Columbo's Hidden Talents

Columbo's Hidden Talents

From By Dawn's Early Light

Columbo was always either finding or revealing new talents -- he could do anything the killers could do, plus a few tricks of his own.

Some of those "hidden talents" is a shot of his notebook a doodle of the suspect Col Rumford (McGoohan).


From Murder By The Book

"I tell ya Mrs Ferris, I'm the worst cook in the world, but there's one thing I do teriffic, and that's an omelette. Even my wife admits it.


From Sex And The Married Detective

Columbo plays the tuba - in high school "it was the only instrument they had left"


From Dagger Of The Mind

Columbo can thumb-flip a pearl with pinpoint accuracy -- something he taught
himself in the 3rd or 4th grade (probably using a spitball) as a way to "get the attention of a pretty red-headed girl in the front row".
