This one had the inimitable Peter Sellers (the Magic Christian) playing Clouseau – as is right and proper – and the plot sees his long suffering ex-Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom, Count Dracula) entirely losing the plot, escaping from the hospital for the Criminally Insane and becoming a megalomaniac super villain, ala James Bond movies, whose doomsday device is put to one use – deliverance of the death of Clouseau.
It isn’t my favourite Pink Panther movie but it is a great piece of classic comedy. However, you might be wondering why it is getting an honourable mention?
