  • A maestro murders his mistress in order for her not to inform his wife about their affair.

    John Cassavetes who plays as Alex Benedict in the movie gives a fine performance. His shock and surprise at learning that his talented pianist has committed suicide is well acted; ensuring Columbo is aware of this.
    I did not particularly like the scene where Alex steals his own E-type Jaguar from the garage in order to reach his mistress to murder her. This did not really feature at a later stage of the movie.

    The flower left at the scene of the murder showed predictability of how Columbo would finally solve the case.
    Alexs' arrogance in the movie is reminiscent to his role in Rosemary's Baby.
