Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Now You See Him was one of the more popular installments in the Columbo TV series. Jack Cassidy guest stars as "The Great Santini," master magician. Encumbered by a blackmailer, Santini decides to bump the fellow off. But he can't possibly be the guilty party--because, you see, he was on stage performing his famous "water tank" trick at the time of the murder. Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk) performs a few dextrous tricks of his own to wangle a confession out of Santini. Bob Dishy, Robert Loggia and Nehemiah Persoff co-star in this February 29, 1976 Columbo offering.
