The Pink Panther Strikes Again is a hilarious film about the further misadventures of Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau. Herbert Lom, Clouseau’s nemesis in the police bureau, has had his character expanded into a Professor Moriarty-type fiend, which works just fine.

This time around, Lom is introduced nearly cured of his nervous collapse. But Sellers has assumed Lom’s old chief inspector job, and when Lom escapes, Sellers is assigned to the case. Lom kidnaps scientist Richard Vernon who has a disappearing ray device; pitch is that Lom threatens world destruction unless Sellers is handed over to him for extermination.

Action proceeds smartly through plot-advancing action scenes, interleaved with excellent non-dialog sequences featuring Sellers and underscored superbly by Henry Mancini.

1976: Nomination: Best Song (‘Come to Me’)
