Charles Dreyfus (Herbert Lom), who has finally cracked over Inspector Jacques Clouseau's (Peter Sellers') antics, escapes from a mental institution and launches an elaborate plan to get rid of Clouseau once and for all.
Charles Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) escapes from the mental asylum and tries to kill Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Peter Sellers). He doesn't succeed at first, so he takes on another strategy, namely to build a Doomsday machine and demand that someone else kills Jacques Clouseau, or Dreyfus will use the machine to wipe out whole cities and even whole countries. With about twenty-two assassins from all over the globe on his tail, Clouseau decides to find Dreyfus alone and put him back in the mental asylum.Written by

The opening credits begin with an animated Inspector Clouseau entering a cinema hall to watch a film. He is constantly beleaguered by the Pink Panther, however, and when the Panther appears on the screen impersonating various features (Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Batman, King Kong, The Sound of Music, Dracula, Singin' in the Rain, and a silent film), the Inspector finally loses his temper and climbs into the screen to get him... ending up trapped inside.

Earlier versions of this film had all sight of Peter Sellers' nunchaku removed from UK video releases until the censors' weapons reform in 1999. All versions of this film released after that time have the nunchaku reinstated. See more »

Kato! I'm on the Phone!!!
Oh my lord...I never laughed as hard as I did when I first saw this one....What a scream. A terrifically funny flick indeed. Where do you begin? The plunger arrow on Lom's forehead-'Kill! Kill! Kill!', the fast and furious fight with Kato, complete with floating Hunchback of Notre Dame sequence and air-hose escape scene...oh my God....Love the laughing gas scene with Clouseau and Lom...oh that one is priceless.
Lesley Anne Down as a fur coat and little else garbed Russian Spy is worth a watch too. I liked her then, I do now.
Essentially you can't go wrong with this one; it's the best in the series and makes me laugh very, very hard.
And yeah, 'Ford and Kissinger' are great too..
***1/2 outta **** oh this one is a scream
