Presentation [ edit | edit the code ] Edit

Columbo is a special case of television series in the sense that there are no generic common to all events - except for a jingle, This Old Man (as) , who returns episodically, usually whistled by the inspector and sometimes orchestrated - and regularly disseminated since 1968 . The inspector Columbo is embodied by theactor American Peter Falk throughout the series.

This character, initially created by writer William Link , was partially inspired by the inspector Fichet in the movie Diabolique as well as Porfiry Petrovich in Crime and Punishment and the detective priest Father Brown . He had already been interpreted by two actors: Bert Freed in 1960 for the episode titled Enough Rope of the television series The Chevy Mystery Show, then by Thomas Mitchell (his latest role) in 1962 in a stage adaptation of the same episode, Prescription: Murder (original title and plot reused for the first played by Falk Columbo).

A 403 cabriolet .

A basset hound .

The inspector Columbo police brigade criminal of Los Angeles ( LAPD ). He is blind, wearing a raincoat worn beige and drives aPeugeot 403 convertible gray whose condition deteriorates as and the evolution of the series, the point of having a dilapidated appearance contrasts comically with vehicles often luxurious of his interlocutors. It is sometimes accompanied by his basset hound he calls "the Dog". He regularly smokes the cigar . He frequently refers to "his wife", in particular to justify some of its findings (eg hourly tours from street glaciers in the episode The grain of sand), at least by presenting it as the ideal companion. An episode revolves around an even attempted poisoning of his wife , without ever showing it.

The first feature of this series is to always show the murder at the beginning of the episode : well, the viewer immediately knows who is the murderer, which goes against the usual police fictions. In addition, the inspector Columbo mark fairly quickly the culprit (always a person in high society), without the viewer knowing necessarily what stage recognition is total, and invariably confuses thanks to a small detail. For the viewer, the question is not to know who the murderer or Columbo will prove his guilt, but how he will prove it.

To investigate, Columbo goes every day to ask new questions to the point of often irritate his interlocutors, the climax being the legendary "Oh! one more question! "Arm raised, on our way out. He knows how to convey to its suspects a kind of fool and a rough character for better sleep vigilance. However, his tone knows harden by exposing proven indictment late episode, therefore, the accused often carries him at that time an admiring look on his great intelligence and competence. One can also meet its commitment over the investigation: the expertise that demand, various checks, his obstinacy certifying serious, sometimes up to take extreme risks as to destroy a huge pillar of building under construction in Fatal City episode. He knows also be directive with subordinates, anxious also to report to his superiors, one can easily guess, give him a confidence without limits. Threats of suspects exceeded "to refer to his superiors" never seem to touch. Another feature: Columbo almost never weapons and does not appear to be a keen shooter. This makes it less possible forensic service do not support the view of the viscera and other samples that the coroner often like to show him.

Steven Spielberg and Jonathan Demme have both made ​​some episodes in their infancy; and John Cassavetes . Steven Bochco was one of the screenwriters. Patrick McGoohan achieved and also interpreted several episodes.

Henry Mancini composed the theme music for several episodes, such as the witness book, False Witness, Deadweight, Full Frame ...

After being discontinued in 1978 , the series was revived in 1989 , again with Peter Falk . The last episode date of 2003 .

Biography [ edit | edit the code ] Edit

Main article: Columbo (character).

During its investigations, Columbo talk much to say nothing (which also strengthens the character of the comic character) and speaks of him in particular, giving over the different episodes about his life and his tastes.

We know as well that Frank or Bob Columbo was born and raised in New York . Living not far from Chinatown , his family consisted of grandfather and his parents, three died and five siblings. His father wore glasses and did the cooking while her mother was in the hospital giving birth again. His grandfather let him tread the grapes when it was making wine in the cellar. It is of Italian origin by both parents.

However, in episode 23, Beyond madness (Mind over mayhem), Columbo discusses his children and his wife left to visit her mother in Fresno (17 th minute).

Columbo's father, who never won more than five thousand dollars a year, taught him to play pool, an obsession that will remain stuck to the future inspector. Far from being a model child, he broke street lights in the streets, playing pinball and was part of a band of brats always looking good joke to do ... It evokes an episode it ' Perhaps to catch all the jokes he could do child he became a policeman. The hero of his childhood was Joe DiMaggio , he also loved gangster movies.

During his studies in high school, he dropped chemistry and took woodworking. We know him at the time a girlfriend named Theresa . After his military service during the Korean War , Columbo entered the NYPDand was assigned to the twelfth district (when in fact this district was abolished in December 1916 by the authorities of the City of New York ). It was formed by the Gilhooley Sergeant (Sgt Anthony in VF), a great Irishman who tried to teach him the art of playing darts, but also taught him to think. He moved to Los Angeles in 1958. He married in 1961 .

Columbo has a basset called "the Dog" because it reacts to any name. In general, we never saw the dog Columbo obey any of his orders. A note Columbo at the end of the episode when the wine is drawn (Any Old Port in a Storm) and another at the beginning of the episode Beyond madness (Mind over mayhem) show that it has children, and he said at the 50th minute of the episode The Burial of Mrs. Columbo (Rest in Peace, Mrs. Columbo) he has a daughter (who left home). But all the rest of the series suggests the opposite (including the fact that Columbo, which never fails to allude to any other member, near or far, her family prefers to mention a nephew or cousin his own children).

In the series Mrs. Columbo, the couple has a daughter, Jenny , and Kate Callahan, a journalist by profession, is believed to have divorced her husband. Yet even after the divorce, Columbo continues to refer to his wife. This suggests that they have remarried, he has a new woman, or that it is part of the naive policeman character he plays to trap his opponents ... or simply that no consistency effort n ' was sought between the series Mrs. Columbo , who quickly was a failure, and his illustrious predecessor.

To add to the confusion, Columbo made ​​a surprise appearance in the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast of Frank Sinatra, the <time>7 February 1978 </time>Where he asks Sinatra an autograph for his wife, asking him 'to just write for Rose' .

It also gives the name of his brother, George, in episode 5, dead weight (Dead Weight) and that of his niece, Merilim, the daughter of his wife's sister. Divorced and remarried to a policeman, she has six children.

Columbo is still obsessed by the most insignificant details. Small things keep him awake all night and he likes to sketch ideas with his wife. Never carry a gun and drives a Peugeot 403 cabriolet 1959. It is subject tovertigo and seasickness , he can not swim . It is easily disgusted and do not support the autopsies, or even the mere sight photographs of murders "unclean." Columbo is a phlegmatic character.

In sixty-nine episodes, it really irritates only once against Dr. Barry Mayfield ( Leonard Nimoy ) in episode 6 of season 2: The Specialist (A Stitch in Crime).

It is not very versed in math. He likes cooking, limericks (five poems in verse, always comical and absurd), the westerns , the opera Italian, the waltzes of Strauss , the golf , the classical music , Louis Armstrong ,Bette Davis , the bowling , the detective novels and soccer on TV. He can also play the tuba. He claims to be an expert in TV setting, when he did that once and the button remained in his hands ... He recognizes himself in knowing anything about computers or fax.

In 1972, he won eleven thousand dollars a year. It is always close to his money, so much so that, for their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, he plans to take his wife to camp rather than offer him a silver object; it's never hesitates to rest quietly retrieve a cigar or a handy chocolate. His favorite food is chili (with crackers) devour in a popular restaurant that really existed, Barney's Beanery in West Hollywood . Columbo also loves coffee he drinks black, boiled eggs serving as its appetite suppressant. He speaks English, Italian (although he claims to ignore this language during a conversation with the mobsters Vincenzo Fortelli ) and some Spanish.

However, all these elements biography should be taken with caution because the information gives Columbo on itself are rarely found. The many references he makes to a particular family member serve as a pretext so often from a suspect one can doubt their veracity. In episode 67, in large pumps (Ashes to Ashes), he attributes to a cousin information we saw him squeeze a taxi driver he does not know, which confirms the hypothesis that invents most allusions to his family. Besides in episode 61, Single suffice (A Bird in the Hand), he said to a suspect If you believe everything you said a cop, you're a fool.

Comments [ edit | edit the code ] Edit

The mysteries of the series [ edit | edit the code ] Edit

  • We do not know the name of Columbo. It is always in this form: Lieutenant Columbo. In episode Deadweight (Dead Weight), it is nevertheless possible by a still picture of distinctly read his signing with Frank Columbo on his card. In the Black Symphony episode (Study in Black) means the veterinarian call by the name Bob (about 23 minutes). The intention of the series is never to reveal his name, it seems that "Frank" is a creation of the props of the series. You can also see a photograph of the card Columbo on the English version of the article, and in season 5 in A Question of Honor (A Matter of Honor), we find the photograph of the police board early the episode when the car accident where one sees clearly written "Frank" . Also, in the episode Between dusk and dawn (By Dawn's Early Light), Patrick McGoohan asked her name but Columbo begs the question by saying that only his wife calls him by his first name.
  • We never saw his wife or the first name known thereof. The writers of the show constantly playing on this invisible omnipresence. Numerous clues can trace "hollow" the biography and personality of his wife.
  • Everyone's Time (No Time to Die) is the only episode where one can see a member of his family, his nephew Andy, a police officer (played by actor Thomas Calabro ). A singular episode at least where the wife of Andy, Melissa ( Joanna Going ) is kidnapped on their wedding day, forcing our inspector to take the investigation in hand.

Kate Columbo Callahan (Mrs. Columbo, Kate Mulgrew )

A spinoff, Mrs. Columbo (Mrs. Columbo) was launched in 1979 , but received a very hostile reception and was quickly stopped. It disappointed fans of the original series thatMrs. Columbo was divorced from Inspector Columbo. And as many episodes showed the inspector speaking of his wife, it was unthinkable that they should be divorced!
