    Book details


Peter Falk came to prominence as an actor in 1956 in the highly successful off-Broadway revival of The Iceman Cometh with Jason Robards. Although he worked continuously for the next three years, bouncing from one off-Broadway theatre to the next, a theatrical agent advised him not to expect much work in motion pictures because of his glass eye. Later, a talent scout for Columbia Pictures described Falk as a second John Garfield, but Harry Cohn, the head of Columbia Pictures, unfortunately disagreed: 'For the same price, I can get an actor with two eyes.'

But in 1958, Twentieth Century Fox came to New York to make a movie - Murder Inc - and Falk landed a juicy role for which he received rave reviews and, incredibly, was nominated for an Academy Award. He was then nominated again for his second film, Pocketful of Miracles starring Bette Davis.
Falk went on to become a favourite among filmgoers, yet it was through television that he reached his widest audience as Lt. Columbo, winning four Emmys for the role. Interestingly, Columbo's raincoat came out of Falk's bedroom closet. He bought it years before he became an actor. He's been quoted as saying, 'I wanted to wear something people would remember. Bottom line, it's the world's most famous raincoat.'

Just One More Thing is pure Peter Falk, and reads as if he were sitting next to you, chuckling as he recalls his remarkable past.

The reluctant actor who was nominated for two Oscars and who immortalised Lieutenant Columbo around the world shares his hilarious and often touching stories - in his own inimitable voice.

    Bought for my husband as xmas pressie. He enjoyed the book but would have liked the book to have been a better insight into the man himself.

    Not a conventional autobiography but a collection of funny stories from Falk's life. Not a long book however.

    If ever a book's style mirrored that of it's author, then this would be a prime example. It's flimsy and unfocused but that's one of its main selling points. About as far from a traditional biography as you can get, it's essentially a series of anecdotes that help paint a picture of the man himself as if being told about him by a friend. It's honest and funny without really being insightful, but it's a lovely stress free read about a really good man and I'd happily recommend it.

    interesting, and excellent service

    I was sad when Peter Falk passed away, I have been a fan of Columbo since I was a kid. This book is fantastic, certainly different from most autobiographies. It reads as a series of short stories almost, and doesn't focus on drivel from people's personal lives. It's entertaining and informative. I would recommend it.
