I would like to thank everyone on this site for supporting the show , Columbo and I can say that I am really happy that I got to play the lead role for all these years. I am glad I have such a great audience that discusses the scenes on this wonderful website. Thank you very much, it touches me greatly.
Was that you Headache? What are you up to?
Ok....who was that?!?!?!?!?!? I am getting scared!!!!
Do you think it was Headache, Paul?!?!?!?!?!?! I know darn well it wasn't Peter Falk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But could you just imagine if it was?!?!?!?
(did i use enough exclamtion points and question marks in this post!?!?!?!?!??!?!??!?)
Ladies and gentlemen, I am Peter Falk, and I have been watching this website for the past week and finally decided to post. Guys, you are fantastic fans of mine and I am greatful for this. Thank you very much, I would like to contribute to future posts when you discuss Columbo.
I don't think Peter Falk would misspell "grateful."
I feel like I've stumbled into The Twilight Zone forum.
ok....Lt. Columbo...aka..Peter Falk....what was John Cassavetes middle name? What was the name of his last dog? What are his children's names? What happened to him and Benny Gazzara when they were in the limo during the filming of Chinese Bookie?
If you are truly Peter, then I apologize...but I am having my doubts.....the fact that I use Cassavetes as a moniker, and you didn't mention it makes me feel a bit suspect that you are truly the one and only Peter........can you answer my questions?......if you can...well maybe you are Peter.....and if you are...........oh hell...I will faint...
....and E, I think maybe the real Peter would misspell grateful.....it just sort of seems to fit!
by the way...I have Forgotten Lady playing in the next room...my husband and his mother wanted to see it and the 2 of them are sleeping now!!!!!!!!!!!!
What's a Columbo fan to do??? I am listening to it....it is my second favourite Columbo.......guess what is my first???????
It would be a great thrill if you were really Peter Falk. Maybe you can deliver my DvD's of Columbo The Complete Third Season to me in Seattle. If you are really Peter Falk , God Bless you , you have entertained me a lot. I am Victoria from the William Shatner "Columbo" , Butterfly In Shades of Grey.I hope you will make a new Columbo film sometime soon. Maybe you can give us a rundown on when that is going to happen. I really hope you make another "Columbo "film sometime soon. You are a great talent Peter Falk and I hope I will get to meet you in person one day. Maybe you can tell us about the next "Columbo" film. God Bless you Peter Falk.
Ok.....this is getting bizarre!
Victoria never posts unless she is talking about a certain episode or she wants to expound on all the new Peter Falk films that are up and coming......(You are a Darling, Victoria!!)...and here she is, actually making a post about something else...........
If you are not Peter...(which I suspect is the truth)...don't do that to her....she is too sweet of a person................
It's very disrespectful to Peter as I know Peter can spell and use grammar correctly unlike the plonker that sent the hoax. I'm all for fun but this is sad.
Cassa and others: I will very honestly say that 'Lieutenant Columbo' is not me. I wouldn't do that sort of thing - pretend to be the main man himself. So, that said...
Mr. Peter Falk aka 'Lientenant Columbo, it is truly an honor to have you post here on this website! Join in on the discussions and let us all know when were goofing up on some sort of Columbo info that you know the true story behind!
Oh, and one more thing... You are one terrific actor! Keep up the great job!
Oh, and I probably shouldn't mention it, but... I have this script I've recently written in which Columbo goes after a murderous aut... Well, I'm sure you've had enough people trying to get you to read their scripts and get them jobs. I'll go easy on you. But it is nice of you to read our posts and post yours as well!
Headache...I never really thought it was you...blame that on Paul!!!
But you don't really think it was him..do you? Because if it really was I was rather disrespectful to him.....asking all those questions about JC.....
And hey!! there you go again about that "murderous aut..."
you have said that before and I asked you about it but you never told me what you meant......Move away from the cave...and stop being so mysterious!!!! What the heck do you mean?????????????????
Sorry Headache, I didn't actually think it was you. It was just that something bizarre is obviously happening, and Headache usually has something to do with bizarre things. And quite right cassa, if this isn't the real Peter (and if it is, I will walk naked down my street), then it is quite cruel to get Victoria excited that way. By the way, I always thought Victoria was her real name. But then she mentioned the character from butterlfy in shades of grey...so Victoria isn't your real name??
Ok...Paul....so when are you going to be walking down the street naked???....I need to be there and I need to bring my video camera!!!!!!!! Just let me know the date and time!!!
Sorry that I got so much attention fellas, even though I might not deserve it. But I enjoyed being the center of discussion. I don't know how much longer Columbo will last but I am planning to air a movie that will actually reveal my name, it might not air for the next few years so you will have to wait. Btw, it is not Frank. It is nice reading your posts.
Oh....if you really are him...oh dear...I have the Life magazine of Husbands framed on my living room wall....I feel like such an idiot because if you are not Peter then I am wasting a lot of emotion here. And if you are really Peter...well....I am at a loss for words...and cassa is not usually at a loss for words!!
Ok..fellow Columboites here she goes again!!
As a young girl I fell in love with you and John and Benny. You guys were my solace.
Well..I won't go on because I fear I am making a fool of myself...because I think you are not really..........well...you know.....whatever.........
just tell me John's middle name..........
Everybody relax. It's not him. This happens here every year or two.
For one thing, Peter is not internet-savvy -- he's a bit like Columbo that way. He has only seen email once that I know of, when somebody set up his account and showed it to him, and he does not like to be around computer monitors.
Peter's a fan of this site, because he heard about it then asked for a hard-copy -- which webmaster Steve sent to him, bound up like a book. Last I heard, he had it on his office coffee-table for visitors to flip through. But he doesn't surf the net.
Besides, I happen to know who it is. And it's not Headache (and it's not me). I won't completely spoil his/her jollies by outing him/her, but, trust me on this, guys. Fun is fun, but I hate to see anybody embarrass themselves.
Thank you very much Ted.
I THINK THE TRICK PLAYED ON US WAS DOWNRIGHT SHAMEFUL.
ALL OF US IN THIS FORUM ARE HERE FOR THE SAME REASON. TO TALK ABOUT OUR FAVORITE DETECTIVE COLUMBO PLAYED OF COURSE BY PETER FALK. IT WOULD OF BEEN GREAT IF PETER FALK REALLY POSTED ON THIS MESSAGE BOARD.
I HAVE A QUESTION FOR TED. TED IF I CAN REMEMBER CORRECTLY DIDN'T JOHNNY CASH AND THE MAN WHO PLAYED IN THE PRISONER SERIES AND STARRED IN AGENDA FOR MURDER, BY DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT AND IDENTITY CRISIS
Fellas, I love listening to this. I especially love the young detective minds evident in Ted, and Casavettes in that they approach everything from a very detective like approach, not to say that you have correctly solved this case. Yes, I do have a copy of the book on my desk that Steve send me but I have visited my email account so many times, and I have watched over this site for a while to see when it was appropriate to write, I think I could not handle keeping quite anymore. I know I don't sound like myself but, maybe its my old age. Back once again, I love this forum and thank all who contribute in making it a success. Hope to see your future posts.
You didn't even spell Cassavetes right.........
"Lieutenant", I appreciate your kind words about the site, and I understand your efforts to have some fun. But the jig is up, sir. I know exactly who you are, or at least what you have used as your real name.
One of your initials is "M". Do I have to tell you another initial?
I am Peter Falk, I understand why you do not believe me. I am not upset at that, so it is quite fine that you are trying to solve the mystery that doesnt exist.
Another of your initials is "K".
Kind of sad isn't it Ted?
Aw, Cass', he's not a bad guy -- probably a good fan, and he's polite to you and our fellow guests, which is all I ask. He just doesn't know when to quit.
I gotcha, Ted.
Mr Ted and Mr Caveouts, I am just wondering, how did you come up with the fact that my initials are M and K, where do you see that? It does not appear anywhere on the forum? Naturally, as a detective I am very interested in finding out.
Peter Falk "Lieutenant Columbo"
I hope there doesn't turn out to be an "E" in your initials!
I am glad that the 2 of you guys and everyone else has been trying to solve this elusive mystery but unlike all the episodes I played in, this episode has a simpler solution then you would think, I am lieutenant Columbo, not someone just visiting this forum. But I am proud that you don't let your old man down and keep this a Columbo like detective, just don't forget to say, Just One more thing.
Ted, I am really interested in how you used deductive logic to figure out my initials? I am not MK, I am Peter Falk, answer me please.
Your whole name also has a "Z" in it.
Some of you undoubtedly have figured out how I know this, but I prefer that we just leave it at that here, without publishing an explanation. How often do I get to out-deduce Lieutenant Columbo?
You have me very intrigued Ted. But I'll be good and not ask you any questions.
I am completly confused. I don't know what has happened. Did the main man himself wrote this message or someone else pertaining to be Lt. Columbo. If it was him why didn't he go into greater details about his realtionship with cassevetes and the rest of the show. This just might just end in a case that will never be solved. But someday hopefully we might find out the whole story. If Ted said it is Colujmbo we just have to accept it. He did get to meet the main man one the view.
And if Ted is right, which of course he is (Peter Falk would know the difference between quiet and quite), that means I don't have to walk down the street naked. Actually, with the heat here in Manchester right now, I am tempted to do it anyway
Aw shucks!!!! I guess I will put my video camera back in storage!!!
No..Damian...Ted was just joking....he knows it is not Peter Falk. And he knows who it is...a past/present poster here on the forum.
Look it is all very confusing...but the only thing I am certain about is that it isn't me!!
Guys, I am not a past poster, if you think that I am, show me where am I on the forum posting? I am pure old lieutenant Columbo.
WOW! This is awesome.
Well I for one believe it's you Peter
I don't know if you remember me, my name is Mark Dinning, we met on the set of 'The Thing About My Folks.' My uncle Patrick was working security. If you don't remember me you'll remember uncle pat. No-one forgets him with that crazy tattoo of E.T on his neck
Anyway we chatted for about 40mins, You Me and Paul Reiser. You were even kind enough to sign a photo for me
One of the things we talked about was the internet and how you found it confusing at first but were slowly getting the hang of it. Thats why I know it must be you. You said that one day if you were feeling brave enough you'd post something on this website.
I'm glad your internet skills are growing and maybe in the future I'll have the chance to meet with you again. That was a great day. All the best Peter.
Hi, Mark. Yes, I still remember you. It was a great talk, thank you for remaining my fan to this day, I will not forget it. Pass on my gratitude and remarks to your uncle. One mystery I am interested in solving in real life is why Ted thinks my initials are MK, I can't figure it out, where does he come up with that?
You are really hysterical....You won't give up will you? And just by me posting here I am probably giving you more to chew on.
Let it go my friend...in the infamous words of Cat Stevens..."just relax...take it easy...you're still young...that's your fault...there's so much you have to know"....and post something as your real self...it will make you feel so much better.
(and by the way, I am not a guy....so stop calling me Mr. Caveouts )
LOL, so u r a women? OMG, I am loosing my Columboness. Just wandering Ms. Caveouts, why do u think I am young, maybe I am very old? How do you know my initials, Ted? (Claim you know them, not for real of course).
Peter Falk (The Real guy)
Ok..let me have some fun.........I am not a "women" as you said...I am a woman..simply said.
now do what I said, and post like you would as your real self....you must have been on here before...come on...just be nice...we all try to be that way here...this is not like other forums or boards...we are polite and respectful here....please just try and do the same...............and when I say this, I say it with respect towards you and with a kind voice.
Well Mr Falk, yeah right! Just for you to know that the above post from Mark Dinning was in fact.. me
I made it all up. How can you remember a talk that never happened to someone who doesn't exist. There is no uncle patrick with an E.T tattoo
Now everyone can see your a fake so why don't use just start using your real name and join in with the discussions. We won't hold this little scam against you if you quit now.
Heres a suggestion for everyone else. Don't reply to this guys posts, you'll just add fuel to his fire. He'll soon get bored when people stop humouring him.
Your scam is exposed, peace be with you.
Genius Darth...Well done! Headache himself would have been proud of that!
OH MY!! WELSHDRAGON!!! I can only echo Paul and say GENIUS!!! And Headache would indeed be proud!!
It was to good to be true but it would of been great if it was truly Peter Falk aks Lt. Columbo
Headache wasn't taken in for a moment. NOT A MOMENT!
