Trivia:
Blake Edwards' 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 cut scenes involved Sellers' journey to, and arrival in, England. The 124-minute original cut has never surfaced, but a large chunk of the deleted footage was used 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 are in the trailer), Sellers meeting the English police at the airport, and an extended version of Sellers going into his apartment near the beginning of the film, with rice flying everywhere. Deleted scenes involving Harvey Korman's character "Balls" also ended up in Trail of the Pink Panther (1982).See more »

Pretty fair., 28 May 2000
Author: gridoon

This fifth "Pink Panther" entry is a practically plotless collection of gags. Such comedies are always inevitably uneven, and this one is no exception. It contains at least one scene than never fails to bring tears of laughter to my eyes (the interrogation at the house of the kidnapped scientist, with Sellers at his best) and a wonderful animated title sequence, and it remains generally amusing throughout. But it does have its share of lulls, too, and some overly predictable sight gags that aren't likely to impress even the kids. Sometimes this is a very funny film, but it misses the mark now and then, as well.
