And on YOU TUBE, you'll find a great 4 1/2 minute clip from "Death Lends A Hand"
featuring the ingenious "blue glasses" murder scene and Gil Mellé's cool music.
From the YOU TUBE description ... "To illustrate this highly-visual scene,
composer Gil Mellé injects a wide array of musical styles from musique concrète
to electronic music and jazz" ... superbly done.
(Gil Mellé also did the music for 2 other Culp TV movies -
"A Cry for Help" and "A Cold's Night's Death.")
There's another "Culp-Columbo" video up on YOU TUBE, but quite different.
It's called "Kings of Murder" and features footage from "A Most Crucial Game."
The background is "Queens of the Stone Age" music "You Would Know."
There are some great shots of Columbo confronting Culp at the end.
The beginning of the video is a bit strange, and there's a little dialog in French,
but hang in there. The YOU TUBE description is in French and it seems the episode
is called " Le Grain de Sable" (A Grain of Sand) when it was shown in France.
AND as long as you are hanging around YOU TUBE ....
"A NAME FOR EVIL" has just made an appearance over there.
(Yes, the full "Wardrobe Deficient" version.)
If you need to take baby steps towards this one, let me suggest you visit
Lisa's Consummate Culp site first for her complete review of the movie.
