Fish Factor:
Fisher Stevens shines as Columbo's very worthy adversary. He portrays Alex Bradey, a murderous movie director. The movie is *very* good - but then Columbo movies usually are - if you're looking for a Fisher fix, you've definitely come to the right place!

This film is not available for purchase at the usual online video outlets.
Note: The film can occasionally be seen on cable's
Fox Family Channel.
