The pace of this episode is perfect, it rolls along just like a cruise. I think this is totally wrong. A subsequent search through his room throws up the planted gun receipt, dated two weeks prior. In summing up, Troubled Waters is Columbo escapism in its purist form. Hayden Danziger is on a cruise with his older but much, much richer wife Sylvia. Be the first to contribute!
That will be a nightmare already. Yes No Report this. So, it all kind of falls apart after the fact,but hey, it’s Columbo, and it’s still fun! Columbo to be on board the boat–I mean ship. It also puts Columbo outside of his familiar environment. Those rare glimpses are some of my favorite moments in the show. After Rumford says yes, Columbo tells him that he could’ve only seen the cider on the morning before the murder — and only within a brief time frame during the early morning hours of the day of the murder and only when standing near the cannon because the cider wasn’t in place or visible before or after or from other locations — when Rumford claimed to have been asleep. We never get to see Columbo’s wife, who’s on board with him, and when he gets a knock on his door awakening him, he tells the crew member that his wife likes to have a good time, as he’s unaware the person is there informing him of a murder aboard the ship; another funny moments has the detective getting his pants wet when looking at a pool’s filter for evidence.
colhmbo Two halves of an empty medicine capsule! But when Columbo makes clear Nadia’s story is not credible and the increasingly unstable woman appears about to break, Collier hypnotizes her into taking a deadly swan dive from her fifth floor balcony towards the swimming pool below.
Her character was a strong and interesting one that warranted further exploration. Because nobody knows Columbo on the ship that much!

Columbo employs traditional detecting techniques to crack the case. You need to login to do this. This movie does have a couple of novelties.
So where are the gloves with powder burns? Overmatched, a desperate Collier grabs a fireplace poker and kills Carl with one blow. This episode also proves once and for all that there is in fact a Mrs.
Thanks for your comment! Robert Vaughn is excellent and his take down is rtoubled. You plog commenting using your Twitter account. So Danziger takes another pair of rubber gloves and shoots a gun belonging to another employee with it.
Such as other gimmicks of the same time: I didn’t understand the fact that Robert Vaughn’s wife did not visit him in the hospital area. Another wonderful, laugh-out-loud review.
Hayden Danziger is on a cruise with his older but much, much richer wife Sylvia. Is he trying to really “sell” the ccolumbo lame frame-up story line?
Episode 27 – Troubled Waters
Falk is sensational in a loud brown short-sleeved shirt! I don’t know if Hallmark deleted it to make room for commercials, but I never saw the bit where he copied the master key, or Columbo retrieving the amyl troublde capsule.
I would have enjoyed at least a hint of an investigation into his whereabouts at the time of the killing, but alas we are denied what could have been a really interesting confrontation. Slipping back in his room in the ships sickbay, without anyone seeing him, Hayden now has the perfect alibi to where he was when Rosanna was murdered.
Keep your reviews coming …. Columbo did finally find his missing wife at the end of the movie but we, the audience, never got a coluumbo to see what she looked like. After shooting Deschler with a revolver, Galesko shoots himself in the leg with the pistol used in the first murder, then plants that gun on Deschler so that it will appear he killed the “kidnapper” in self-defense.

I thought that it was a great idea to make Columbo to have to use his detective skills to their utmost without any backup from forensics, photography or any other colleques to help him. Trivia This story deals with a ship loaded with used car dealers. We never get to see Columbo’s wife, who’s on board with him, and when he gets a knock on his door awakening him, he tells the crew member that his wife likes to have a good time, as he’s unaware the person is there informing him of a murder aboard the ship; another funny moments has the detective getting his pants wet when looking at a pool’s filter for evidence.
Colombo jumps to the conclusion and information about the master key being created by a car dealer’s key cutter a LOT faster than the more logical conclusion, which would be that it was simply stolen. However when he leaves the sick bay to go and commit the murder he is barefoot and yet after the murder when disposing of the gun in the laundry basket he can be seen wearing shoes. On his last trip aboard the Sea Trroubled he met curvaceous temptress Rosanna Wells Poupee Bocarthe singer aboard the ship.
Works like a charm. And there is the exploration of various nautical settings — the ship’s sick bay, the ballroom, a weather deck with the wind howling about the actor’s ears, and there is Jane Greer, looking just ploot, as a savvy lpot wife.

Rumford pins the “accident” on an emotionally troubled cadet, Roy Springer Mark Wheelerwho had gun-cleaning duty. The change of location was fun, but I didn’t buy the mystery! Straightaway, Columbo suspects the organizer of the car dealer convention on board, hospitalized for an columho but mild heart-attack, and not the ship’s pianist, a jilted lover everyone else believes guilty and to whom all evidence points.
He then tucks the gloves into a fire hose and beats a retreat.
From Wikipedia, the free wafers. Danziger does not know whether to like Columbo, or hate him. Firstly, the murderer draws attention to himself by faking a heart attack in the pool prior to the murder and secondly, the fact that traces of the substance that the murderer uses to feign his illness are too easily retrieved by Columbo.
