Peter Falk on the Leonard Lopate Show in 2006

Peter Falk became a household name as the rumpled television star of “Columbo,” with a cigar dangling from his mouth, but he also worked with John Cassavetes over his long career. He died recently at the age of 83. He spoke with Leonard back in October of 2006 about why he was turned down for a job with the CIA, his life on and off the screen, and the tumor that caused him to lose his right eye when he was only three years old. Listen to that interview, above.
