A Shot in The Dark - 1964

Directed by Blake Edwards

A funny movie where a foolish clumsy officer ( Peter Sellers as Jacques Clouseau) gets on to a murder case which leads on to several murders and the obvious suspect in all cases appear to be Elke Sommer as Maria Gambrelli . However it seems like Officer Clouseau has an attraction to Miss Gambrelli and also refuses to believe that she is the  culprit. How much Officer Gambrelli gets onto his superior's (Herbert Lom as Charles Dreyfus ) nerves and how pathetically clumsy he can be takes the story ahead. There were several scenes which brought about a smile or a giggle or an amusement. Was a fine watch, but nothing I would treasure in my collection.

A one time watch.
