Columbo: Dagger of the Mind Reviews:

I may be biased, but I have yet to see a Columbo episode I absolutely hate. Even with its problems, I did like Dagger of the Mind. It is quite slow in pace, with a rather thin plot and the build up to the finale I accept should have been better. But the scenery and photography are wonderful, the script does have its humorous moments, the direction is nice enough and the melody is effective. The acting is fine, Peter Falk is nice no trouble with him whatsoever, while Honor Blackman is wonderful, looks pretty and has some memorable scenes with Columbo. Richard Basehart overdoes it a bit, but he seems to be having fun too. Overall, worth watching if not the greatest Columbo. 7/10 Bethany Cox


Despite the terrible press which this episode generally receives, I rather like it. The plot is a touch far-fetched to be sure and the collapse of the murderer (one of them in this instance)on the flimsiest of evidence is par for the Columbo course but I was held by it and play it on repeats.BUT.....there are a several faults, viz: * Changing the stage from LA to London and using an almost entirely British cast is fine, so why then test an American actor(Richard Basehart) for one of the main roles and moreover testing an Englishman? He is clearly uncomfortable in the part and his accent, while not as bizarre as Dick van Dyke's, is still awful.Was it to give the episode some USAppeal? * Possibly the murder of Tanner, which I have never seen, does detail in some versions but I am left perplexed as to how Nicholas managed to hang him in a method that looked like suicide. Killing him first, even strangling him with the rope and then doing so, would be altogether too simple for the police to detect. I can't imagine that he told something like "Would you mind standing on this chair with a rope round your neck, old boy. Nothing to worry about!". So how......? * You everytime expect errors when American movies are set in England (usually geographical - see '23 Paces to Baker Street' and 'Knock on Wood' for some true howlers) and others have covered some of them here. However there is a rather strange double error in the London Wax Museum (presumably they were not allowed to refer to Madame Tussaud)where the English Lilian refers to "drapes" and the American Columbo mentions "curtains". Someone seemed to know the correct respective terms but then got them confused.* Another reviewers are correct. Some of the attitudes were silly and patronising - right at the end Durk now tells "By Jove!". I suppose someone just had to.


This may not be the greatest ever Columbo episode but as it's set in England it remains a favorite of mine.Apart from the plot the main interest lies in zone spotting. We receive scenes at London airport and outside Fresh Scotland Yard near Victoria Road which means Columbo should pass Buckingham Palace on the way.The "London Wax Museum" is now the Imperial College Library, near the Science Museum in South Kensington (also used as a zone in "The Ipcress File"), but it does let an impressive closing shot of the Albert Hall. We also receive to see the Royal Court Theatre and lots of English rain.Apart from that I'm not sure how much of the movie was shot in the UK. The stately home has a definite California feel.This is a nice Columbo entry, only marred by the usual American view of the British: we're either "Pip, pip, old boy" types or " Gor blimey, gavner" cockneys. At the time this was made the top cop present in the UK was 'The Sweeney'. Columbo meets Regan and Carter, actually that would be worth watching: "Oh, just one more thing sir, er...you're nicked!"
