Song From the OST


  • An animated Pink Panther was created for the opening credits because writer and director Blake Edwards felt that the credits would benefit from some kind of cartoon character
  • Claudia Cardinale could not speak English, so Princess Dala’s dialog was dubbed by 20-year-old Gale Garnett.
  • Blake Edwards employed multiple cameras to catch the improvisations he encouraged Peter Sellers to do.
  • In 2010, the Library of Congress selected The Pink Panther (1963) for preservation in the National Film Registry.
  • Blake Edwards enjoyed working with Peter Sellers on this “Panther” movie more than the other ones.
