The Pink Panther

Synopsis: When the coach of the France soccer team is killed by a poisoned dart in the stadium in the end of a game, and his expensive and huge ring with the diamond Pink Panther disappears, the ambitious Chief Insp. Dreyfus assigns the worst police inspector Jacques Clouseau to the case. His intention is to give a diversion to the press, while he uses his best men to chase the killer and thief. He assigns Gendarme Gilbert Ponton to work with Clouseau and inform each step of the investigation. When Clouseau is nominated with honor to the highest prize in France, Dreyfus decides to humiliate Clouseau and take him out of the case. However Clouseau has already solved the mystery.

- I can't see anything.

- Maybe over here?

- Yes, okay.

- Okay.

Over here.

The inspector will see you now.

He'll be right with you.


- Clouseau.

- He's coming in.


Officer Jacques Clouseau,

gendarme, third class.

- That had to hurt.

- No. No, not at all. No.

Clouseau, the reason

we called you here...

It is lovely weather we are having.

I hope the weather continues.

The area is secure.

Oh, thank you.

Clouseau, I have reviewed

your records, and it is clear to me...

...that a man of your talent

merits greater responsibility...

...than you have had

up to this point.

I have decided to promote you

to inspector...

...the highest rank of any officer

in the republic.

- Inspector?

- Exactly.

And your first case

is the Gluant murder...

...and theft of

the Pink Panther diamond.

- I am honored.

- Good.

Jacques Clouseau,

by the power vested in me...

...I hereby appoint you

full inspector...

...with all of the...

Here, if you would be so kind,


Oh, here, take my pen.

Thank you.

One does not often see

the traditional French fountain pen.

I will cherish this forever.

No. It is not a gift.

That was given to me

by the mayor of Paris.

Well, then...

...I cannot accept this.

The press conference.

Yes. Clouseau, there is

a press conference... just a few minutes

down the hall... introduce you to the media.

We'll meet you there.

And, Clouseau?


Good luck.

Good luck to you.

And where is the press conference?

Go under the arch...

...through the door on the right

and down the hall.


The area is still secure.

Thank you.

He's perfect.

Yes, we have definitely

found our man.

Why do I feel wet?

Because of the unique nature

of the crime...

...we have brought in a man

specially suited to the case:
