This time Columbo pits his wits against a movie director who murders an old friend on a set, because this friend is in possession of a damaging piece of film, on which the actress died and isn't helped by the movie director. Written by

When Columbo talks to Alex Brady on the crane from inside his car (at around 1h 14 mins) he first holds his cigar on the left hand outside the car. Next shot the cigar is in his right hand inside the car near the steering wheel. A moment later he holds the cigar again in his left hand outside the window. See more »
This Columbo has everything that you'd expect from a good Columbo: great dialogue, a bright murderer who only makes a few tiny mistakes and a wonderful setting (a movie studio) which adds interesting metaphores and storylines. Columbo is getting older, but not worse, and I enjoyed watching this from the beginning to the end.
