Gene Barry is magnificent throughout. And of course Falk is already beginning to evolve the amusingly scatter-brained persona of the title detective (sort of a cross between Inspector Clousseau and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson). Featuring some very nice directorial touches too early on (the hand hitting the piano and Barry unexpectedly reentering the picture to answer a phone). And the segment where Columbo attempts to sign on with Barry as a patient ("I seem to annoy people") is absolutely hilarious. Only one jarring note in the proceedings: when Columbo starts going all medieval on Ms Hudson toward the end. I always think it's better when he retains his court-jester attitude the whole while...so you never ARE exactly sure whether he's setting you up or whether he really is like that.
