Inspector Clouseau

Of the various lacklustre Pink Panther sequels – save for the good one, A Shot in the Dark – this is undoubtedly the one to watch if you’re going to bother with them at all, being the curious Edwards-less, Sellers-less third instalment with Alan ’22’ Arkin bravely stepping into the hat and coat, and not doing all that bad a job of it, really. The supporting cast’s probably better than any of the ‘proper’ Panthers, too, at least for our purposes – Anthony ‘Master’ Ainley, Geoffrey ‘Catweazle’ Bayldon, Patrick ‘Wives’ Cargill, Barry ‘Valk’ Foster, Beryl ‘Mr Milford-Haven’ Reid, Frank Finlay and Michael Ripper.
