Of course, 95 is a good run, and I'm sure Mr. Lom was pleased with this, as long as he was in good health, as I would hope, and would like to think.
I just saw "Count Dracula" from 1970 with Christopher Lee, Klaus Kinski, and Herbert Lom the other day. Aside from this film, so far I've only seen Mr. Lom in his Pink Panther films, but he is one of the most memorable actors in them! And Herbert is most certainly one of the best assets of the films! RIP Mr. Lom, and thank you so much.
Thank you very much for this alert! I wish I had checked this site prior to this new special airing...and/or read the newspaper list I had of the 2011 Christmas Specials to air on TV. But I didn't get around to looking at the list until it was too late, I'm sorry to say
I only took so long to comment because I wanted to think of fitting words worthy of Blake Edwards...but in short, all I can say is I'm sorry he's gone, my thoughts are with his family and friends, and I'm thankful for what he gave us...he left an amazing legacy!
From Wikipedia (it's there as of this writing at least) about this show:
Season 2 (2011) The Pink Panther and Pals will get a second season, with a new Change, Eddie Garvar that voice Aardvark will replace by Frank Welker as a new voice of the Aardvark and Stephanie Morgenstern will voice Ant's Girlfriend.
Without rewatching any of the openings before my vote, I voted for Return because I recall that one being the best at making me think, "a great movie is coming!" with the style it had. But Strikes Again may well have been my vote if I re-watched, because even now I know it is at least a very close second! Those two, to me, are the most memorable after all these years. I look forward to watching them all in order - perhaps over the summer.
You're very welcome Clouseau! Thanks for your feedback! I was most surprised to see "What A Fool Believes" on an album with "Punk" in the title! You are right about their Clouseau, and the pointless "Pink Panther Punk Pink Panther" vocals on the Pink Panther Theme.
With the songs Clouseau wasn't on, I was thinking, "What does this have to do with the Pink Panther?" And then I remembered, "Oh yeah, he's on drums. They said that early on."
I'm going to put "It's Punk" on a mix CD for a party one day - in the middle of "normal" songs See if anyone notices.
