Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The setting for this 2-hour Columbo TV drama is a club for geniuses. One of the members is Theodore Bikel, whose business partner Sorrell Booke has been embezzling funds to keep Bikel's wife (Samantha Eggar) in luxury. Murdering Booke, Bikel calls upon his reserves of brilliance to cover up all traces of his crime. But he hasn't reckoned with Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk), who may not exactly be in the genius category, but is certainly no slouch when it comes to using his little grey cells. The key prop in this outing is a phonograph. Bye-Bye Sky High IQ Murder Case first aired May 22, 1977.
