Chief Inspector Clouseau Interrogates the Staff

Subtitle: Great moments in comedy.
We all need a little levity and for me Peter Sellers almost never fails to deliver, especially in his signature role as Chief Inspector Clouseau. In this scene, Professor Fassbinder and his daughter have been kidnapped by former chief inspector Dreyfus to help Dreyfus build a doomsday machine. Dreyfus, who has gone mad because of Clouseau, wants to blackmail the world with the machine for the life of Clouseau. Clouseau is inspecting the crime scene and conducts an interrogation.
From the film The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976)

Saturday at the movies: Pink Panther Strikes Again

Probably the funniest comedic sequence I have ever seen in a film, this interrogation of suspects from Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976) is my all time favorite scene from the entire Pink Panther franchise.

Clouseau is interrogating the staff of a Professor Fassbinder who has been kidnapped by Clouseau’s nemesis, the former Chief Inspector Dreyfus. He begins in the gymnasium and makes a rapid and dramatic entrance to the parlor where the staff is gathered. After the “interrogation,” he manages to shoot his British inspector counterpart with buckshot, requiring immediate “surgery.” It is well worth the 5+ minutes.
