Re: running down hill

Oh...I thought that was you who started this thread...even though it didn't quite "sound" like you..........thank heavens I didn't say something stupid!!!!!
I also thought it was strange, because I think you would know which episode the falling down the hill thingy was from.
And I'm not so sure it was a could have been....but I don't know.

Re: running down hill

It is quite strange how people have a certain "sound" even on a messenger board, and you can usually tell who someone is. I bet if we all posted under completely different names, or just numbers, we could guess who most people are (what their usual forum name is). And thanks Cassa for saying I would know which episode that scene was from. And for once, I actually did know !

Re: running down hill

You are quite welcome Paul!! You have grown up to be a big boy...and quite the Columbo Fan!!

And that is a cool idea....I wonder if anyone wants to try would that mean I would have to stop typing all these dots!!! (elipses)

Re: running down hill

With all the strange things going on here lately, maybe we shouldn't try it just yet

Re: running down hill

Good Point!!!

Re: Re: running down hill

That was always one of my favorite Columbo scenes because it seemed like something the real Columbo would do. I was exceptionally PO'd when Bravo cut that scene out of a rerun of that episode. To me that scene spoke volumes about Columbo the person.

Re: Re: Re: running down hill

I think you've made an excellent point! Which really brings up a related topic--are there any other scenes from other episodes that appear to be "accidental" but were left in because they seemed true to the plot or character?

Re: Re: Re: running down hill

The way this was filmed introduces the opportunity to use a stunt double. There are 2 breaks. 1. Peter 2. Double 3. Peter

You can view the scene on youtube and see what I mean.
