During the closing credits, the straightjacket-bound Dreyfus is shown watching and commenting on the words, particularly when Peter Sellers' credit comes up as "Clouseau." Dreyfus also writes "The End" on the wall of his padded cell with his feet. See more »
The original UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC for a 'U' certificate to remove Sir Charles's audible use of the word 'shit' (though he can still be seen to mouth the word). Despite later releases being upgraded to a PG they all feature the original edited print. See more »
This is one of my all time favorite peter sellers movies, It has been on AMC any number of times and each time I catch it on, i stop what i'm doing and watch it again.....it just never seems to grow old. Some of my fav. scenes are any one of the ones with CATO in them, when he and Insp. C. go around and around tearing up the kitchen,and making a terrible mess of everything. Also when he and the vacuum cleaner and the bird, oh my what a riot. And the lamp, and on and on. Especially when the Chief INspector keeps getting hurt, sorry, but its still funny.........as he goes on getting more mad by the moment.... Of course, there's Christopher Plummer in this movie too, I always was fond of him,esp. after seeing him in Sound Of Music some years before this movie. Thanks to AMC we are able to keep viewing some of these comedic classics for years to come.
