Pic of the Day: “Ransom for a Dead Man” revisited

It’s Labor Day here in the US, so let’s celebrate the working man (and woman) by revisiting Bert, provider of the world’s finest chili. He first appeared in “Ransom for a Dead Man,” the very first episode of the legendary Columbo detective series. It was first broadcast on March 1, 1971. Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk) could always count on a great bowl of chili and some good conversation from Bert.
