Columbo and C Auguste Dupin 2 different characters are to solve crimes They both have many similar qualities as well as a couple of minor differences In the end they are both great crime solvers In this report I will discuss the physical background as well as compare their ways to solve crimes Dupin a poor Frenchman comes from a very rich family Books are his sole luxury and he gets them easily in Paris He has very good analytical and observing skills Even when hes not on the job trying to solve a crime he observes and remarks very trifle details Columbo on the other hand is an identified detective Hes a man full of life that is about in his 30s He has curly brown hair is a little shorter than most characters in the movie and wears the same suit all through the movie gray suit black tie white blouse boots and a beige rain coat Columbo always seems pretty happy goes around complimenting everybody and likes to be where the action is At many moments in the movie I found that he seemed stressful by the way he was smoking cigars all the time stuttered twitched and was clumsy Both men have different ways of gathering clues and evidence interpreting them and getting the guilty to confess their crime Dupin gathers information analyses and makes his hypotheses in silent He doesnt share his thoughts up until the guilty confesses He also seems to keep his options opened he is open to any explanation until he knows exactly what happened On the other hand Columbo knows right away who committed the crime but seems unable to prove so He asks questions to everybody he meets shares his thoughts feeling ideas and hypotheses out loud Instead of honestly making the guilty confess he traps them He makes them feel guilty for what they did telling them he knows what the guilty have done
