When the hitchhiker pulls off her wig and pretends to be a man, her voice changes to that of a man's voice and is clearly a totally different voice, not just a disguised voice, and the lip movements do not match the words further proving that the man's voice is being dubbed. See more »

When I saw this film in 1978, I was delighted it ended with a chase. So many American comedies have failed to do so, and when Woody Allen had that wonderful, brief car collision scene at the end of ANNIE HALL, I heard Mack Sennett cheering.
The Return of the Pink Panther, 1974, shows some budget limitations - it was originally a TV series but Edwards and Sellers could not manage that with Clouseau. Strikes Again, 1976, was - to me - a bit forced with some wonderful sequences, and some that did not work at all. Revenge - 1978 - is just a warm fun film to enjoy.
Of the first two, The Pink Panther is boring in moments but has a very good chase. Clouseau came into his being with Shot in the Dark, probably the BEST of the series.
Do not disown this film - it is a warm bottle of French Wine indeed, one to share and savor. And a tribute to what a talent Sellers and Edwards were together.
