That famous jewel, The Pink Panther, has once again been stolen and Inspector Clouseau is called in to catch the thief. The Inspector is convinced that 'The Phantom' has returned and utilises all of his resources - himself and his oriental manservant - to reveal the true identity of 'The Phantom'.

You could say this is the sequel to the first Pink Panther movie. Again, there is a lot of the things in it that Sellers does best. David Plummer takes on the role as Sir Charles Litton. I must agree that he isn´t as good as Niven who was more distinguished which suited the character more. So it is not as much his performance as it is his appearance. Since there also is the lovely Catherine Schell I won´t complain.
I think this is so best of the series so far.

I think it's better than the first one, at least my wish to see more of Inspector Jacques Clouseau was achieved and he provide us a lot of silly, funny and bumbling moments in the search for the Pink Panther that was stolen once again by the Phantom.
Peter Sellers delivered a great performance again!
I think David Niven was better as Phantom/Sir Charles Lytton in the first film than Christopher Plummer in this one. He was more charming, shifty and cool as a burglar should be.
