The 7 May 1953 edition of "Brookyln Eagle", who had presumably seen a preview of this episode, called this a "top-notch production" and commented that David Niven and Rhys Williams...

First of the Peter Sellers Inspector Clouseau comedies and the only one that doesn't have the character Chief Inspector Dreyfus played by Herbert Lom. Strange as it seems now, during the early stages of production it was thought of as a star vehicle for David Niven, not Sellers. TRIVIA: The second Clouseau comedy, "A Shot in the Dark," was released only three months after this film. Its trailer is in this collection.

David Niven is an amiable safe-cracker who devises an ingenious but simple way of escaping from custody. Originally aired 2 June 1955 (Season 3, Episode 35). Don't bother downloading the h.264 file; the Cinepack file from which it is derived is smaller.

Popular TV anthology series of 1950s. This episode is set during 1902 and is about a man who creates a scheme to increase his salary. Amusing bit of fluff, and anything with David Niven is worth seeing. The episode also features Marjorie Lord and Willis Bouchey.  This episode was originally telecast 11 March 1954 on CBS. Unfortunately, opening titles are missing from this copy (I had to remove them due to copyright issues...the copy on the disc has heavily altered opening titles)
