A Shot in the Dark

First of the Pink Panther sequels, establishing Sellers' incompetent Inspector Clouseau as a viable series character, and prompting Blake Edwards into an unchallenging downhill coast for far too long. Sellers, smitten by Elke Sommer's pretty parlourmaid and determined to prove her innocent of the charge of shooting her lover, is given plenty of opportunity for knockabout.
