Beverly Hills, CA: Mirisch G.E. Productions / United Artists, 1964. Collection of vintage photographs and ephemera from the 1963 film, including four reference photographs, one internal studio-issued photograph of the proposed artwork for the one sheet poster, one stapled gathering of press release material, and a flyer advertising the film's German release.

The first film in the classic, wildly successful "Pink Panther" series, about an inspector's botched attempts to catch a notorious jewel thief before he steals a priceless diamond.

Set in Switzerland, shot on location in France, Italy, and California.

Photographs: 8 x 10 inches. Fine.

Press gathering: 8.5 x 11 inches. Very Good plus.

Flyer: 12.25 x 4 inches. Very Good, folded once vertically, as issued, with a small dampstain and accompanying tear at the top of the fold.

National Film Registry.
