I admit it. I am an avid Columbo fan. Maybe junkie is a better word for it because if Columbo is on TV, I’m watching it even though I’ve seen every episode many, many times. But it’s easy to forget how many films and theatrical performances Peter Falk has been in. Films like: It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Princess Bride, Murder by Death, The In-Laws, Roomates, and many more. It was while working in Hartford for the Connecticut State Budget Bureau that Falk decided to quit his job, move to New York City, and focus on being an actor. His wild adventures, passion for life, and enduring sense of humor leap from the pages of his autobiography Just One More Thing. I highly recommend it. Each chapter is 2 to 6 pages. Read it while you’re waiting in line. Read it before bed. Read it during the commercials when Columbo is on TV.
