Facts about

Between 1964 and 1993, nine Inspector Clouseau (or related) films would be released, although Inspector Clouseau and the movies made after Peter Sellers's death are mostly not considered canon. All but two would carry the "Pink Panther" title, but only four of the films actually deal with the Pink Panther diamond itself: this one, The Return of the Pink Panther, Trail of the Pink Panther and Curse of the Pink Panther. The reason they still kept The Pink Panther in the title was because it had become synonymous with inspector Clouseau.
In one scene, there's a night club called "Les Nus les plus osées du monde": The most daring nudes in the world.
The second Clouseau film, A Shot in the Dark, was released only three months after this film.
