Celebrities - Peter Falk

Peter Michael Falk (September 16, 1927 - June 23, 2011) was an American actor, best known for his role as Lieutenant Columbo in the television series Columbo. He appeared in numerous films and television guest roles and was nominated for an Academy Award twice (for 1960's Murder, Inc. and 1961's Pocketful of Miracles), and won the Emmy Award on five occasions (four for Columbo) and the Golden Globe award once. Director William Friedkin, when discussing Falk's role in his 1978 film The Brink's Job said that "Peter has a great range from comedy to drama. He could break your heart or he could make you laugh."[1] In 1968 he starred with Gene Barry in a ninety - minute TV pilot about a highly-skilled, laid-back detective. Columbo eventually became part of an anthology series titled, The NBC Mystery Movie, along with McCloud and McMillan And Wife. The detective series stayed on NBC from 1971-1978, took a respite, and returned occasionally on ABC from 1989-2003. He was "everyone's favorite rumpled television detective", writes historian David Fantle. Describing his role, Variety columnist Howard Prouty writes, "The joy of all this is watching Columbo dissemble the fiendishly clever cover stories of the loathsome rats who consider themselves his better."[2]

1 I don't know why but for whatever reason, I've always liked characters that are awkward and socially inept, however they're the smartest person in the room: Monk, House, Columbo, etc. I very much enjoyed Columbo, back in the day. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 15, 2013, 12:04 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 I agree, lbloom. Although Suzanne Pleshette told a story in which she claimed he pulled some diva stunts during her guest spot on "Columbo" that were so unpleasant to all around that that she said resulted in her not speaking to her friend from adolesence for a year thereafter. However; she concluded 'but how can you stay mad at Peter Falk?'. How, indeed! RIP, Columbo! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 9, 2011, 9:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
