Return of the Pink Panther, The
The Return of the Pink Panther is the third film in the Pink Panther movie series to be directed by Blake Edwards and marked the return of Peter Sellers to the role of Inspector Clouseau (Alan Arkin appeared as the character in 1968's Inspector Clouseau). The 1975 sequel follows Clouseau as he investigates a second theft of the Pink Panther diamond. While officially part of the movie series, rights issues have kept this film from being included in certain Pink Panther video collection releases.
The following weapons were used in the film The Return of the Pink Panther:
Smith & Wesson Model 10
A Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver is seen held by a bank robber at the film's beginning.
A bank security officer is seen pulling what appears to be an M1911A1 on the escaping thieves, but is soon knocked unconscious by Clouseau.
The men who find Pepi in the auxiliary gas tank pull Browning Hi-Power handguns on him.
FN Model 22
An FN Model 22 appears to be the pistol pulled by Col. Sharky (Peter Arne). The movie version does not have the external extractor of the Model 22, but since the gun is never fired it's possible it's a rubber prop.
A breakdown model of the M1 Carbine is used (sometimes with a suppressor) by Chief Inspector Dreyfus.
The thief uses a scoped crossbow of uknown model during the Pink Panther heist.
