Many scenes were filmed in Morocco. French is a second language there and would explain why many of the people of "Lugash" speak as they do. See more »

During the animated opening credits, the credit for the Hal David song "The Greatest Gift" is the first credit seen after the title, occurring between the star and supporting cast credits. In the 1970s, songwriting credits usually appeared about midway though the opening credits and usually were paired with the film's composer credit; it was unusual for a song credit to be singled out in such a way.

The first DVD release, put out by Artisan Entertainment, did not feature the original 2.35:1 aspect ratio version of the film. Instead, the pan-and-scan version of the film was cropped, and the DVD was presented in a matted aspect ratio of 1.85:1--approximately 25% of the screen was lost in this process. See more »
This is probably the fourth best film in the series, rating only ahead of 'Revenge' in terms of the original Sellers' films. There is some very funny stuff, but not quite up to the standards set in some of the other films.
For me, the sequence starting with Clouseau vacuuming Lady Linton's apartment is the best in the movie. Our first meeting with Guy Gadua (sp?) is hysterical as well.
Christopher Plummer is good, but Niven would have been better. Too bad he was unavailable.
