Blake Edwards United Kingdom, 1964

SpacePirate's rating of the film A Shot in the Dark

As good as the original, this one perhaps succeeds a bit more than others in the series, with a good supporting cast including Sanders, and Sommer playing a good damsel in distress. This one has a darker tone, and Sellers tones down the slapstick a bit as a result to better serve the mood. There are def moments for him to shine here, but he did his best work elsewhere, namely in The Party and Being There. 3 stars
