Revenge of the Pink Panther

The Pink Panther title has loaned itself to many genres. It was a cartoon series. It was also the titular diamond that is the heart to not one but TWO movie series. This film was the last of the original series to star Peter Sellers. Many consider him to be the heart of the original series and the reason for its success as well. This film however lacked the spark of the previous titles. I’ll admit I did laugh a few times but that was while I was trying to keep myself awake form the mind numbingly dull film. Overall this film lacked the spark o f the previous films. This was the last film to star Peter Sellers who was whom the series was more or less formed around and gave the series some spark. After he dies the series went on but it was more or less a shot in the dark. I would recommend this film only to see Peter Sellers last great performance. Thus said performance was not enough to make this dull drum film entertaining enough to wwake one up on a overcast Wednesday morning. Grade D

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
