  • Inspector Clouseau meets Que Pasa USA?

    7.5
    That's right. Though this episode isn't one for the awards (but it is nevertheless a decent outing), Arnold Diamond and Nancy Nevinson (as Colonel Latignant and Dona Luisa Arroyo, respectively) have a scene of heated argument that unintentionally rivals The Man Who Liked Lions for sheer belly laughs.



    There's something about the exaggerated French accent, national pride, and overconfident attitude of the Latignant character that screams "Inspector Clouseau" every time he shows up - and this is arguably one of the best episodes to see Arnold Diamond pull out all the stops and literally play a French policeman that could rival Peter Sellers himself.



    I dare say the entire world missed out on having Peter Sellers, Arnold Diamond, and Herbert Lom each playing their respective roles from each series on one screen.



    But back to the episode: Between Latignant's exaggerated French and Nevinson's machine-gun Spanglesh, I cracked up - and if you've ever seen Que Pasa USA, you'll undoubtedly understand where I'm coming from.



    The rest of the episode is ho-hum - and the "acting" done to give Templar the location of the safe is cringe-worthy (not to mention that Nevinson can be a bit irritating).



    Nevertheless, the entire package is tolerable and enjoyable. Good to watch if you seek a light episode of The Saint.
