A Shot in the Dark
DIRECTOR: BLAKE EDWARDS
CAST: PETER SELLERS, ELKE SOMMER, GEORGE SANDERS
The second outing for Inspector Jacques Clouseau, here haplessly and hopelessly in love with Elke Sommer, the prime suspect in a multiple murder spree. Offers perhaps Sellers most nuanced performance as Clouseau, both pathetically lovelorn and hysterically blundering, as well as the maiden voyage for many members of the Pink Panther supporting cast, including André Maranne as the bemused François; Herbert Lom as his apoplectic boss, Commissioner Dreyfus and Burt Kwouk as Clouseau’s sneak-attacking sidekick Cato.
