A journalist attempts to uncover the mysterious disappearance of Inspector Clouseau.
The actor who plays Chief Inspector Clouseau in scenes shot after Sellers' death was John Taylor, who doubled Sellers in The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu (1980).
Sergeant Francois Duval:
Clouseau was trying to fix the lighter. He is sure that someone planted a bomb in the car.
Chief Insp. Charles Dreyfus: Yes. Someone should have... I mean, could have done that.
The thief at the beginning manages to steal the Pink Panther diamond without any sort of alarms or security going off.
All UK cinema and video versions were cut by 21 secs by the BBFC to remove the nunchaku footage previously edited from The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976). The cuts were fully restored in 2003.
