    This is a great cat and mouse game and Robert Culp makes a great adversary for Columbo. Falk and Culp have a great deal of chemistry and that's why his and the late John Cassavetes made such opponents for everyones favorite raincoat wearing detective.
    Robert Culp, in his second outing as Columbo villain, plays football coach Paul Hanlon. Hanlon murders one of his clients and has a well constructed alibi- he was at the football game when it happened. However, Lieutenant Columbo is on the case, and it is not long before he is making a nuisance of himself. Culp puts in another fine performance and this is one of the best films in the series.
