Three times before I have scanned and posted here TV Guide articles about the renowned American crime drama Columbo and its star, Peter Falk. But since Falk’s death on Thursday, I’ve dug out from my files two more pieces from the same magazine that haven’t yet been offered on this page. (Columbo’s viewer popularity made it a frequent attraction in TV Guide during the series’ long run.) For your entertainment and edification, I shall post both of those articles this weekend.
The first piece, embedded below, appeared in the May 5, 1973, edition. It looks back fondly at Falk’s boyhood years spent in Ossining, New York, a village in Westchester County, north of New York City.
