Grace Wheeler Willis was a star, a very famous star. Every night in her house she sees one of her old movies. When she decides to set up a new show and her husband refuses to finance it, Grace coldly kills him staging a suicide. Lt. Columbo is not deceived from her performance. But at the end the murderer will escape her sentence, or perhaps not. Written by

Did You Know?
In a scene just after the start of the movie Grace walks over to the nightstand next to her husband's bed to put a sleeping pill in her husband's milk, which is on a silver serving tray. Grace puts her glass of brandy on the nightstand NEXT to the silver tray. The next shot is a close-up of her putting the pill in the glass of milk. Her brandy is now right next to the milk on the silver tray. See more
