Music conductor Alex Benedict has an affair with a pianist. When the pianist threatens to reveal their affair to Benedict's wife, whose wealthy mother owns the company on which Benedict's career is dependent, Benedict decides to permanently silence his mistress. He arranges for her death to look like a suicide by kitchen stove gas asphyxiation. Lieutenant Columbo, a cunning detective in a rumpled raincoat, doesn't believe the pianist took her own life and suspects that Benedict was responsible for her death. He pesters Benedict with constant questions as he searches for clues to place Benedict at the murder scene. Written by

Did You Know?
During the rehearsal in the garden, the conductor tells the orchestra to play an "up bow" on the 4th beat of measure 29, and then he specifically points at the second violin section. Looking into the score you can see that the second violins have a break written in the notes at that point. It's only the first violins who actually play. He also instructs them to make a crescendo on the down bow but it wouldn't make any sense to divide the first violin bowing into two bows at that time. See more
