Blake Edwards's original cut ran 124 minutes, and was submitted to the British Board of Film Censors in 1976. Afterward, the film was cut to 103 minutes. That version was shown in cinemas, on VHS, and on DVD. Most of the scenes cut involved Sellers journey to, and arrival in, in England. The 124 min original cut has never surfaced, but a large chunk of the deleted footage forms the basis of Sellers' scenes in Trail of the Pink Panther (1982). The scenes include: Peter Sellers in the car on the way to the airport, Sellers on a plane to England (excerpts can be seen in the trailer), Sellers meeting the English police at the airport, and an extended version of the existing scene of Sellers going into his apartment near the beginning of the film, with rice flying everywhere.

When Tournier climbs out of the train roof, he is in a toilet with a wall onto a corridor. However, when he is on top of the train, you can see straight through the train, as it is not a train with a corridor, but is instead an "open-plan" model. See more »
The opening credits begin with an animated Inspector Clouseau entering a cinema hall to watch a film. He is constantly beleaguered by the Pink Panther, however, and when the Panther appears on the screen impersonating various features (Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Batman, King Kong, The Sound of Music, Dracula, Singin' in the Rain, and a silent film), the Inspector finally loses his temper and climbs into the screen to get him... ending up trapped inside.

I think "Strikes Again" is the most accomplished of the series.
Clouseau's attempts to enter the castle are just impossible to describe: so hilarious I still laugh whenever I recall the scenes. Not to mention the short conversations with the hotel owner (including the now classic "That is not my dog"), and many many others. This movie's probably the best Peter Seller performance, I think. This guy was such a genius: his accent, his acting and his expressions are all unique and still alive.
I can't understand why anyone would want to make new Pink Panther movies now that Peter Sellers is gone.
