Description by OLDIES.com:

Inspector Clouseau, the lovable buffoon with a knack for mispronunciation, is MIA! The Pink Panther diamond goes missing - and then, en route to the scene of the crime, Clouseau's plane goes missing! The terrifically talented Peter Sellers "induces gales of tonic laughter" (The Hollywood Reporter) in this wild adventure co-starring the full Panther ensemble cast, including David Niven, Herbert Lom, Burt Kwouk and Capucine, along with newcomers Joanna Lumley, Richard Mulligan and Harvey Korman.

Product Description:

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.

Plot Synopsis:

This sixth film of the Blake Edwards detective comedy series finds both Chief Inspector Clouseau and the famous Pink Panther diamond missing.

Production Notes:

  • TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTEHR is dedicated to actor Peter Sellers, "the one and only Inspector Clouseau," who died two years before the film was made.
  • Sellers's performance is constructed from outtakes and other previously unseen footage from the earlier movies. His comedy routines are cut with new scenes featuring the series' old stars--all glued together by a connecting plot about the "missing" Clouseau.
