Providing the inspiration for the TV series Columbo, the theatrical predecessor Prescription: Murder tells the story of a brilliant psychiatrist and his mistress who hatch a plot to murder his neurotic, possessive wife.
The execution of their plan and the creation of their perfect alibi depends on a bizarre impersonation. They believe they have committed the “perfect murder”. That is until a bumbling unknown detective named Columbo, who always seems to have “just one more question”, is put on the case.
Prescription Murder is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
