OTD January 7 - The Pink Panther movie
20 / 36
MGM

1964: The comedy "The Pink Panther," starring David Niven, Peter Sellers, Robert Wagner, Capucine, and Claudia Cardinale, and directed by Blake Edwards, premieres in London, England. In its animated opening credits, the film introduced the cartoon character of the same name. The movie focused on Niven's role as Sir Charles Litton, the infamous jewel thief nicknamed "the Phantom," and his plan to steal the Pink Panther diamond. However, Sellers was so popular that the resulting movie series would be built on his bumbling French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau.
