Columbo Murder by the book - retrofinds
"Murder by the Book" (1971)
This episode believe it or not was directed by Steven Spielberg!
Looking more like a unmade bed than one of the world's greatest homicide detectives, Lt. Columbo is still the best man to solve the mysterious death of a popular mystery writer.
Though he quickly finds the culprit, the killer (Jack Cassidy) has devised airtight alibis and Columbo must use all of his considerable faculties to trick him into a confession. Steven Spielberg's direction coupled with 's Peter Falk's flawless portrayal of the laid-back gumshoe, makes "Murder by the Book" one of the series' finest episodes.
I am a huge fan of Columbo and never grow tired of watching Columbo in action. Check out this original trailer for the episode Murder By The Book.
For a great book on Peter Falk read "Just One More Thing"
Its a very funny book and as Peter explains himself it is a book that can be read in small segments so you can read between breaks if required. I didn't. I loved the book so much I couldnt put it down.
