Henry Mancini:The Pink Panther and The Return of the Pink Panther Soundtrack

Henry Mancini's unforgettable soundtracks to two of director Blake Edwards' 'Pink Panther' films teamed together, 1964's 'Pink Panther' & 1975's 'Return Of The Pink Panther'. A combined total of 25 tracks. This is Henry Mancini at his best. The music from these two films is first rate and very enjoyable and includes many gems. "The Greatest Gift" is a beautiful, haunting ballad and the "Return of the Pink Panther" number is a great, seductive variation on the Pink Panther theme. Of course the original "Pink Panther Theme" is included as well in all it's glory.

the original movie trailer itself is hilarious!

..and this scene from "The Return..."
