Editorial Reviews

Peter Falk is back in all his rumpled, trenchcoat-wearing glory as police lieutenant Columbo in six captivating two-hour TV movies that aired between 1991-1993. Join the four-time Primetime Emmy® winner for “just one more thing” as he goes after sure-footed suspects with his offbeat wit, wily charm, and dogged persistence. Featuring such amazing guest stars as Faye Dunaway (Bonnie and Clyde), Penny Johnson Jerald (24), Little Richard, George Hamilton (Dynasty), Louis Herthum (The Last Exorcism) and Rip Torn (Men In Black), it’s a must-see-three-disc collection that will keep you on the edge of your seat with one of the mystery genre’s most beloved icons.

The episodes mentioned by the previous reviewer aired from 1994 to 2003. The episodes which should be featured on this set are as follows:

1. "Caution: Murder Can Be Hazardous to Your Health" - Feb. 20, 1991 (with George Hamilton)
2. "Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star" - April 29, 1991 (Dabney Coleman, Little Richard cameo)
3. "Death Hits the Jackpot" - Dec. 15, 1991 (Rip Torn, Gary Kroeger)
4. "No Time to Die" - March 15, 1992 (Joanna Going, Thomas Calabro)
5. "A Bird in the Hand" - Nov. 22, 1992 (Greg Evigan, Tyne Daly)
6. "It's All in the Game" - Oct. 31, 1993 (Faye Dunaway)

The next episode, "Butterfly in Shades of Grey" with William Shatner, was shown in Finland in Nov. 1993, but not in the US until Jan. 1994. I'm guessing it will appear on the final set, 1994-2003.

Of the above six, my favorites are 1, 3 and 6. But all of them are entertaining.

Getting straight to the point, "No Time to Die" is the lesser installment in this six-episode compilation. "Columbo" rarely strayed from its formula. In most episodes during Act I, the murder and the murderer is revealed. For the rest of the show, it becomes a cat-and-mouse game between the detective and the culprit as the show reaches a satisfying conclusion, usually with Columbo solving the crime in a most unorthodox manner.

"No Time to Die" doesn't follow the pattern, with a kidnapping as the central focus of the plot. While this is different, the installment is rather slow-moving, with several questions left unanswered. However, it's still "Columbo" and any time a viewer gets to see Falk in his trademark role, it's worth a look.

With that said, the remaining episodes feature great performances from guests Emmy-winner-for-the-show Faye Dunaway, Tyne Daly (deserving of one), Greg Evigan, Steve Forrest, George Hamilton (second time as a murderer), Dabney Coleman, and a deliciously-evil Rip Torn.

The one with Daly, Evigan, and Forrest, by the way, features more than the usual single death, making it a landmark one in the long-running series' history.

No extras on the disc but each episode is presented in widescreen format, something that no previous compilation had.

I'd been anticipating this latest installment of the Columbo series to add to my collection. I wasn't disappointed! "Murder Can Be Hazardous To Your Health" guest-starring George Hamilton, making his second appearance as a murderer in a Columbo episode, is very good. "Death Hits The Jackpot" is one of my favorites (a chimpanzee helps solve the case, what's not to like?) and Tyne Daly gives a great performance in "A Bird In The Hand".
I was a little disappointed with "It's All In The Game" (although I know many would disagree with me). The murderer's method and alibi are nearly identical to a season one episode "Suitable For Framing". Also, the flirtation between Faye Dunaway's character and Columbo is a little off-putting for those who consider Columbo's adoration and dedication to the mysterious Mrs. Columbo a core part of his character. All in all this is a great collection. Already looking forward to the last installment including "Butterfly In Shades Of Grey" with William Shatner and "Ashes to Ashes" with frequent Columbo guest star Patrick McGoohan.

I was disappointed to find these DVDs are widescreen format. Why? Well they were shot 4:3. To make them widescreen they cropped the top and bottoms of the images! Now I've got to decide between the recordings I made off of the TV (low quality but the entire image) or these cropped but higher quality shows. I'm not happy. Doing this sort of trick is about as bad as the Colorization fad some years ago. You might think the DVDs are modern, but you are getting less than you paid for!

Overall, this movie series is really good, I love the show and the character, and Peter Falk is one in a million. I was a little disappointed in these later movies - to keep up with modern morals in TV, there were racier sex scenes and more profanity, and Columbo allows the Faye Dunaway character to kiss him and he's excited about it... that wouldn't have happened in the early shows of Columbo, and I prefer the modest, almost prudish, character of the early days; they certainly don't make them like that anymore!

I recently bought Columbo's 1991-1993 Mystery Movie Collection and am very satisfied with four out of the six movies."No Time To Die" about a Family Wedding, should have stayed within that family! Bad acting all around. "It's All In The Game" a Mother and Daughter plan to murder their gigolo boyfriend who's been playing both sides!Faye Dunaway's acting killed this movie when she tried acting sexy. Columbo was playing a game of his own! Just One More Thing!!!!!!!!!!Gotcha!

The two later Columbo movie sets, 1991 through 2003, were cropped on the top and bottom so that the image will match the shape of a modern TV screen. (The two earlier sets, 1989 and 1990, were not cropped.) I really wish people would speak out against this reprehensible practice, which amounts to mutilating works of art.

I love the Columbo series. Product arrived ahead of time and was in great condition. I do not like the widescreen view. Takes away from the movie... everyone and everthing looks skinny.
