He starred in my favorite episode of "Columbo". These CBSRMT episodes are a treasure.


Richard Kiley was a first rate actor. A man of enormous talent on Broadway, movies and TV. I really loved and respected his work. I wish he had done more CBSRMT shows.

He was excellent in Radio Mystery Theaters "The Cask of Amontillado".


Yes Julie I agree. He was so sinister in that episode. He had a wonderful voice as well.


That was a brilliant performance!


He was mostly know for his role of Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha. He was in only two episodes of CBSRMT, but one was the Poe story A Cask of Amontillado in which he was superb.


That was Richard Kiley's brilliant performances.
