The title of this film is misleading, as the "Pink Panther" - the large diamond featured in the first Clouseau Pink Panther movies, The Pink Panther (1963) and The Return of the Pink Panther (1975) - is not featured (or even mentioned) in this film. By the 1970s, the name "Pink Panther" had become so synonymous with Inspector Clouseau - and the animated panther featured in the opening credits - that all future Clouseau films would include "Pink Panther" in the title.

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 »
Marty the Mugger:
You have several of the world's greatest criminal minds right here, in this very room.
Bruce the Knife:
Yeah, why don't we take care of it ourselves?
Because you wouldn't stand a chance.
[Crims murmur disbelief]
You don't know Clouseau.
Tournier (a.k.a. Tony the bank robber):
He can't be that good.
Good? Ha, he's not good, he's terrible; he's the worst. There's not another man like him anywhere in the world. Compared to Clouseau this doomsday machine, it's just a mere water pistol.

The closing credits begin with an animated Inspector Clouseau swimming (from the film's end, where a naked Clouseau and Olga and a clothed Cato plunge into water - animated Clouseau is clothed however). At first the Pink Panther chases him like a shark (complete with the Jaws (1975) tune and poster image), but the Inspector realizes the ruse and chases him for the rest of the credits. See more »
Inspector Clouseau...Commissioner Dreyfuss...Gerald Ford. What don't you have in this movie?
Funny film to watch again and again. The chemistry is perfect between Peter Sellers and Herbert Lom. There are so many jokes and laughs throughout, I usually pick up something new after each viewing, especially Clouseau's accent. The castle scene with the dentist visit has got to be one of the funniest moments recorded on film. You'd swear there really was nitrous oxide in the room. I always get a chuckle from the apartment scene in the start. I'd never knew how funny the use of slow motion could be. Timing of the jokes are crazier than a set of "parallels". Add Mancini's music which seems to fit each scene quite nicely, thank you.
Probably my favorite of the Pink Panther movies (next to A Shot in the Dark), you have to love Peter Seller's portrayal of the "hit and miss" wonder named Clouseau. Plus, Lesley Anne Down looks great as Olga and makes me appreciate a nice fur coat. Definitely a keeper.
