6/23/1964 A Shot in the Dark is fired
June 23, 1964. This date saw the release of A Shot in the Dark. It is the second Inspector Clouseau movie, and the only one without Pink Panther in the title. It was based on a French play which is why it involves murder instead of theft and has an actual mystery in it. But most important it has Peter Sellers.
