      Shera Danese, also known as Mrs. Peter Falk, finally got first billing in this 1991 movie. She plays Trish Fairbanks in Columbo: Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star. Also appearing is Dabney Coleman as Hugh Creighton, a murderous lawyer. He’s not happy about his long time girlfriend’s cheating ways. The girlfriend, Marcy, was once a successful

      rock star who tries to blackmail Creighton. This is all very typical stuff. It’s a play for money between two people who think they can get the best on the other.

      As sometimes happens in these movies, the murderer has someone who tends to know more than they should. That’s Fairbanks in this case, and she blackmails him into becoming ...

        The bit I like the best in this caper is the item that Creighton provides to prove his alibi — a speeding ticket taken by a camera on the freeway. Columbo gets all the intel on how the automatic cameras work. These things are controversial to this day. It’s really an interesting segment, though.

        There is a continuity goof, though, because Columbo states he’s never had the top down on his car, but he did at least once in one of the regular episodes.

        The big reveal is a good one, and it was a little different from the norm. All in all, this was an okay show. It’s entertaining enough, and Columbo does his stuff wonderfully.
