A string of robberies has occurred in Britain and it's up to Inspector Clouseau to catch the criminal.
Alan Arkin got the role of Clouseau because Peter Sellers was busy doing The Party (1968), directed by Blake Edwards, who was also the director of the previous Clouseau films. He was replaced by Bud Yorkin. Later, Sellers and Edwards would return to the series. With them, the original composer (Henry Mancini) also returned.
Inspector Jacques Clouseau:
Yes, well, life is not all shoot-shoot, bang-bang, you know.
Having a group of people wearing the same masks robbing different banks at the same time would not help the criminals. Their finger prints would still be left behind . As well as the fact that our current laws if physics prevent being in two different places at the same time . It would have been discovered that one man can't be in multiple banks around Switzerland at the same time.
The opening credits are of an animated Inspector Clouseau pursuing a bank robber.
