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.
