Revenge of the Pink Panther - Peter Sellers (1978) - Clipping from August 1978

Here is a small snippet from the Peninsula Group's in-house magazine from the late 1970's. The text explains it all but I thought it deserved a wider audience seeing as the magazine it's in in nearly 40 years old and this may be one of the only remaining copies.
It looks like the film crew had no expense spared if the clipping means that all 96 of them got to stay in the Peninsula Hotel! Given the use of the Excelsior Hotel in the film, I had just assumed everyone had stayed there. Anyway, a nice bit of film history rediscovered.

You can see my Revenge of the Pink Panther posts here. Of course the Peninsula Hotel itself has been used multiple time as a film location, another rather tenuous link is that Julie Andrews starred in the Sound of Music and its director, Robert Wise, was filming The Sand Pebbles in Hong Kong when he found out the former had won the Best Picture Oscar at the 1966 Academy Awards.
