Columbo - Butterfly in Shades of Grey Reviews:

William Shatner and Molly Hagan are reunited with Peter Falk for a second Columbo mystery, which is rather entertaining. Radio presenter Fielding Chase is very controlling of his adopted daughter Victoria (who is in the midst of writing a novel) thus killing her close mate Gerry Winters, who simply wanted her to branch out and lead her own life away from Chase. Actress Hagan is nice as Victoria, a naive young girl who wants nothing but to please her murderous father. Shatner on the another hand has given better performances in his long career, and seems confused and over the top.Peter Falk can portray the legendary Lt. with his eyes shut, and he simply (as always) brightens up the entire scenario. Funny gaffes contain our Lt being mistaken for a homeless person, and mostly his beat up old (but also lovable) vehicle continually backfiring! The situation comes to a satisfying conclusion featuring many cunning tricks from our Lt....As usual Columbo outwits the murderer!Butterfly In Shades of Grey is other enjoyable Columbo mystery and it's one I've seen many times, but there are stronger movies in the Columbo franchise that eclipse this nice but slightly low 1993 edition. It's definitely not the greatest in the series. 7/10


It's nice how viewers can see something different. Though I accept with the another commentator about Shatner's 'stache taking on a life of its own, I disagree with the comments about the actor's acting. While the two-hour film format is not as "tight" as the ninety-minute episodes, "Butterfly in Shades of Gray" is entertaining until the end.Some of the highlights contain the murder, the exchange between Falk's Columbo and Shatner's "Fielding Chase" in the restaurant, the argument between Shatner and his daughter, as well as the on-air revelation about a wayward senator.Dick DeBenedictus's score enlivens the storyline with the appropriate blend of mystery and suspense.


BUTTERFLY IN SHADES OF GREY makes the return of William Shatner to the COLUMBO TV series after he first appeared in it in the 1970s. Shatner is one of my favorite cult stars - I search him an actor it's impossible to not play - and he certainly lifts the material in what is otherwise a well-paced but fairly predictable Columbo storyline.Shatner plays a brash radio talk present host with a fixation on his adopted daughter. When other boy tries to break her away from him, he's driven to extreme means in order to dispose of the threat. The murder itself is quite straightforward here, relying on an unusual telephone-related alibi for the most part, and the resolution is fairly average.What lifts it is a typically assured performance from Peter Falk as the titular detective. Falk enjoys a handful of comedic moments in this one; they're quite familiar and have played out before, but there's plenty of mileage in them nonetheless. He also shares plenty of scenes with Shatner, and both actors are really enjoying themselves. You can't support but do so as well.
