The Columbo Confab Podcast

May 6, 2019

In "The Most Dangerous Match" (1973) chess champion Emmett Clayton (Laurence Harvey) realizes he's going to be outmatched by his Russian opponent Dudek, so he tries killing him in the most accessible way possible: pushing him down the hotel's industrial-sized garbage disposal machine.  This doesn't kill the man, however, only knocks him unconscious.  Even worse, Clayton is now being pestered by a detective in a rumpled raincoat and his incessant questioning.  Is "The Most Dangerous Match" fit for a king?  Or is it a disappointing gambit?  Listen to see what Steve and Sean have to say and find out!
