Re: Peter Falk (Lt. Columbo) Dead

Columbo had that great way of letting perps think they were playing him when he was really playing them, often stopping as he was leaving an interview to ask: "Oh. One more thing..." and nailing someone with what would turn out 2B a very revealing question. BTW, the famous raincoat wasn't part of a costume, Peter Falk already owned it when he got the role. RIP, Lieutenant.

Re: Peter Falk (Lt. Columbo) Dead

I hit it back in the 70s. I was at the Emmys, I was up for TV movie of the week Best Actress for playing a biracial lesbian doctor living in the ghetto helping the poor and we hooked up at the afterparty when I was drowning my sorrows in gin after losing to Christie McNichol for some dumb crap TV movie she did about teen pregnancy. Colombo was pretty good, we got it on for about a month. I asked him to show me his glass eye and he got really offended and the affair ended.

This was back in the 70s, I wanted to wear an afro wig to complete my look for the movie, but the director wouldn't let me. I don't think people bought the biracial bit with flaming red hair, and it cost me the Emmy in my opinion.
