Wow! Today it's been over a year since we reported
that Columbo - The Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1992
was "coming soon." That was according to a screen card promoting the planned title, one that was found among the trailers on the July 2009 release of Murder, She Wrote - The Complete 10th Season
. That's a long time to wait, and fans have been asking us from time to time what the fate of this release turned out to be. Today we've found out!
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Columbo - The Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1993
(note the changed year!) would be coming out at last this February 8th
. It's a 3-DVD set with full frame video, English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound, and English subtitles. Cost is $26.98 SRP. Box art isn't available yet, but below is a copy-and-paste of the studio's description for this release:
Peter Falk is back in all his rumpled, trenchcoat-wearing glory as police lieutenant Columbo in six captivating two-hour TV movies that aired between 1991-1993. Join the four-time Primetime Emmy winner for "just one more thing" as he goes after sure-footed suspects with his offbeat wit, wily charm, and dogged persistence. Featuring such amazing guest stars as Faye Dunaway (Bonnie and Clyde), Penny Johnson Jerald (24), Little Richard, George Hamilton (Dynasty), Louis Herthum (The Last Exorcism) and Rip Torn (Men In Black), it's a must-see 3-disc collection that will keep you on the edge of your seat with one of the mystery genre's most beloved icons.
