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:

Beretta M1934

Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) keeps what appears to be a Beretta M1934 in his desk drawer which he confuses with a cigarette lighter that is also shaped like the handgun. Hilarity ensues!

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.
