50th Anniversary Limited Edition Pink Vinyl LP!

The film director Blake Edwards brought into existence what is probably the best opening sequence to his comic crime film when he commissioned a young enterprising company to produce an animated Pink Panther cartoon film. The creative team came up with the idea of giving the cold, glittering diamond the guise of a cool, pink panther, which leads a bungling detective on a merry dance to the slinky sound of the Panther theme.

Mancini bathes the film location in highly varied musical colors and genres and reveals his love for dance music. The soundtrack includes samba "It Had Better Be Tonight", the shuffle "Champagne and Quail", and the cha-cha "Something For Sellers" as well as the ballad "Royal Blue, sung by a muted trumpet and saxophone. Also incorporated is the delightful sounds of the accordion.
