During the animated opening credits, the credit for the Hal David song "The Greatest Gift" is the first credit seen after the title, occurring between the star and supporting cast credits. In the 1970s, songwriting credits usually appeared about midway though the opening credits and usually were paired with the film's composer credit; it was unusual for a song credit to be singled out in such a way.

I was very fortunate to find this film on DVD recently, which is next to impossible these days. Those of us who purchased the box set know that this gem was missing from the collection due to Artisan Entertainment holding onto the rights for DVD release. Try to find it on Amazon and they'll tell you it's out of stock and you need to visit e-bay. Bids are as high as $100 for a new copy. I almost gave in to buying one until I visited a record shop one day and--to my extraordinary surprise--there it was parked behind the box set. I was thrilled. I hadn't seen this movie in years.
To say the least, it sent me into a fit of giggles almost immediately. Peter Sellers and Blake Edwards ware among the best, modern cinematic comedic team. Nearly ten years had passed since their last collaboration on "A Shot in the Dark." Clearly, Edwards and co-writer Frank Waldman had plenty of time to dream up this endless laundry list of gags, one-liners and Clouseau mishaps (the scene with the vacuum is priceless).
If you have Showtime and Comcast On-Demand, you can find it on there this month. Check it out!
