Trivia

Although Peter Falk wanted Patrick McGoohan to both act the killer's role and direct the MOW, McGoohan declined acting in the project. Billy Connolly was cast in the role. During filming, Patrick McGoohan became exasperated with Connolly for not learning his scripted dialogue. Patrick was a stickler on line delivery, since Patrick usually rewrote, revising scenes and dialogue related to the scenario. Another factor came into a scene's filming when it became apparent that Billy Connolly had imbibe in alcohol all afternoon, slurring his dialogue. Peter Falk was performing a scene with Billy Connolly in the recording studio set when Patrick McGoohan interrupted accusing Connally of being drunk! An ensuing argument occurred between Connolly and McGoohan, lasting about twenty minutes. The actors disappeared in their off stage dressing room trailers. An hour later, filming resumed. Connolly knew his dialogue for the rest of the filming schedule. See more »

Classical - Not!
12 March 2002 | by (Derbyshire, England) – See all my reviews

Having seen almost all the Columbo movies I was disappointed by this latest offering. Peter Falk was trying hard to recreate his best form as the raincoat claden detective but sadly fell short.

The character interaction was predictable and with the likes of Patrick McGoohan directing (again) and the ever 'loud' and 'outrageous' Billy Connolly one would have hoped for a far better script to do justice to this great series of TV movies.
