Hayden Danziger is on a cruise with his older but much, much richer wife Sylvia. Rosanna Wells is on the same ship, as its singer. Rosanna and Hayden were recently lovers, after which Rosanna began blackmailing Hayden; so, having decided to kill her, he has planned the perfect crime - or so it seems, since Lt. Columbo is cruising on that very same ship and the captain has asked for his help.Written by

No bruise or mark ever shows on Rosanna Well's (Poupée Bocar) face, despite her having been punched hard with a man's clenched fist, enough to knock her down. Even with makeup such a contusion would show. See more »
Wait, Lieutenant, the man in the photograph... Do you think he's the one that did it?
Yes. But don't say anything. I haven't gotten him yet.

Robert Vaughn stars as Hayden Danziger, a used car salesman on a cruise to Acapulco with his wealthy wife Sylvia(played by Jane Greer) who has decided to murder his recent mistress, a lounge singer on the ship who is blackmailing him. Danziger concocts an elaborate alibi to establish his innocence, and implicate another boyfriend of hers(played by Dean Stockwell). By chance, a vacationing Lt. Columbo(Peter Falk) is also aboard, and asked to investigate the murder until the ship reaches Mexico. Can Columbo solve the crime before then? Patrick Macnee and returning actor Bernard Fox costar as ship officers. Mediocre entry has a good cast but a slack pace.
