One thong that i could never explain in A Stitch in Crime is how did Mayfield have the time to alter the color of the suture? Dr. Heidelman was taken in for emergency surgery. Mayfield must have had some dye on standby (I guess).
I had to watch that episode many times, when I finally figured out how Columbo caught Dr. Mayfield. After surgery, the entire operating room was being searched, Dr. Mayfield pushed Columbo and put the suture in his pocket. I enjoyed that episode. Leonard Nimoy did a good job playing a murderer.
Speaking of which, grabbing some suture and rubbing dye on it, unless you are taking extraordinary precautions, is going to cause a raging infection that will kill the patient who gets this stuff near his heart, even before the suture dissolves. At least, that's what I was told by the doctor that I'm married to.:relaxed:
Columbo's hand and Columbo's coat seem to clean to me. Post up suture might have been sloppy with blood.
Please can somebody tell me why Dr. Mayfield killed Harry Alexander?
The Harry Alexander thing has been a bone of contention in this forum many times. The question comes up as to if Alexander actually died or was just drugged? We don't know the answer
Love that scene. It is one of the few times Columbo shows hes genuinely *******
It blocked out my word.
