He appeared in numerous films and television guest roles, and has been nominated for an Academy Award twice (for 1960'sMurder, Inc. and 1961's Pocketful of Miracles), and won the Emmy Award on five occasions (three for Columbo) and the Golden Globe award once. Director William Friedkin, when discussing Falk's role in his 1978 film The Brink's Job said that "Peter has a great range from comedy to drama. He could break your heart or he could make you laugh."[1]:263
As the star of the TV series Columbo, which initially aired from 1971 to 1978, he was "everyone's favorite rumpled television detective", writes historian David Fantle. Describing his role, Variety columnist Howard Prouty writes, "The joy of all this is watching Columbo dissemble the fiendishly clever cover stories of the loathsome rats who consider themselves his better."[2]
