Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Peter Falk stars as Lieutenant Columbo--and makes his directorial debut--in the 90-minute TV mystery Blueprint for Murder. This time around, the audience doesn't see the murderer commit the crime before Columbo enters the scene. Instead, we are asked to piece together the clues along with the shambling lieutenant as he tries to pin the killing of a tycoon on architect Patrick O'Neal. Janis Paige, Pamela Austin and Forrest Tucker guest star. Blueprint for Murder premiered as the February 9, 1972 episode of the Columbo series.
