Storyline

After her ex-boyfriend, mobster Tony Galper, dies in an accident in her home, Vanessa turns to club owner Justin Prince to help her out. He disposes of the body for her but unknown to him, tabloid photographer Linwood Coben secretly photographed him getting rid of the body. He tells Prince he can have the negatives and prints for $250,000 and Prince agrees to pay him. They meet that evening but Prince has every intention of killing him, making it look like Coben committed suicide. Reviewing the crime scene, Colombo immediately has his doubts about the suicide. To solve Coben's murder however, he will also have to solve what happened to Galper. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Freddie the Messenger confronts Lt. Columbo while seated in his car, they have a short conversation, then he presents Columbo with his Mafia business card, but the printed title on the card is all wrong. It reads COPO TUTTI DE COPO which has no meaning. The correct and very common expression in the underworld is Capo di tutti Capi, which means Boss of all Bosses. See more »

The Famous Old Raincoat
19 November 2003 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Columbo has been going for over 30 years in some form. The dear detective must be the oldest copper in the world. He also solves all these murder cases and never gets promoted or even a raise. In some ways that is the great charm of Columbo. A new episode is really comfort TV. You basically know what you're gonna get. Any deviations from the formula have been disastrous.This particular one is fairly routine fare with a silly script. Still, the bad folks are totally obnoxious as usual and you are always glad when they get what's coming to them.Peter Falk is magnificent as always, a fantastic seriously underrated star. Nightlife is not great but Falk makes it all work fine.
