  • A shot in the dark

    So let's start at the beginning.



    Everyone is familiar with the Henry Mancini original, and what a top tune it is too. So the reason this fine tune is on my radar is that LDJB recently hipped me to the slamming Joe Loss Orchestra version



    Blown away? You bet. I forwarded the clip to a friend in Australia, who also flipped over it, and came back with another cool version which he plays out



    I think it's the mark of a great tune that it can sit so comfortably in different styles of music.
    Anyone care to expand with other versions? Any style, the more the merrier.

        None spring to mind but mention of Mancini covers always puts me in mind of this, he's in there albeit fleetingly:



        and this came up whilst searching, bit surfy too:

          You've touched on one of my obsessions there Treeboy - yes - what a great tune the original Mancini is, but how much better is the version featured in the film itself during the nudist colony scene!!!! Why oh why oh why has this version never been released?



          from 3:16 onwards.

              Worthy of a vinyl carve SS Well spotted. I'm surprised it isn't available as part of some cd soundtrack with extras. Made me want to watch the film again viewing that clip.

                          I've somehow managed to grow up without seeing any of the Pink Panther films, so only associate this tune with the cartoon

                          The music was good, but The Inspector was a bit boring. I preferred The Ant and the Aardvark in my Pink Panther sandwich .

                            You're in for a treat then BC - watch "a shot in the dark" first, my favourite of all - so many fantastic scenes (the letter opener stabbing, the billiards table, the nightclub Russian dancer...) including of course, the nudist colony scene I posted above.

                              I was more a 'Crazy Legs Crane' kind of kid in my rinky dink panther days. I always thought the cartoon inspector was a poor mans 'Mr Rossi'
