Superb comedy with Peter Sellers as one man show accompanied by an excessive Herbert Lom
After making life intolerable for clumsy Inspector Closeau(Sellers),former Chief Inspector Charles Dreifuss(Herbert Lom)goes nutty and is interned in asylum.One time escaped he tries to destroy the world by means a ray-laser.Besides he hires a group of hit men to kill Jacques Closeau who's gone to England to investigate the abduction a scientific and being helped by British policeman(Colin Blakely,Leonard Rossiter).
This release is the fourth part of Closeau series and an enjoyable comedy starred by the great Peter Sellers as the inept and bungler Inspector of the French Surete.The movie gets entertained and hilarious moments here and there.This slapstick contains funny scenes and never slowdown.Herbert Lom parodying his ¨phantom of opera¨ personage is excellent.Appear as secondaries the usual series as Burt Kwouk,Grahame Stark and a gorgeous Lesley Anne Down.Lively and atmospheric music by habitual Henry Mancini and magnificent opening and ending cartoon titles by Richard Williams. The film is well penned and directed,as always,by Blake Edwards. Several chuckles and gags ,the result of which is one of the funniest from series along with ¨a shot in dark¨,¨return of pink panther,¨revenge of pink panther¨. The flick will like to pink panther series and Peter Sellers fans.This is arguably one of the best pink panther.Two thumbs up.
