Joe Dunne, stuntman who doubled for Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther films – obituary

Joe Dunne, who has died aged 86, was one of the film industry’s most highly regarded stuntmen and stunt co-ordinators during a 50-year career. Dunne was Peter Sellers’s stunt double in all his outings as Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther films. As stunt co-ordinator he devised some of the films’ best comic gags, such as Sellers’s hop off the parallel bars and down an open stairwell in The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976) and the golf cart being dumped off a dock in Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978).
