Movie Summary

Director:
Blake Edwards
Released:
1976
Rating:
PG
The Pink Panther Strikes Again brings back the beloved Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) in one of the better films from the long-running "Pink Panther" comedy series. In this 1976 comedy, the clumsy and inept detective has driven his former boss, Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) mad, literally. Dreyfus uses his time in the mental institution to plot the fumbling Frenchman's murder. He uses a Doomsday machine to destroy the U.N. and demands that nations around the world send assassins to annihilate him Clouseau. Of course, the extraordinarily lucky and consistently oblivious Inspectors dodges their attempts, and manages to bumble his way to victory. Director Blake Edwards ("Victor, Victoria") maintains a frantic pace with broad physical gags, providing the perfect contrast to the deadpan performance of Sellers. Even after all this years, this comedy gem remains fresh and delightful, with a sparkling supporting cast including Leslie Anne Downs as a sexy Russian spy and Bert Kwouk as Cato, the loyal manservant.
