Columbo Meets Scotland Yard

Released 1972
Distributor Universal Studios

Dagger of the Mind, a Columbo episode from 1972 co-starring Richard Basehart, was treated to a theatrical release in Italy as Columbo Meets Scotland Yard. Though he sounds like Mastroianni in the trailer, Peter Falk still acts like the rumpled detective from Da Bronx.
