Movie Info

Suitable for Framing is a 90-minute episode of TV's Columbo series. The special guest murderer this time is Ross Martin, playing an erudite art critic. Rather than submit to blackmail, Martin bumps off an awkward colleague and tries to pin the blame elsewhere. It's obvious he has no idea what's in store for him when Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk) waddles onto the scene. Kim Hunter and Don Ameche also appear in Suitable for Framing, which was first broadcast November 17, 1971. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Columbo: Suitable for Framing

Predictable and mundane, Suitable for Framing is a passionless crime thriller. The story follows an art critic who kills his uncle in order to inherit his art collection, but to succeed he'll have to manipulate the police and Lt. Columbo into arresting his aunt-in-law for the crime. The plot's rather obvious, although it does a good job at staging the climax where Columbo reveals how he solved the case. And, there are some strong supporting performances from Don Ameche and Kim Hunter. Suitable for Framing isn't necessarily bad, it's just poorly executed.
