Trivia

The studio stage roof-top set erected atop the Technicolor parking structure nearly covered the entire parking structure' surface area. After the set had been constructed, the Santa Ana Winds started blowing taking part of the set's roof area off the structure. The flats performed like sails flying off the North side of the parking structure during the night. The following morning, the prop maker crew carried the flats back to the roof structure, reassembling the set for the following day of filming of the scenes occurring on the setting. The winds cleared the haze for a spectacular bright sunny Southern California day. See more »

Goofs

Unrealistic time for elevator to reach the roof for a 4 story building- 1 minute & 58 seconds. Assuming 6 floors from basement to roof they want us to believe the elevator takes 20 seconds to reach each floor. Even 60 seconds is stretch, Combined with the flashes inside the elevator demonstrating how fast the elevator actually moved it proved the time frame set was more convenient for story line.

Stick to the re-runs
5 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remain a huge fan of Columbo reruns and taped what I thought was an original Columbo episode. Columbo wasn't in it the first 10-15 minutes, but I sensed something was terribly wrong. It was as if it was a show trying to be Columbo and trying way, way too hard. Then when a grizzled Peter Falk showed up and was way, way over the top, I realized it was a recent attempt at bringing back a once-great TV show. It was too sad to watch all the way through. This should never again be aired because it does the original TV show such a gross injustice. Falk overacts every single second of the show, trying so hard to be Columbo. The original Columbo was subtle. This Columbo was anything but.
