Regarding my Taki column on the UN’s magical ability to avoid CGI destruction, alone amongst recognizable man-made landmarks of the world, a kind 5FF reader set me straight. Many thanks…
Anyhow, the UN building did get destroyed in a big movie, by Chief Inspector Dreyfus, no less. That loony nemesis of Clouseau vaporized the building by means of a laser doomsday weapon located in his French chateau of all places.
I think this movie, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, should be nominated for some sort of award for eliminating the hated UN in the most diabolical way by boobs only slightly more demented than its inhabitants.
I haven’t watched clips from these films in years.
Dare I ask:
Was Herbert Lom actually funnier in these than Sellers himself?
