Curse Of The Pink Panther (1983)

When Inspector Clouseau goes missing, Interpol’s computer is secretly programmed by Clouseau’s boss (Herbert Lom) to select the world’s worst detective to search for his unwanted employee.

Bumbling New York cop Clifton Sleigh (Ted Wass) is chosen and sets about interviewing characters from previous movies, among them David Niven, Capucine and Robert Wagner, and their reveries provide the excuse for out-takes from the previous Pink Panther films.

Without any original input from Peter Sellers, this seventh instalment in Blake Edwards’s comedy series produces negligible humour.

This was David Niven’s last film. What a pity he had to go like this.
