Peter plays himself--or a version of himself--in the Wim Wenders classic Wings of Desire. I can't find a good segment from the movie on youtube, but this music video--with Peter Falk's voice-over--is a fitting tribute:

I cried yesterday at this news. He was a personal favorite and my family has recently been watching a lot of Columbo after I turned my daughter and now my son on to the wonders of the show.

If you have never seen the movie A Woman Under the Influence, you owe it to yourself to strap in for a brutally raw emotional ride. Directed by his friend, the great John Cassavetes, Falk has simply never been better; the full powers of his talent are on full display, and John's wife, Gena Rowlands, gives what is for me one of the greatest performances captured on film.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJcZFFh3fUU

Not sure why I can't get the YouTube link to work properly, but it's worth your time to view this clip.

R.I.P. Peter. I'm sure you and John are enjoying some fun and intense improv in the hereafter...

It's a MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD the movie
I know that his role in this was more of akin with being some extended cameo as a "Taxi Driver", but he's THERE none the less, and giving a GREAT 'account' for himself.
cool
I couldn't find a 'clip' with him in that about this, except where there are the TAXIS.

My favourite episode of Columbo was the one with Johnny Cash as the suspect. The final scene between the two of them was, for me, a very special thing.



Peter Falk's passing is a truly sad thing, though the body of work he leaves behind is something anyone could be proud of.

A Pocketful of Miracles

A little gem of a movie, directed by Frank Capra. Story by Damon Runyon - think Guys and Dolls, but not a musical. Falk plays the right-hand man of good-hearted gangster Glenn Ford. (This is not the best scene of the movie, but one that I could find with him in it.)

In "Wings of Desire" (1987), Peter Falk plays the actor Peter Falk, who's aware of an angel's presence.



And even in this movie, a reference to Columbo was unavoidable laugh



Translation of the last part:
- Hey, is this Columbo?
- No, I don't believe that.
- He hasn't got a shabby coat.
- Yeah true...
