Continuity mistake: Closeau is at his desk preparing to light his pipe. The Pipe is in his mouth as he lights the match, the camera angle changes and now it is out of his mouth in his left hand as the camera zooms in, he puts it back in his mouth to light.

Factual error: The Pink Panther has been stolen again. Closeau is looking at the French newspaper "Le Figaro" where everything is written in French, everything except the article titled, "Pink Panther Snatched Again".

Continuity mistake: Closeau gets tripped by a man walking his dog while on the way home from the market. He starts spilling either salt or sugar all the way home. As he gets of the elevator at his home he leaves a trail out of the elevator and to his door. His neighbor lady comes into the hallway and he performs a little softshoe. Now the problem is, when he left the elevator he hadn't spilled much if any in there. When his neighbor makes her way towards the elevator, there is a big pile of the sugar/ or salt in the elevator that wasn't there just before the camera angle change.

Continuity mistake: An old man walks out from the Trattoria as the four cars go zipping back and forth by him. He walks out into the street then walks back to the front of the Trattoria and grabs a chair to sit and watch. The nitpick is the chair wasn't there when he came out of the Trattoria the first time, but it is when he goes back and sits down.

Continuity mistake: When the Godfather tells the girl at the side of the pool to take a swim, she jumps in with sunglasses on and comes back up without them. Later in the scene she asks the Godfather if she can get out and she has the sunglasses on again.

Deputy Comissioner Lasorde: Read this most carefully and give me your opinion.
Insp. Jacques Clouseau: I will read my opinion and give you yours most carefully.

Trivia: Actor David Niven was, in fact, terminally ill with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) when he appeared in both "Trail of the Pink Panther" and "Curse of the Pink Panther" before his death in 1983. Niven's illness was so debilitating that his voice often completely failed him while filming, such that it was necessary to hire celebrity impressionist Rich Little to overdub Niven's voice in both films.
