A new widescreen release of The Return Of The Pink Panther is due on January 10th. As fans of the Pink Panther series are aware, the previous release was pretty bad as far as picture and audio quality are concerned. Does anyone have any details on this new release? It is priced as low as $9.99 but details are not available on the sites I checked, including Best Buy, Circuit City and Amazon. Hopefully, it will be anamorphic with a remastered sound track in Dolby Digital 5.1, as the previously released MGM box set of the other Pink Panther movies was. After an additional search, it appears that this new Universal release is anamorphic wide screen with Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound. It has to be a vast improvement over the previous release. And at $9.99 how can one go wrong?
