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 mistake.....it could have been....but I don't know.
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 !
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 it.....now would that mean I would have to stop typing all these dots!!! (elipses)
With all the strange things going on here lately, maybe we shouldn't try it just yet
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.
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?
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.
