IMDb profile

Trail of the Pink Panther was a 1982 movie starring Peter Sellers. It was the seventh film in the Pink Panther series. Sellers' involvement was via flashbacks and unused footage from previous Pink Panther films, since he died before production of this film began. Although marketed as a tribute to Sellers, the movie was widely panned, although a follow-up, Curse of the Pink Panther soon followed since part of that film was shot concurrently with this one. David Niven makes a cameo appearance in this film, but due to ill health his voice was considered too weak and so he was overdubbed by impressionist Rich Little. Other returning actors include Herbert Lom as Dreyfus, Graham Stark as Hercule (from A Shot in the Dark), and Burt Kwouk as Cato. Image File history File links Trail_of_the_Pink_Panther. ...

Plot


The story involves Clouseau being called in to investigate the latest theft of the Pink Panther diamond. Sellers' appearances in the first half of the film seem mostly to be taken from deleted scenes shot for The Pink Panther Strikes Again. In one scene Clouseau is heavily bandaged, making it impossible to tell if he is actually played by Sellers, while some other scenes include dialogue that is clearly dubbed (badly) by another actor. The Pink Panther Strikes Again is the fifth film in the Pink Panther series (although only the third to include the words Pink Panther in its title, despite the fact that the story does not involve the Pink Panther diamond of the previous films) and continues the story after the...


En route Clouseau disappears, and Marie Jouvet (Joanna Lumley), a journalist investigating his disappearance, sets out to discover his background by interviewing people with whom he was involved over the years. This provides ample opportunities for flashbacks to favourite scenes from the earlier films. Jouvet also interviews Clouseau's father (a heavily disguised Richard Mulligan), which provides glimpses of Clouseau's childhood, where he is played by Lucca Mezzofanti, and his early career in the French Resistance in which he is played by Daniel Peacock. Joanna Lumley and David McCallum as Sapphire & Steel. ... Richard Mulligan (November 13, 1932 - September 26, 2000) was an American television and film actor whose career spanned 34 years. ...

The film ends with Jouvet concluding that Clouseau must be alive. Clouseau (played by Joe Dunne, only seen from behind) is glimpsed standing on a seaside cliff being pooped upon by a seagull, and a montage of Sellers' performances plays alongside the closing credits.
