i got up extra early this morning, and i picked up my copy of The Pink Panther (2006) at Wal Mart this morning on the way to work...
there were three ways to buy it:
all by itself
in a "2 movies for the price of 1" package with Steve Martin's Roxanne
with an "exclusive" CD featuring 5-6 songs on it (including Beyonce's "Check On It")
i got the 2nd option there, because Roxanne was on my list of movies i wanted to eventually buy anyway, and the CD didn't look that appealing to me (though it did have a picture of a pink diamond on the front)...
Yeah I probably would have gone for that option. Where would you suggest is the best palce to find the other films like COTPP, IC, TSOTPP? I think I read somewhere that you had trouble finding them. Is Fye likely to sell them?
i dunno if FYE would have them or not... we don't have one around here, so i never looked there... there was a local drugstore that had some of them, but i didn't find out about that til i finally gave up and ordered mine off Amazon.com... i was surprised Wal Mart didn't even have them!
The Unknown Peter Sellers is on the Region 2 Film Collection - isn't it on the R1 version as well?
no, it's not! that's interesting!
EDIT: here's all that's on the R1 bonus disc:
The Pink Panther Story (2003) Behind the Feline: The Cartoon Phenomenon (2003) Classic Cartoons: - The Pink Phink - Pink Plunk Plink - Psychedelic Pink - The Ant and the Aardvark - The Inspector - The Great DeGaulle Stone Operation
The Pink Panther Story (2003) That's Panthertainment (1978) The Unknown Peter Sellers (2000) The Commercial Peter Sellers - three Barclays Bank commercials - three TWA commercials - TWA commercials: behind the scenes featurette Behind the Feline: The Cartoon Phenomenon (2003) Classic Cartoons: - Pink Phink - Pink Plunk Plink - Sink Pink - Dial P for Pink - Pickled Pink - Inspector, The Great Degaulle Stone Operation Shots in the Dark (photo gallery)
"If I were my father, I'd have you tortured." "No. If you were your father, I doubt very much if I would have kissed you."
well looking through the other discs, the Shots in the Dark photo gallery was apparently broken up for the R1 release, as that segment is listed on every disc except the bonus disc, along with each film's theatrical trailer... TPP63 is the only other disc that has something more... it has a director's commentary with Blake Edwards, and it has a "trivia track" that's basically where a lot of pop up windows appear while you watch the movie...
sounds like R1 got gipped!
oh well... i'm still happy to have the movies... and at least i have my own copy of The Unknown Peter Sellers now...
i do wish there was a way i could obtain a copy of just that bonus disc from the R2 release, though, so i could see the commercials and That's Panthertainment... ...i wonder why in the world they didn't include them in the R1 release...
