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 »
When the two killers shoot their way into Dyan Cannon's apartment, both of their guns have silencers yet the sounds we hear are of guns without silencers. See more »

I bought this one on DVD, and I read through the booklet that went behind the scenes for production. With only so much time given to write a script, get everyone signed, and make the movie plus the downtime suffered by a health problems (Peter Sellers and Blake Edwards) maybe the causes for a shorter possibly less that usual panther...NOT SO in my opinion...hilarity reigns in this one. I love seeing Clouseau in so many disguises, Dreyfus fainting every 3 seconds (though more interaction with him would have been nice), and CATO HAS A BIGGER ROLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally we get to see HOW inept he really was as Clouseau's assistant/manservant. Honeslty though, the funeral scene, the "Remodeled" Clouseau Apartment, and Hong Kong are the best parts of the movie...THis one is worth it
