This movie and Heaven Can Wait (1978) marked the return to Hollywood movie making for actress Dyan Cannon who had been in a four year hiatus, her last feature films having been in 1974. Cannon once said: "It's so much fun filming a Pink Panther. We just laugh our way through each day's shooting". See more »

[Philippe Douvier just set up a trap for Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau and invited him to it with a phone call]
Simone Le Gree:
That's so obvious, he's bound to think it's a trap...
Yes, or it's so obvious that he's bound to think it can't be a trap.
It's so obvious, it's bound to be a trap.
That is why you'll never be a great detective, Cato. It's so obvious that it could not possibly be a trap.

A bit of an improvement over the last Panther film--and the last Panther film worth watching
Be forewarned--no matter what you see, this is THE last Pink Panther movie. Shortly after this film, Peter Sellers died and the studio had the nerve to try to continue the franchise! On the first, we have a female cop take on the case and interview all the characters from the previous films. In the second of these awful films (THE TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER), we find outtakes and clips from the previous Panther films being strung together with a tenuous plot. In the third, Roberto Begnini stars as Clouseau's son (a pretty lame way to continue the series). And just recently Steve Martin (whose career really seems in the dumps during the last few years) reprises the role. Uggh! Just let it go, folks! In this FINAL Panther movie, Sellers is up to his old craziness but the film isn't quite as way out and weird as the last. Chief Inspector Dreyfus is out of the mental asylum after it is widely reported that Clouseau is dead. Kato also thinks Clouseau is dead and turns the apartment into a kinky Chinese brothel. But, Clouseau is NOT dead and Kato's scheme is quickly uncovered. However, Dreyfus is not informed of this and when he sees Clouseau again, he thinks he's once again going mad. A cute entry and well worth seeing, despite Robert Weber and Dyan Cannon not exactly being the best supporting cast the series has seen.
