Re: Which episode would be the best for 13-year-olds who've never seen Columbo before?

Peter Falk was the third actor to play Columbo, the first was Bert Freed on tv, the episode exists in some museum but they refuse to release it for anyone to get it in the shops as a retail product, the next was Thomas Mitchell in a stage play version which toured.

Oh, thanks God! I knew of those, but something in the way you said it made me think they had decided to carry on filming episodes with a different actor! I thought that, not being in the USA, I might have missed that information (I wouldn't have watched them, but I would have liked to have known of their existence - Same as with the Kate Columbo series).

Thanks!

“Murder By The Book” is the best way to introduce someone to the show, especially a youngster! It’s got the Spielberg connection to “wow” them. It’s got a good crime, great clues, good music, crazy and exaggerated characters, and of course Cassidy.
