Blake Edwards directs to a Henry Mancini score, and a British actor makes fun of the French – but it’s hardly Breakfast at Tiffany’s meets Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Still, it stands on its own as perhaps the original “reboot” – Peter Sellers has abandoned the role of Inspector Clouseau for 11 years (can you guess who played him in between?) before bringing the franchise back to life.
