FIVE FEATURE-LENGTH INSTALLMENTS OF THE GENRE-BUSTING TV CRIME SERIES STARRING PRIMETIME EMMY� WINNER PETER FALK

COLUMBO MYSTERY MOVIE COLLECTION 1989

An All-New Collection Featuring TV's Most Disarming Detective Comes to DVD April 24, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Universal City, Calif. -- March 12, 2007 -- Legendary actor Peter Falk returns to don his familiar rumpled trench coat and step into his four-time Primetime Emmy�-winning role when Columbo Mystery Movie Collection 1989 comes to DVD on April 24, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Columbo Mystery Movie Collection 1989 includes five all-new, feature-length telefilms from 1989, just waiting to be solved by the LAPD's most ingeniously unassuming detective. Ten hours of content on three discs includes oodles of star power with appearances from a bevy of celebrated actors including Lindsay Crouse ("Buffy, The Vampire Slayer") and Fisher Stevens (Factotum). The collection also includes a half-hour documentary, "America's Top Sleuths," a countdown of the most memorable fictional crime fighters in television and film history.

This landmark series sets the TV crime genre on its ear, opening each movie by revealing the villain behind a meticulously planned murder. Armchair detectives follow along as the seemingly bumbling detective's unorthodox techniques uncover clues that help him zero in on the perpetrator. Falk's portrayal of absentminded Lt. Columbo has been an audience favorite for more than 30 years, ranking seventh on Bravo's list of Top 100 Characters of All Time. Columbo has won a total of thirteen primetime Emmy� Awards, including Falk's four Best Actor nods, as well as a Golden Globe� Award for Outstanding Drama Series. The three-DVD set is priced at $26.98. Preorder close is March 20, 2007.

SYNOPSIS

With his perpetually disheveled attire and trademark stubby cigar, Lt. Columbo of the LAPD hunts down some of the city's most resourceful criminals in this all-new DVD collection of movies from 1989. A host of terrific guest stars face off with Columbo in five complex games of cat and mouse, as the dogged detective uses his unique mixture of observation, deduction and uncanny intuition to flush out the culprit. After lulling suspects into a false sense of security, the shambling Sherlock closes in with razor sharp insights that prove that appearances can be deceiving. Columbo Mystery Movie Collection 1989 combines quick-witted writing and a slyly funny, tremendously talented star in one of television's most original and beloved detective series. Oh, just one more thing� No murderer can hide for long with Columbo on the case.
