Did You Know?

Trivia:
The film doesn't mention the Pink Panther diamond. 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 included "Pink Panther" in the title.See more »
Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: Clouseau hits himself with the vase and stumbles, causing a gun in the rack to fire. The sound of a bullet ricocheting is heard, but the doctor takes buckshot out of Quinlan's behind.See more »
Quotes:
Clouseau:Well now, I expect you're all wondering why I asked you here

Hilarity and good fun, 17 November 2002
Author: InzyWimzy from Queens, NY

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.
