If you watch the original airing of the pilot at the very end when they are performing on stage supposedly the lieutenant shows up in the back of the theatre. You can see a back shot of a man in a rumpled raincoat with curly hair. See more »
Kate Mulgrew was born April 29, 1955 and hadn't yet turned 24, by the time the show made its debut in 1979. The character of Mrs. Columbo had been referenced since Lieutenant Columbo's first appearance in 1968, when Mulgrew would've been 13 years old. See more »
Mrs. Columbo as a title got my attention right away. I had seen several Lt. Columbos, including the actor who first created the character, Bert Freed --IMO the best of the lot; I thought Falk stank as the detective. It was my first look at a female detective, and my first exposure to Kate Mulgrew. I instantly fell in love with her. Her character was appealing in a number of ways: she was self-assured, competent, calm and cool. She could -- and did -- handle anything that jumped up to bite her. Kate is still my pick of all female detectives, and Mulgrew is a goddess. As an actress she can do no wrong. As to the series itself, I found the plots much more realistic, in a true-to-life way, than those of her "husband" or of almost any other crime show that was then on the air. So here are two "best Columbos," Mulgrew and Freed.
