A Shot in the Dark

1964

Blake Edwards
Director
The Mirisch Company
Distributor
United Artists
Production Company

Easily the best of the Clouseau films, mainly because it's based on an existing play and not one of Edwards' ideas. One's enjoyment of the film really depends on one's enjoyment of Clouseau himself - personally I find him infantile and about as amusing as a root canal. The supporting cast is very good, though, and puts an ornate frame around Sellers' silly little daub of a character.
