|"He has been tagged as an 'enfant terrible' or a 'Wunderkind', a 'genius' (as a $136,000 1983 MacArthur Foundation Fellow), or a 'Cuisinart of contemporary theater' (an American critic), 'brilliant' or merely the 'latest flavor of the month' (according to a London critic). He has also been likened to another 'Amadeus', possessed of child-like exuberances, an almost-manic energy and an artistic vision that may herald the future." --Judith Michaelson (LOS ANGELES TIMES CALENDAR, December 13, 1987)|

Assigned to a high-profile case involving a millionaire's murdered chauffeur, our favorite bumbling Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellars) finds himself (literally!) falling for a beautiful parlormaid played by Elke Sommer, whose talent for being in the wrong place at the wrong time rivals his.
Clouseau (Peter Sellars) goes missing, a a reporter (Joanna Lumley) attempts to memorialize the clumsy crime fighter, and his nemesis Dreyfus (Herbert Lon) can't stop laughing! In this clip, the Inspector arrives home to encounter a most disapproving neighbor.
Created by Fritz Freleng and David DePatie, the slick and sly Pink Panther character made his debut in April of 1964 in the opening credits of the big-screen comedy The Pink Panther, starring Peter Sellars. The animated short you can watch here won an Oscar.
Driven mad by Inspector Clouseau's (Peter Sellars) idiocy, Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) vows to destroy the world with his doomsday device, unless Clouseau is taken out first by any of the 26 assassins for hire. In this clip, Clouseau "drops in" unexpectedly on his neighbors.
