Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Try and Catch Me could easily be the title of any episode of the TV series Columbo. It so happens, however, that this particular installment aired on June 23, 1978. Ruth Gordon guest stars as a popular mystery writer who turns one of her own plots into reality by bumping off her hateful nephew. She knows that Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk) is on to her, but she's counting on her own literary knowhow to throw him off the trail. Fat chance.
