Of all the movies MGM/Fox have, they chose to release this one?

Doh. Just got updated info from Fox.

It's the 1963 version. Some retailers listed it as the 2006 version.

I've updated the database...

They aired this on HDNet last weekend and it looked very good. Nice clear print with heaps of detail.

And Pete.... there's a mistake in the news story:

Starring Peter Sellars as Inspector Clouseau, the Blake Edwards-directed comedy classic will debut on Blu-ray January 27.
It's "Sellers", not "Sellars"

No way, funnily enough, the old Pink Panther movies have been some of my highest wants in HD. Hopefully the other Pink Panthers aren't far behind.

Yeah, really... GREAT choice. A lame, remake of a title that has ZERO purpose for being in High Def.

Focking unbeliavable. At least release the old ones that were actually funny. Even then.... UGGGH!

This film Peter Sellers isn't the main actor in it. It's David Niven who's in the starring role.

I don't agree with this at all. While Niven gets the lead credit and was the focus of original publicity for the film, it's obvious that Sellers completely stole the show. Niven's "lead" status was more marketing (and paycheck) than anything else. Sellers is clearly the real star of the film.
