TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 2 February 2013
This DVD contains 3 great episodes from the peak years of the early 70s. There is a great moment in 'Candidate for crime' where Columbo effectively does his "Just one more thing Sir" line 3 or 4 times to the murderer. Its just brilliant, and works because of some some great acting from Jackie Cooper and of course Peter Falk.

John Cassavetes stars in 'Etude in black' and if anything this is even better. When Falk and Cassavetes are on screen together there is a special chemistry that doesn't happen very often. The previous reviewer is correct they were friends and worked together outside of Columbo as well. The ending to this episode is not quite as good as 'Candidate for crime' as technology has moved on so much that what would have been a complete surprise in the early 70s now just seems rather obvious, but it doesn't detract from a classic episode.

'Suitable for framing' doesn't have another major star in it, but its a good episode nevertheless.

This is available very cheap and if you don't want all of Columbo its a great and representative sample of the classic 70s era shows.
