Inspector Jacques Clouseau investigates the murder of Mr. Benjamin Ballon's driver at a country estate.
According to the liner notes of the film's first DVD release (before The Pink Panther (1963) box set), the audience at the preview enjoyed the Inspector Closeau cartoon title sequence so much that the entire audience gave the cartoon a standing ovation and the theater had to stop the movie until everyone settled again.
Commissioner Dreyfus... Ah, yes, my darling... I was just about to call you. I'm on my way. I've got the cheese and the beaujolais... What?
Dreyfus: ... My love. Kiss the children for me, hmm?
Dreyfus: Hold on.
intercom: Your wife is on the other line.
Dreyfus: Tell her I'm out of town.
Clouseau puts his still-lit cigarette lighter into the front of his trench-coat, but the smoke starts coming from the back. There are also no burn holes or anything when he frantically removes it.
The title sequence is of an animated Inspector Clouseau bumbling around, getting into scrapes.
