Nimoy's public profile as Spock was so strong that both his autobiographies, I Am Not Spock and I Am Spock , were written from the viewpoint of sharing his existence with the character.

Many years later as Captain Kirk, I would be busy rescuing civilizations in distress on distant planets while Leonard's Mr. Spock would be examining the morality of man- and alienkind.
He became a devotee of method acting concepts derived from the teachings of Konstantin Stanislavsky , realizing the stage allowed him to explore the "psychological, emotional, and physical territories of life that can't be done anywhere else," inquiries which he said led him into acting in the first place.

Part of Nimoy's time in the military was spent with the Army Special Services , putting on shows which he wrote, narrated, and emceed.
Nimoy spent more than a decade receiving only small parts in B movies and the lead in one, along with a minor TV role. While he was serving in the military the film gained a larger audience on television, and after his discharge he got steadier work playing a "heavy," where his character used street weapons like switchblades and guns, or had to threaten, hit or kick people.
He decided to be a supporting actor rather than take lead roles, an attitude he acquired from his childhood: "I'm a second child who was educated to the idea my older brother was to be given respect and not perturbed.
I was not to upstage him So my acting career was designed to be a supporting player, a character actor. To support a wife and two children he often did other work, such as delivering newspapers, working in a pet shop, and driving cabs.

Cardiac surgeon Dr. Barry Mayfield Leonard Nimoy and Dr. Edmund Hiedemann Will Geer have pioneered a major medical breakthrough that Mayfield wants to publish about immediately, but Hiedemann wants to wait and do more tests.
When Dr. Hiedemann's heart condition worsens, requiring the insertion of a heart valve, Mayfield performs the surgery using non-permanent sutures, that will kill his partner when it dissolves in his body.
Nurse Sharon Martin Anne Francis , a friend of Hiedemann, who has never trusted or liked Mayfield, uncovers a suspicious piece of suture, which she takes with her from the operating room.
Mayfield observes her doing and later kills Martin in the hospital garage parking area, staging it as an apparent mugging. He later tries to pin the crime on her ex-boyfriend, a former drug addict portrayed by Jared Martin , whom he kills as well.
This episode contains one of the rare occasions when Columbo loses or appears to lose his temper; suddenly slamming a coffee pot down onto Mayfield's desk he angrily warns him that if Hiedemann dies, the police will have his body autopsied to check what sutures were used in his operation.
As soon as the procedure is completed, police swarm the operating suite and search for the removed sutures.
Mayfield loses his composure, demanding to be allowed to leave the operating room and shoving Columbo in the process. Just as it seems that no sutures are to be found and that Mayfield is in the clear, Columbo re-enters the doctor's office and reveals that he was puzzled as to why Mayfield, always so calm and collected, would have shoved him, then realized that Mayfield used the scuffle to rid himself of the sutures.
Here, Columbo pulls the sutures from the pocket of the surgical scrubs he, Columbo himself, had worn in the operating room - "the only thing not searched".

Heidi Brühl plays Linda Robinson, who follows in her mother's footsteps in looking after Dudek. Lloyd Bochner plays Dudek's accompanying coach, Mazoor Berozski.
Columbo now sees that someone wanting to kill Dudek would merely have had to turn the grinder back on after it shut itself off. Columbo concludes that since the grinder was not turned back on, it means the would-be murderer did not know the grinder had shut itself off, which in turn means the culprit must be deaf.
