A brilliant tort attorney gets rid of her boring husband by faking his kidnapping and keeping the ransom. The FBI may be fooled, but not Columbo.

Length 95 minutes

Actors

Peter Falk | Timothy Carey | Harold Gould | Paul Carr | Charles Macaulay | Celeste Yarnall | Lee Grant | Norma Connolly | Harlan Warde | Bill Walker | Jed Allan | John Fink | Richard O'Brien | Jean Byron | Hank Brandt | Richard Roat | Patricia Mattick | Judson Morgan

Viewing Notes

The second Colombo movie before they launched the series. Despite Columbo’s overt male chauvinism this is a pretty good flick. Helps having Lee Grant as the main lead opposite of the detective.
