To prove that he still is strong and powerful, Philippe Douvier decides to kill Clouseau. Once news of his "death" has been announced, Clouseau tries to take advantage of it and goes undercover with Cato to find out who tried to kill him.
The bumbling Inspector Clouseau travels to Rome to catch a notorious jewel thief known as "The Phantom" before he conducts his most daring heist yet: a princess' priceless diamond with one slight imperfection, known as "The Pink Panther".
Inspector Clouseau disappears, and the Surete wants the world's second best detective to look for him. However, Clouseau's enemy, Dreyfus, rigs the Surete's computer to select, instead, the world's worst detective, N.Y.P.D. Sergeant Clifton Sleigh. Sleigh obtusely bungles his way past assassins and corrupt officials as though he were Clouseau's American cousin.Written by

Prof. Auguste Balls:
[In reference to Cunny]
He can whip you up a very nice suit with two pairs of pants while you wait; what do you say?
Sergeant Clifton Sleigh:
Uh... no, you see I'm investigating...
Prof. Auguste Balls:
Of course you're investigating! You're a policeman. I knew that the moment you walked into my emporium: Your courage, your alertness, the way your eyes take in everything. I immediately said to myself "Balls, this is a policeman's policeman."

Roger Moore is credited as Turk Thrust II. See more »
This is definitely the worst Pink Panther film of all, but it's worth seeing (read-wait until the end of the film) because of a fantastic cameo of (great in this role) Roger Moore who shows that he fits very well in the part of Clouseau. I think Peter Sellers would be satisfied with Moore's outing. P.S. Note that it's the last David Niven film.
