Dick, Columbo & JoAnna Cameron

JoAnna Cameron with Dick Van Dyke on COLUMBO

Actress: JOANNA CAMERON Known for: THE SECRETS OF ISIS Project: COLUMBO Year: 1974 Episode: Negative Reaction Genre: Crime Mystery Character: Lorna McGrath Traits: In a fourth season episode, Dick Van Dyke plays a famous photographer who hires ex-convict Don Gordon to purchase a rural cabin that Dick uses to kill his “kidnapped” wife in and… to make a long story short, he pulled off one helluva perfect double-murder that only the “shaggy terrier” Lt. Columbo, portrayed brilliantly by Peter Falk, could figure out while JoAnna Cameron is Dick’s sexy secretary who he’s planning an out-of-country trip with, part of the reason his nagging unattractive wife had to go: As often happens on COLUMBO dealing with high class culprits, JoAnna’s the trophy girlfriend who makes the killer seem more shallow, and guilty. The Best Part: There are so many looks to JoAnna, she is often hard to recognize until the realization that it’s her, one of the most naturally beautiful vixens ever, a cross between Victoria Principal, Jane Seymour and… you choose: And yet JoAnna, billed here as Joanna without that big A, stands completely on her own, always. You Missed: Cameron starred in her own TV series that made Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman seem like The Avengers… THE SECRETS OF ISIS is a pricey DVD but oh what glorious cult fare, and pretty good stories to curb the camp.

Dick Van Dyke sheds crocodile tears & gains a trophy
