Interpol's Inspector Jacques Clouseau has been so obsessed with catching a notorious jewel thief nicknamed ”The Phantom" for the past 15 years that he is not even aware that the thief's lover is Mme. Clouseau! After meeting a princess in possession of the famous “Pink Panther” gem whilst vacationing at an Alpine ski resort, The Phantom sets his sights on acquiring the priceless bauble. But in order to get it, he will have to fend off competition from his own ambitious son and the bungling Clouseau. "The Pink Panther Theme" was composed by Henry Mancini, and subsequently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score.
