This time Peter Sellers was set as star, but Blake Edwards was a late-inning replacement as writer/director—brainstorming the stage adaptation into a Clouseau tale. Bolstered by co-stars who became Panther movie staples, Sellers gives his best performance in the role as the Inspector gets hysterically lovestruck by swoon-worthy prime suspect Maria Gambrelli (Elke Sommer) amidst a baffling multiple murder investigation that occasions an unforgettable visit to a nudist colony.
