Shot In The Dark



Late at night at the country home of millionaire Benjamin Ballon, several of its occupants are moving about rooms, hiding and spying on others. The household consists of: Ballon's wife Dominique; Henri Lafarge, the head butler, and his wife Madame Lafarge, the cook; Miguel Ostos, the head chauffeur; Pierre, the second chauffeur, and his wife Dudu, the head maid; Georges the gardener, and his wife Simone, the second maid; Maria Gambrelli, the third maid; and Maurice, the second butler. The night's events soon end with gunshots in the room of Maria, and Miguel found murdered. Inspector Clouseau of the Sûreté, a bumbling and incompetent detective, is called out to the scene, accompanied by his assistant Hercule Lajoy. Suspicion is cast upon Maria, as she was found by Maurice clutching the gun that killed the victim. Before Clouseau can investigate further, his superior Commissioner Dreyfus removes him from the investigation out of fear he will bungle a high-profile case.




Shot in the Dark



Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) is called out to a mansion after the nighttime shooting of a chauffeur, which the audience has seen in the pre-credit sequence was a complicated intrigue involved different men skulking around the estate, just avoiding each other. The dead man was the ex-lover (possibly also the rapist) of the mansion's maid Maria (Elke Sommer), who was found holding the gun over his dead body. She claims she didn't kill him and that she can't remember anything about the fatal shot. Clouseau, immediately smitten, defends Maria. Even when other servants turn up slain around her, nothing convinces Clouseau of her guilt. Instead he insists to the increasingly exasperated Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) that Maria is covering up for the real murderer, probably a boyfriend. And the only way for Clouseau to find out the truth is to stay near her. At all times.

The Shot in the Dark Golf Tournament is one of the best events in town. This unique tournament at MeadowBrook Country Club is played at night, in the dark, with glow-in-the dark balls and glow sticks marking tee boxes, greens, and holes. The festivities begin at 7:00 pm with dinner, live music and the silent auction. Participants will compete in a $10,000 putting contest and begin teeing off.


A shot in the dark and a stab in the dark are two idioms that have the same meaning. We will examine the definition of a shot in the dark and a stab in the dark, where these terms came from and some examples of their use in sentences.


A shot in the dark may mean a wild guess or an attempt that has very little chance of being successful. A shot in the dark is usually attempted when all other ideas have failed, and may be considered a last-ditch effort. The idea is of attempting to hit a target without being able to see it. George Bernard Shaw is credited as being the first to use a shot in the dark in a metaphorical sense, in The Saturday Review in 1895.


A stab in the dark is a variant of the idiom a shot in the dark, and also may mean a wild guess or an attempt that has very little chance of being successful. Both a shot in the dark and a stab in the dark are used as nouns.


A SHOT IN THE DARK is the third mission of the GREED layer, and a level taking place in a low and dark level of the pyramid where the player is tasked with lighting fire pits to open doors and spawn enemies while also being limited to the player's vision of their surroundings.


When rich Mr. Benjamin Ballon's Spanish driver is found shot dead, Inspector Jacques Clouseau is the first official on the scene. All evidence suggests Maria Gambrelli, the maid, to be the murderer. But Clouseau, being attracted to the beautiful girl, is convinced that she is hiding something. So, he has her released from jail and secretly tries to follow her. Things do not work out the way the inspector wants and people keep ending up murdered, and every time, innocent Maria seems to be the killer. But with someone important wanting Clouseau and nobody else to cover this case, his tolerance-challenged boss Charles Dreyfuss is close to losing his mind when casualties keep turning up. And Clouseau keeps on causing trouble without knowing it...


Daytime darkness was important, for only against a dark backdrop could the special aurora borealis they sought be seen with the naked eye. But the main reason for coming to this place was not the dark sky, per se. It was what transpired far above it.


The Shot in the Dark die is presented as a carved six-sided die, symbolizing the one-in-six shot of success. In practice, rather than being rolled, a player intending to use their die would simply cast it in a box at the voting booth at Tribal Council before randomly selecting a scroll from the urn.


Michael drives to Erik's golf club and discovers his mother's car. Between trees, he finds Joey who is armed with a shotgun, ready to shoot his stepfather. He accuses Michael of making their situation worse rather than helping his family, but Michael can take away the shotgun from him and assures Joey that his plan is working and asks for his help to scare Erik who is armed with a gun nervously pacing up and down the parking lot.


Michael and Erik meets Michael's "people" Sam and Fiona. They assure Erik they can find the one who's after them. Soon later, Michael meets Fiona and Sam in his apartment to prepare their last step of their plan which involves pretended gunshot wounds. When they are ready, Sam calls Erik to tell him they found the guy he was looking for.


They take Erik to an alley where they use their bottle caps that they packed with a bit of plastic explosive to pretend Fiona, Sam and Michael are shot to death while Erik can escape. When the three get up, they are sure Erik is going to miss the custody hearing.


Nevertheless, Sam uses the listening device to monitor Erik's leaving. Unfortunately, his brother Quinn arrives while Erik is packing and prevents Erik from leaving the town. He thinks Erik acts like a lunatic and tells him that they will take his guys to find out what Erik is talking about. Sam calls Michael to tell him that Erik and Quinn are heading back to Hallendale where Erik saw them get shot. Michael reminds Sam of an operation in Moscow that could rescue their operation. 041b061a72
