Re: Paul Hanlon Clock

Lt. visited Hanlon after the murder and heard the clock go off.
That's how he realized " something that should be there, but wasn't" was the key to solving the case

Re: Paul Hanlon Clock

Eve Babcocks testimony about the bugs and Hanlon's payoff to her as Columbo alleged would also help tremendously.

You have to remember for TV viewing abrupt endings like this one are great.

Re: Paul Hanlon Clock

Seeing the gotcha moment when the killer is squirming and realizing he didn't do the perfect crime is satisfying. esp. with the cocky and arrogant ones.

Re: Paul Hanlon Clock

Mentioned this before but there is a clever subtle clue to the audience in the background music.

Watch the scene, where Columbo wanders around the empty stadium thinking. There is a scene where he is sat down and looks over to the boxes and you can actually hear a clock chiming as part of the background music.

Hi.

Yes, I thougt that, thank you, but it seems somewhat weak to me, Eric isn't a real "enemy". But thanks for the answer.

Regards.

Re: Paul Hanlon Clock

Hi,
He killed him because he didn't want him to drag the team down.

Re: Paul Hanlon Clock

The interplay between Falk and COLUMBO in that scene is amazing.
Culp's breakdown is some of the best acting in the series!
