This week’s video is a full-length Columbo episode, in fact the very first Columbo episode. It’s “Ransom for a Dead Man,” premiering on March 1, 1971 and directed by Richard Irving. Timothy makes the first of his two series appearances as hash-slinger Bert (he was on the show three times in all, always as the purveyor of some kind of food).
The video quality isn’t the best, but beggars can’t be choosers, I guess. Enjoy this little slice of television history!
