Description

For millions of viewers, Peter Falk is Columbo, the eccentric yet shrewd upholder of the law in a wrinkled trench coat, who confounds the powerful in their luxurious villas. Who is the man behind the character? This entertaining documentary looks at the life, career and star image of Falk, from his growing up in a Bronx Jewish family to his collaborations with John Cassavetes and his long-running success as Columbo, culminating with his role as the ex-angel in Wim Wenders’s Wings of Desire. Featuring many clips from his film and TV roles and interviews with Columbo co-creator William Link, producer Julian Schlossberg, eminent film scholar Annette Insdorf and many others.
