Though there are occasional exceptions, generally the best that comes out of a remake is a renewed appreciation of the original movie. The Peter Sellers edition of the MGM Movie Legends Collection contains both an example of the rule and one of the exception.

First in the four disc set (chronologically) is The Pink Panther, the first movie with Sellers as Inspector Clouseau, this time on a seeming vacation at an Alpine ski resort. He is actually out to catch the Phantom, a notorious cat burglar, who is after a gem called The Pink Panther owned by a princess. David Niven plays the classy thief, with Robert Wagner as his nephew. Though he has a major role, this is principally a Niven movie. Interestingly, just as people would incorrectly associate the name Frankenstein with the monster instead of the scientist (or that Nick Charles was the Thin Man), many would assume that Clouseau was the Pink Panther. This is a role Sellers would reprise several times and despite the efforts by Steve Martin in a remake, Sellers IS Clouseau.

Second is What's New Pussycat, in which Sellers is once again in a supporting role, this time as the psychiatrist treating Peter O'Toole, a man who attracts women too easily. When he finally falls in love with a woman, his efforts at commitment keep getting derailed by a series of beautiful women. Sellers is not so much interested in treatment but trying to use O'Toole's talents to snag some lovers of his own. This movie, which also has Ursula Andress, Romy Schneider and, in his first movie, Woody Allen (who also wrote the screenplay), is more than a bit dated, but it picks up a lot towards the finish.

Casino Royale is the movie that is much superior in its 2006 remake.

This is a great cross section of Peter Sellers' films. Peter Sellers is well known as Inspector Clouseau as he first appeared in THE PINK PANTHER. My favorite here is WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT even though Sellers is not the main character. Peter Sellers character is that of the longhaired psychoanalyst Dr. Fritz Fassbender who is crazier than his patients. The office visit scene with Sellers and patient Peter O'Toole is a classic. Sellers' character in that film just so off-the-wall. THE PARTY is very. It surrounds around Sellers as a Hollywood extra mistakenly invited to a who's who wild house party. Sellers really makes this film work. Sellers gets top billing in 1967's CASINO ROYALE filmed as a James Bond spoof rather than the genuine article. Essentially Sellers is chosen as a replacement (one of several) for the genuine James Bond (David Niven) who is now in retirement to play and defeat Le Chiffre (Orson Welles) at baccarat at the Casino Royale. Sellers' role is actually small but still memorable. The laughs in CASINO ROYALE are hit and miss in this mixed bag with several directors at the helm that really lacks cohesion but still manages to amuse.

This set of films contains excellent scores from two brilliant composers. The inimitable Henry Mancini scored both THE PINK PANTHER and THE PARTY. Burt Bacharach, near the top of his game for capturing that wild innovative 60's sound scored both WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT and CASINO ROYALE which featured great recorded tunes for Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield and Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

Peter Sellers' greatness as a comedic and dramatic actor is shown here, with the bumbling actor who destroys a film and then a party in The Party, the marvelous spoof of the Bond movies in Casino Royale, the various plays on words and throughout them all the slapstick, which not all actors can get away with it... This is a good collection of great movie actors, including Niven and O'Toole, and the marvelous US and European actresses that intersperse these films. Mostly fairly good comedy. Unfortunately some of the color in What's New Pussycat is off, and the sound is not always good. Some of these also seem to be missing lines. Are we editing movies for political correctness? The Pink Panther is a work of genius...

Despite the flaws in the set, all in all, pretty good value for the money.

Love all these Sellers films and recommend watching them if you can. But the particular pack of discs I purchase had one defective disc and would not play. "Casino Royale" However despite not being able to view that movie, I was able to return my purchase and received my money back no problem.

Give this man a script, good or bad, and he can work miracles. One of the, what I call, subtle actors that can take a line or a look and turn it into unbelievable proportions of perfection. This DVD collection showcases his comedic timing, which is up there with the best of them. Born with a face that can turn from stone to any emotional arena required, he is undoubtedly one of England's treasures and I am so glad he made it over to Hollywood. I recommend any Peter Sellers movie for those looking for an in-depth actor with a heart of gold to the sublime antics of slapstick beyond the silent-era masters.

At his best. My sixteen year old son and I watched The Party one evening on tv, and he was laughing to the point of tears. He loved it so much, it made his Christmas list. The bonus here is that it's a quadrupel-feature. Sellers at his best!
