THE RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER
Directed by BLAKE EDWARDS
Screenplay by FRANK WALDMAN and BLAKE EDWARDS
At the time of the robbery, Inspector Jacques Clouseau was standing outside the bank, arguing with a beggar. The poor fellow was trying to earn a few centimes playing the accordion, while his pet monkey collected coins in a tin cup. Now you will recall from The Pink Panther and A Shot in the Dark that Clouseau has an immaculate and quite literal respect for the law. This is, in fact, why he is in uniform, on foot patrol, instead of dashing about in plain clothes...
