  • I love seeing John Payne as Grace's old movie paramour

      Army Archerd is part of the introductory scene of Columbo: Forgotten Lady, doing what he always did so well, hobnobbing with the famous. In this case it’s Grace Wheeler Willis, who announces a new film on the red carpet. Grace is played with poise by Janet Leigh.

      One of my favorite scenes is when Columbo shows up at Grace’s home with his basset


      hound. The dog has ice cream all over his face and Columbo is teasing him. Then he tells the dog that they’ll go to the park when he’s done so the dog can have his run. This proves the dog is active in some ways, contrary to the usual claim that he just lays around and drools.

      Maurice Evans is delightful as ...


      • Grace’s butler, Raymond. He lends a credible old feel to the story.

        Sam Jaffe as guest stars early on as Dr. Henry Willis, Grace’s husband. He thinks the comeback attempt is ridiculous and forbids it, which ultimately leads to Grace killing him. She is enamored with the idea of returning to movies and reclaiming her glory. She watches her old movies

        nightly; it’s ritualistic.

        I love seeing John Payne as Grace’s old movie paramour. They fit together and are very believable as former Hollywood lovebirds.

        This is a superb opener for the fifth season of Columbo. It’s one I’ve seen dozens of times and never tire of. It’s also one of those where Columbo really feels attached to the murderer. He treats Grace like a legend.
