Columbo attaches a crocodile clip to the record player arm after it starts to play. This should have caused the music to skip a few tracks. See more »
I was an imitation adult, because that's what was expected of me. Most people don't like smart people. Most children despise smart children. So, early on, I had to hide my so-called gift... painful, lonely years.

I agree it's entertaining. Peter Falk as Columbo is always entertaining and even in this one. It's an odd title though from his others. Don't miss Jamie Lee Curtis as the uptight waitress and the great British actress, Samantha (I forget her last name) as the unhappy spending wife of the prime suspect. It takes place at a club house for the geniuses of SOuthern California and the prime suspect is a genius who kills his partner genius rather than lose his fortune. Of course, the smarter the prime suspect in Columbos, the harder it is catch them or at least we think so. Anyway, Columbo does his best job to make sure he catches his man or woman. Of course, this episode is not one of my personal favorites but it's always worth watching again.
