Goofs

Columbo enters the murder house through the front door in a pouring rainstorm. His trousers are wet, and he's wearing a hat and using an umbrella. While he is inside, we hear thunder. Then, Columbo steps out the back door, and into bright sunshine. Perhaps it could be argued that the abrupt change is consistent with Los Angeles weather patterns, but this would not explain how there is no rainwater anywhere on the deck, on the garbage cans, or in the sand.

Dabney Coleman is a good Columbo villain
13 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Dabney Coleman plays defence lawyer Hugh Creighton, who murders his long-term girlfriend Trish Fairbanks. In an elaborate cover-up, Creighton frames Trish's boyfriend Neddy Malcolm. When Lieutenant Columbo arrives to tell Creighton news of Trish's death, he puts on a great act of being upset. However, as time passes Columbo begins to suspect him of involvement in the murder. Dabney Coleman is a good Columbo villain, and he and Peter Falk try to outwit each other in classic Columbo fashion. Watch out for a guest appearance from Little Richard.
