Dean Stockwell is a no-good playboy who owns a football team but it’s Robert Culp (again! and also R.I.P.) who is running the show. Now, the playboy won’t do as he’s told so Robert Culp drives to his house disguised as an ice cream man and hits him over the head with a block of ice.
Columbo appears at 17 minutes and 23 seconds, he gets his shoes wet. He also accidently goes to a prostitute but there’s no intercourse involved- he only questions her regarding murder. The columboid- the striking clock should’ve been on the tape and wasn’t.
In this episode we learn that Columbo has a new hammock, his wife likes bowling, he will only pay $16 or $17 for a pair of shoes, he eats chilli again, he has a nephew that married a girl with a Hungarian accent and thinks ding a ling ice cream is the best in town.
During this episode I ate an Easter egg.
