One would have thought that the death of Peter Sellers in 1980 would spell the end of the Pink Panther series but Blake Edwards was able to utilize leftover footage from previous Panther efforts to create TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER. Sellers once again stars as the ineptly heroic Inspector Clouseau who is assigned to investigate when the fabulous Pink Panther diamond is again stolen from the country of Lugash. While flying to England for an important meeting with Scotland Yard Clouseau's plane mysteriously disappears over the Atlantic arousing speculation about the detective. Clouseau's past is dug up by French television reporter Marie Jouvet (Joanna Lumley) who interviews many of the people whose lives the bungling detective has touched--in more ways than one--over the years including Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) Sir Charles Lytton (David Niven) Clouseau's former wife now Lady Lytton (Capucine) and of course the incomparable Kato (Burt Kwouk). In the course of her research Jouvet manages to unearth Clouseau's father who not surprisingly shares many of his son's most familiar characteristics.System Requirements:Running Time: 97 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY Rating: PG UPC: 027616905970 Manufacturer No: 1006396

The first part of the film is a rehash of some scenes from earlier "Panther" movies and outtakes cleverly edited to try to resemble a story. The truth be told, there are some individually hilarious clips in the first half, which is why I gave the film two stars.
Hands down the best scene in the movie involves a nightmare that Herbert Lom has regarding a birthday present from Clouseau, and his attempts to swim in it. In fact, the only truly great moments in the film all star Lom, the most gifted of any of the "Panther" co-stars. I was also amused that the name of Hercule's (Seller's friend and regular of the series, Graham Stark) boat was "The Moth", of course pronounced "Muuuth" as homage to Sellers.
The second half (after Clouseau's plane disappears...) is devoted to annoyingly self-important reporter Marie Jouvet, played by the pretty but untalented Joanna Lumley, looking for clues about Clouseau's disappearance. She takes the opportunity to interview Dreyfus and Cato, and as well as Sir Charles and Lady Litton (David Niven and the late Capucine, who, the back story reveals are now married), and most embarrassingly of all Clouseau's "father" and nanny. The scene with Clouseau, Senior and "Nanna" is utterly painful to watch and is nothing but a bad caricature of Sellers. The childhood flashbacks which follow are even more wretched, particularly the dismal "Good, Bad, and the Ugly" parody of Clint Eastwood with a cap gun.Read more ›
Dreyfus dreams that Cleuseau put 3,000 pounds of Jello in his swimming pool, then wakes up and dives into the pool cover!
this is not a bad film. It is just not for people who expect it to be the same as the other Panther movies.
P.S. The scene where the Pink Panther diamond is stolen, is the CHEAPEST robbery scene I have ever seen, and it is used AGAIN in "Curse of the Pink Panther"!
