My darling, l'm so sorry.

Darling, l have a little business

with the manager.

- Yes?

- Ooh.

After which, l'll return to you

immediately... my darling.

All right.


- How did it go?

- Perfectly.

(knock at door)

Come in.

Princess Dala is concerned

about your injuries.

Please thank her and say there's

nothing to be concerned about.

lt's really not too serious.

ln that case, Her Highness

has instructed me to invite you for dinner.

- Eight o'clock at her chalet.

- Thank the princess. l'd be delighted.

- lspettore.

- Buongiorno.

You know Signor Tucker from Lloyd's.

- Hello.

- Hello, old bean.

- You insure the Pink Panther.

- For half a million.

- Pounds?

- Sterling.

The Phantom could not resist the

Pink Panther. He will make an attempt.

But when he does,

l shall be waiting for him.

Your theory is the Phantom

is one of Miss Dunning's guests?

That is the theory. l want the guests'

names, also the locations of their rooms.

Of course.

- Princess Dala has the jewel with her?

- She'd only tell me it was in a safe place.

- lf it isn't here, it's at her villa in Rome.

- My men are watching that villa.

With such planning,

how can the Phantom succeed?

With such planning,

he's succeeded for 20 years.

lt's a great mistake to underestimate him.

The shrewdest,

cleverest criminal in the world.

- And you have never seen him?

- l've seen him once.

Five years ago l got a fleeting glimpse...

Excuse me. A fleeting glimpse

as he made his getaway.

ln a strange way, one has to admire

this man, his - how would you say? -

unique flair for the dramatic.

- He actually waved goodbye to me.

- Fascinating.

But this time, gentlemen, l shall be waving

goodbye to him... on his way to prison.

Good evening.

Make yourself comfortable.
