In a small village in Emilia Romagna, the parish priest Don Camillo repeatedly collides with the communist mayor Peppone. The two do not share anything in common and the slights are continuous, up to even in some cases to beat. Don Camillo coaches the football team of young boys of the village, and the day of the final match is near. Peppone however, to make a joke in bad taste to the enemy, corrupts the referee. Don Camillo realizes it and fights again with him; so Don Camillo is exiled. But the citizens of the village do not agree, and so Peppone is forced to make up for not winning the confidence in the government.

After a series of misunderstandings with Diaghilev, who is both his domineering mentor and possessive lover, Nijinsky succumbs to Romola's charms and marries her.

At a psychiatric hospital, former Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) is largely recovered from his obsession to kill the new Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Peter Sellers) and is about to be released when Clouseau, arriving to speak on Dreyfus' behalf, drives Dreyfus insane again. Dreyfus promptly escapes from the asylum and once again tries to kill Clouseau by planting a bomb while the Inspector (by periodic arrangement) duels with his manservant Cato (Burt Kwouk). The bomb destroys Clouseau's apartment and injures Cato, but Clouseau himself is unharmed, being lifted from the room by an inflatable disguise. Determining a more elaborate plan is needed, Dreyfus enlists an army of criminals to his cause and kidnaps nuclear physicist Professor Hugo Fassbender (Richard Vernon) and the Professor's daughter Margo (Briony McRoberts), forcing the professor to build a "doomsday weapon" in return for his daughter's freedom.
