Peter Sellers' last Panther, 26 January 2008
Author: blanche-2 from United States

Peter Sellers is once again Inspector Clouseau in "Revenge of the Pink Panther," a 1978 film also starring Herbert Lom, Dyan Cannon, Robert Webber and Robert Loggia. A mobster decides to get Clouseau out of the way with disastrous results for everyone around the clumsy detective. In one of the best scenes, Clouseau picks up a good-looking woman, ladies man that he is, but she turns out to be a transvestite. Clouseau is forced to change clothes with her and is left on the highway. When the car crashes, the dead body is identified as Clouseau's, and the world mourns, with one exception - Clouseau's superior, Dreyfus (Lom) who feels that now, he can start living again. Forced to give the eulogy and on the verge of a psychotic break, Dreyfus keeps laughing as he speaks. A great scene. When Clouseau returns to his house, he finds that Cato, believing him dead, has turned it into an Asian brothel, making for more hilarity This isn't the best Blake Edwards-Peter Sellers collaboration, but it has some great moments. There is a tremendous amount slapstick; some of it is funny, and some goes a long way. Seeing Sellers as Clouseau, however, is always worth it.
