Peter Falk

by Tony Dayoub

"I've always been sloppy, all my life. I never could keep myself together. And I am, in person, a bit misty. I can't keep an umbrella more than 3 days. That was when I used to live in New York. I'd lose it. I'd lose everything. And frequently walk into walls. So I understood that quality. And I am a slow thinker. And I am attracted to ambiguity. I'm not somebody that has black and white answers to everything. And that kind of fits in with Columbo."
-Peter Falk on whether he identified with his famous TV detective, on Fresh Air, 1995.
