- One trailer for this film consisted entirely of bloopers.
- During the opening credits, one of the movies parodied is The Sound of Music, which starred Blake Edwards' wife, 'Andrews, Julie' .
- 'Leslie-Anne Down' was cast as Olga by mistake. Blake Edwards meant to audition Nicola Pagett, who played Elizabeth Bellamy on "Upstairs, Downstairs" (1971), but instead auditioned Ms. Down, who played Georgia Worsley on later episodes of that same series. 'Julie Andrews' commented that she didn't look like the actress in the series, but Blake Edwards wrote it off to lighting and make-up.
- The title of this film is misleading, as the "Pink Panther" - the large diamond featured in the first _Pink Panther, The (1964)_ and _Return of the Pink Panther, The (1974)_ - is not featured or even mentioned in this film. But by the 1970s the name Pink Panther had become so synonymous with Inspector Clouseau - and the animated panther featured in the opening credits - that all future Clouseau films would include Pink Panther in the title.
