Description by OLDIES.com:
Peter Falk dons his famous trenchcoat again as he returns in his 4-time Emmy Award-winning role as everyone's favorite Police Lieutenant in "Columbo: The Complete Fifth Season"! Join Columbo in this three-disc set as he asks all the right questions in some of the most deceptive and deadly cases. The fascinating fifth season also features such brilliant guest stars as Janet Leigh, Sal Mineo, Robert Vaughn, Ricardo Montalban, Hector Elizondo, Robert Loggia, Patrick McGoohan, and more. The landmark crime series returns, and no murderer can hide for long with Columbo on the beat!
The LAPD's most clever detective returns to solve more seemingly unsolvable murders in COLUMBO: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON. Peter Falk stars as Detective Columbo, whose disheveled appearance and lackadaisical investigations disguise his sharp and shrewd intelligence. COLUMBO became popular and famous for its clever dramatic structure and Peter Falk's winning portrayal of the detective. The show was unusual in that it was broadcast irregularly, but each episode was either 90 or 120 minutes long, a length more common to films than to a television series. Each episode opens with a murder, followed by Columbo's investigation, and finally his revelation of how he put the events together. This collection of episodes covers the entire fifth season.
