So it was Artisan Home Entertainment that origially released "The Return of the Pink Panther" on DVD as a non-anamorphic widescreen, bare bones disc (with a fairly crappy transfer to boot.) As we all know, MGM released a fantastic box set of "Pink Panther" films just last month with new 16x9 transfers, 5.1 audio and some decent supplements. With Lions Gate Entertainment buying Artisan, I thought I'd give them a call and ask if they were thinking of re-issuing "The Return of the Pink Panther" as a special edition DVD in the near future (it really does need a new transfer.) I heard back from them today and I was informed that there are currently "no plans" for a special edition but that "you never know" as future plans may change. Anyway, I just thought you guys would like to know. If you would like a SE, I'd suggest writing to Lions Gate and letting them know.
