Guy Gadbois demonstrates what a devastating impression a bold jacket can make when worn with confidence
The Return of the Pink Panther
Inspector Jacques Clouseau (an inimitable Peter Sellers) of the Sûreté (naturellement) returns to the screen after a gap of ten years in The Return of the Pink Panther (1975; Blake Edwards) and quickly demonstrates that he has lost nothing of his instinctive feel for a fiasco.
The fabled and famously weighty Pink Panther diamond disappears from the National Museum of Lugash and is replaced by a white glove monogrammed in gold with the letter 'P'. Who could it be? Naturally, the finger of suspicion is pointed at the diamond thief's diamond thief Sir Charles Lytton, aka The Phantom, who has serious form.
But Clouseau is not a man to be thrown off the scent by the obvious and so sets out to bumble his way to the bottom of things, employing a series of masterfully inept disguises along the way. Here (above) he is hard on the tail of Lady Lytton (a clearly amused Catherine Schell) in the guise of ladies' man Guy Gadbois, demonstrating just what a devastating impression a bold, stand-out jacket can make when worn with confidence.
