Did You Know?

Trivia:
Robert Culp's character of Dr. Bart Keppel blackmails one person too many, thus resulting in the victim being killed. A similar situation befalls his character of Investigator Brimmer in "Death Lends a Hand".See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Although the plot turns on the effectiveness of subliminal cuts in films and Keppel mentions that the FCC had banned such cuts, the use of such subliminal advertising has never been proved to be effective and no such ban was made.See more »
Quotes:
Dr. Bart Keppel:Lieutenant, I know where you're coming from, and I know where you're going. It isn't very difficult to figure you out.
Lt. Columbo:[Feigning ignorance] I don't understand.

very solid, 13 July 2010
Author: stones78 from United States

I usually watch Columbo for the guest villains/murderers, and this episode stars the arrogant Robert Culp, who's in my opinion second only to Jack Cassidy as far as great guest stars/killers go. Culp perfectly portrays Dr. Bart Kepple, a research specialist who's responsible for this new fangled gizmo called subliminal messaging, and he's a very proud and confident man. The method of the murder is quite original, yet very risky, but Culp makes any routine murder that much more interesting. Kepple naturally underestimates Columbo, and tries to outsmart him, even though Columbo is adept at playing dumb to the arrogant suspect. Speaking of dumb, that award goes to the film projectionist, who stupidly blackmails Kepple and practically asks to get himself killed, in which Kepple obliges. Lastly, the conclusion is better than many other episodes, as Columbo uses Kepple's technique against him.
