for me and my mom.
    The Return of the Pink Panther (1975). It's hard to keep these straight. Inflatable parrot? If so, 9/10 for Sellers. Film is okay, Sellers is great.
    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1972). 8/10. Nice makeup with the wheat sticking out of his head. I love the film; my fav Alice.
    I Love You, Alice B. Toklas! (1968). 7/10. One of those films I want to love but can't. He's okay but not outstanding.
    A Shot in the Dark (1964). 9/10. A real hoot.
    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). 10/10. His best overall.
    The Pink Panther (1963). 8/10. Not my favorite of the series. He's still adjusting to the role.
