    • "Murder Is A Parlor Game" from the TV spin-off Mrs. Columbo
    • Closed Captioned

    Synopsis


    Season three of Columbo finds the series still a rotating component of the NBC Mystery Movie, still starring Peter Falk as Lt. Columbo, a homicide detective whose sloppy appearance and scattershot methods adroitly hide the fact that he has a mind like a steel trap. Just as in the two previous seasons, Columbo invariably lulls murderers into a sense of security by appearing to be miles away from solving their crimes, only to be hoodwinked into tipping their hands by episode's end. The first of this season's eight episodes (each running between 90 and 120 minutes) is "Lovely But Lethal", featuring Vera Miles and Martin Sheen (guess who plays the title character). "Any Old Port in a Storm" finds Columbo zeroing in on wine producer Donald Pleasence, who after killing his brother arranges the evidence to make it seem as if the victim tied in a swimming accident. Jackie Cooper plays a politician who kills his campaign manager in a phony assassination attempt ostensibly directed at himself in "Candidate for Crime". In "Double Exposure," Robert Culp makes his third Columbo appearance, this time as a doctor-turned-filmmaker who pulls off a murder during the screening of a new production. Jack Cassidy, who appeared in the first Columbo episode back in 1973 shows up as a publisher who murders his best author while arranging an airtight alibi in "Publish or Perish." "Mind Over Mayhem" finds Columbo trying to prove that a brilliant scientist (José Ferrer) killed an associate to protect his plagiarizing son. Johnny Cash makes a rare acting appearance as a country & western star who arranges his wife's death in a plane crash in "Swan Song." And in "A Friend in Deed," Columbo is faced with the dilemma of bringing a police commissioner (Richard Kiley) to justice for committing murder to cover up another crime; this last episode was directed by Peter Falk's longtime friend, actor Ben Gazzara.

      ... I hate to mention it; but its been bothering me - you know sir: Columbo was such a great TV show, I mean my wife would never miss an episode, but the point is that having seen all of these shows when they were originally broadcast - I'm mean it was just so great to see them again to see if I could guess the ending - do you see my point sir? It's just very confusing to me ... well sorry to bother you; i'll be ending the review now

      Not only was I thrilled with completing my set, I like the service I get from Best Buy! When I opened the sealed DVD package, I found the product to be defective. Of the many years I've bought things from Best Buy, this was the first time I had to return an item. Best Buy replaced it immediately without issues!

      One of my favorite tv series from childhood and am delighted to be able to have it for my home movie collection. Great picture and sound quality! Watching these classics is like visiting an old friend. I'm looking forward to adding all the other seasons to make my collection complete.

      This series of tv movies is full of surprises. "Just one more thing ..." repeatedly always gets to the bad guys or gals. Also has a movie with Mrs. Columbo staring as a bonus.

      Couldn't wait for this season to get released as I lacked it for my library of NBC mystery night series. Really enjoy watching Columbo solve the crimes even though I know who did it.

      Peter Falk wears an old raincoat and slowly solves the cases. He likes to reveal the clues a little at a time.

      Each of the episodes are mini movies. If you see one episode the others are very similar.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
