When a widow's husband gets murdered in cold blood, Inspector Clouseau is back on the job leaving Maria, the widow to be the suspect. However, Clouseau struggles the overwhelming evidence as the true suspect is still out there.
"Death Stone" has quite a cast: on the male front, a reunion of the two leads of the 1960's Eurospy "Kommissar X" films, Brad Harris and Tony Kendall; on the female front, a "mature" Elke Sommer and a lean, sexy Heather Thomas. But the women don't really have much to do, and for some reason Harris (a - relative - goodie) and Kendall (a baddie) share only one short scene in the entire film! It is a thoroughly routine but still watchable low-grade exotic (shot in Sri Lanka) adventure, with just a hint of the supernatural (the "death stone" of the title, which one character finds on a beach, and which apparently brings a curse on whomever possesses it). There are moments of enjoyable action, but they are few and far between. It's not really worth going out of your way to see, unless of course you have a special interest in the work of any or all of the above cast members. ** out of 4.
