Each interviewee Dreyfus, Sir Charles & Lady Lytton (an ex-wife of Clouseau), George Lytton, Hercule Lajoy (assistant in "A Shot In The Dark"), and Cato tell of their run-ins with Clouseau. She is also kidnapped by mobster Bruno Langlois who doesn't want Clouseau found but she continues and finds Clouseau Sr., Clouseau's father. Is Clouseau alive or is he dead?

He's going in.


Chief Inspector.

Hail to the chief.

Come right in.

Good to see you.

Your disguise

is ready for final fitting.

I'm sure you will be pleased.

Inspector Clouseau is here!

- Chief Inspector.

- Chief!

I saw some

very interesting noses.

Those noses over there

are for the amateurs.

I have some

in my private stock.

You always did

have a nose for noses.

How are you?

I'm sorry. Our Valentine Day

stock isn't ready yet,

but we have

some beauties here for you.

Let's try this one first.

Here's a marvelous one.

All right.

Can we get that on there?

- What do you think of that?

- Wait. Yes.

I call this one

"The Way We Were."

Do you like it with the profile?

It's from our Streisand line.

You like it?

I don't like it, either.

Sorry, I almost

took your nose with that.

Let's try...

what are you doing?

Come over here.

Let's try this one now.

I think you will like this one.

It's very suitable for your face.

It fits in with your lines.

What do you think of that?

I call this one

"Wino and Roses."

Did you notice that...

The veins are quite lifelike,

don't you agree?

I'm particularly proud

of the enlarged pores.

Look at this one right here.

I wasn't crazy about it, either.

We will try something else.

- Something...

- Something's missing.

- Something missing there.

- How about that?

Does that supply it for you?

That's very nice.

There is a nose, Auguste.

That is a nose.

You have a nose for noses.

Get the wigs.

I always can tell immediately

I see the nose.

We call this one

our "Inky-dinky-doo."

That's from

our Inky-dinky-doo line.

What do you have

to go with this?

We will find something.

This will keep you very warm.

This has

a nice effect with that.

- That is too legal.

- Too legal.

- I want something sort of...

- Here's something illegal here.

Leave it to Dr. Balls!


Look at what you've done.

- You like it?

- You're a genius!

- We need...

- Something.

Something is missing.

I know what's missing.

Here are some teeth

on the house.

Let me see how they look.


- Look at this!

- You are a genius at your art!

My dear boy!

He's still inside.

What do you want us to do

when he comes out?

Follow him.


Come down and wrap

the Chief Inspector's purchase, please.

I've recently been doing

something very daring in a stump.

Arm and leg. Only 900 francs

for the complete kit.

It has been my experience that,

in an emergency,

a stump can get in the way.

Martha, you remember

Chief Inspector Clouseau?

I never set eyes

on this gentleman before.

Good evening, Martha.

I cannot believe my eyes!

That is because your husband

is a genius, madame.

Wrap these up, please.

I want that nose to go with it.

- Impossible.

- Money is no object.

That is absolutely the ugliest nose

I have ever seen in my life.

It is so revolting,

it is a masterpiece.

It is also Martha's own nose.

My compliments, madame.

It suits you.

Thank you, Chief Inspector.

Thank you.

I will get your bill.

My God, Auguste,

what have you done?

The left heel

is cleverly built up,

which gives

added height and authority.

But the real secret

is in the right heel.

The lifelike clubfoot look

is caused by a built-in spring

which digs into the ankle,

causing excruciating pain.

Very realistic, don't you think?


How soon can I have a pair?

I can have them ready

for you by Wednesday.

Thank you very much, madame.

Auguste, my sincere thanks,

and to you, madame.

You like the hand?

I'll pack them up with the shoes.

We're having a hand sale.
