THE PINK PANTHER MARATHON
November 29, 2019  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 10:00 a.m. ET

 
TCM realizes that, the day after Thanksgiving, lots of people have the day off, and may want to spend a few hours entertained by their TV sets. Presto: an all-day marathon of Pink Panther movies. The best ones, the ones with Peter Sellers starring as Inspector Jacques Clouseau, the role that he made his own (even though others adopted it after he quit the Blake Edwards comedy film franchise). And the fun here starts early, with the two 1964 comedy gems, The Pink Panther and A Shot in the Dark, running back to back, beginning at 10 a.m. ET. In the first film, Sellers and his character were intended as comic second bananas, supporting more serious stars David Niven and Robert Wagner. But by the second film, the focus was completely on Sellers, and with good reason. Make that great reason.
