Comment:        RE: SHK 15.2018 Columbo and Shakespeare?

Is it relevant to note that there's a Columbo film from 1972 entitled
*Dagger of the Mind*?

"Lilian Stanhope and Nicholas Frame are two actors in London. They have
to act in Macbeth and the producer is Sir Roger Haversham who is
Lilian's lover. Sir Roger finds out he has been deceived by the couple
and he threatens to interrupt the performance. Lilian kills him
accidentally during a fight and afterwards the two actors take the
corpse to his mansion, staging an accident. But Lt. Columbo is in London
to learn about the new methods to investigate used by Scotland Yard. And
Columbo smells something fishy in the accident."

As per previous post, I had awakened suddenly to the obvious thought
about Hamlet and Columbo. As for Porfiry, he never plays it stupid. I'll
ask some folks who know detective fiction.

Unless, of course, the writers have definitive knowledge from people
connected with the show that Porfiry was consciously in mind.

Best,
HR Greenberg MD

Comment:        Re: SHK 15.2012 Columbo and Shakespeare?

There has been an article published which deals specifically with an
episode of "Columbo" and its Shakespearean connections. This may be the
paper being sought:

Margaret Rose Jaster. "The Earnest Equivacator: Columbo Undoes Macbeth".
_Journal of American Culture_ 22:4 (1999 Winter),51-55.

Hope this helps,
Erica
