Facts about

In "Prescription: Murder", the reception room at Dr. Fleming's office features a distinctive painting, of trees and white houses with red roofs, which is prominent in several scenes. This same painting later appears in Suitable for Framing, as part of the art collection sliced and stolen by Dale Kingston.
This film would later on become a subject of controversy due to a very politically incorrect line uttered to Dr. Flemming late in the film. Columbo says that Flemming will not be able to get away with the crime on account of the fact that he had employed a woman as an accomplice, since she wouldn't be able to keep her mouth shut. The woman, Miss Hudson, does subsequently spill her guts and Flemming is apprehended. Later on, in most versions of the movie, this line was removed, as it was deemed chauvinistic.
