Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection 1989

After not playing the legendary rumpled trenchcoat-wearing detective Columbo for around ten years in 1989 Peter Falk came back to the small screen with several television movies and five of them are found in this DVD collection. Never has a more seemingly inept detective solved so many cases and won so many fans in the process. Columbo was a detective that everyone could relate to as he had no bulging muscles or glamourous looks – he just solved every case that he came across. This was a character who had more ticks and mannerisms than your average Joe, but they never got in the way, usually they even helped, of him figuring everything out. Using his famous line of "One more thing" Columbo is able to slowly and politely solve crimes despite how each criminal believes he or she has committed the 'perfect' crime.
