Just loved that guy in anything he was in (see all above listed shows).

The Academy had better do him justice on Sunday at the Oscars during their annual "Tribute to people who passed on this year" thingy.

I have to put MURDER BY DEATH above THE CHEAP DETECTIVE, but both
are on a very, very high shelf.

Reading about Columbo on Wikipedia, I came to this bummer of a paragraph:

A few years prior to his death, Peter Falk had expressed interest in returning to the role, announcing in 2007 that he had chosen a script for one last Columbo episode, Columbo: Hear No Evil. The script was renamed Columbo's Last Case. ABC, the network that aired the more recent Columbo series (beginning in 1989), declined the project. In response, producers for the series announced that they were attempting to shop the project to foreign production companies. However, Falk's involvement in the project was put into doubt after he was diagnosed with dementia in late 2007, following a dental procedure. During a 2009 court trial over Falk's care, Dr Stephen Read stated that the actor's condition had deteriorated so badly that Falk could no longer remember playing a character named Columbo, nor could he identify who Columbo was.

A & E had a run when I was in college where they would faithfully show all of the Columbo movies. My favorite Columbo TV movie was the one where William Shatner played the murderer. Talk about two guys hamming it up! The best part is at the end, when Columbo confronts him and Shatner sheepishly confesses, "YES...I killed her. And...up until now... I was glad I killed her."

But the first Columbo movie was the best because, although he still had the bumbling routine going on, when he finally gets his hooks into someone, he's pretty aggressive and vicious (certainly compared to the milder later version).

I believe both Shatner & Nimoy played bad guys twice each on Columbo (the hour long ones. In the one you saw did Shatner have a moustache clipped straight across halfway down his upper lip. I couldn't stop staring at that weirdness.

No love for 'Pocket Full of Miracles'?

The original In-Laws is a classic.

Hehe. I don't think this was the mustache one. I like to think I would remember that. In this one he played a cheesy actor (what range!) that murders his producer or something.
 
2012-02-22 09:38:26 AM
Been watching the old Columbo re-runs. They're a lot better than I remembered.

Interesting guy: Link (new window)

I was going to say I hoped he insisted on being buried in the trademark trench coat, but apparently it didn't survive.

/thought he had an odd stare...
 
2012-02-22 09:40:08 AM
"Columbo" is streaming on Netflix right now, btw. Go for the awesome, incredible acting of Peter Falk, stay for all of the guest star murderers (including Leonard Nimoy! and Anne Bancroft!) and that old POS convertible.

At 3 he had one eye removed because of cancer. "When something like that happens early," he said in a 1963 Associated Press interview, "you learn to live with it. It became the joke of the neighborhood. If the umpire ruled me out on a bad call, I'd take the fake eye out and hand it to him."

what a cool thing to do

As you wish, Mr. Falk.

Will the students receive a certificate suitable for framing? Will the music students learn to play Etude in Black or a Requiem for a Falling Star?

In the moustache episode he played a radio DJ. I actually gave some thought to growing a moustache just so I could clip it like that. Being unemployed I could get away with it lol.

The two episodes of Columbo that Shatner was in were Fade into Murder (1976) (new window) and Butterfly in Shades of Grey (1994) (new window).
The one that Leonard Nimoy was in was A Stitch in Crime (1973)

Just once I would have loved an episode where he suspected someone and tied them to a chair and beat the crap out of them until they confessed. Just once...

Uck! I refuse to even believe the Meg Ryan/Nicholas Cage thing was any sort of Wings of Desire remake. Even more insulting to the original than The Wicker Man.
