THE IN-LAWS MOVIE CAST: PETER FALK and ALAN ARKIN
Shown together in color still from the classic comedy
Photograph signed: "Peter/Falk", "Alan Arkin". Color, 10x8. PETER FALK (1927-2011) lost an eye at the age of three, resulting in the odd, squinting gaze which later became his trademark. Originally a character actor in a film career spanning over 40 years, Falk reached stardom as detective lieutenant Columbo, which aired regularly from 1971 to 1978. In nearly every episode, the audience saw a very shrewd criminal commit an apparently perfect crime in the opening scenes. The only mystery was how Falk's Columbo, a slovenly detective pretending to be slow-witted, would win a duel of wits with the overconfident culprit and crack the case. He won two Emmys for his television work and earned two Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominations (Murder Inc., 1961 and Pocketful of Miracles, 1962). Sadly, Falk slipped into dementia after dental surgery in 2007, and cannot now even remember his Columbo character. ALAN ARKIN (b. 1934) made his Oscar-nominated Hollywood debut as a Russian naval officer in the gentle but hilarious sleeper The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! (1966). The following year, he demonstrated his versatility by offering a chilling portrayal of a villain in Wait Until Dark. Further acclaim greeted the actor in 1968 when received his second Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a deaf-mute in The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. He continued riding high in 1970, when he played Yossarian in Mike Nichols' serio-comic adaptation of Joseph Heller's Catch-22. Five years later, he earned a second New York Film Critics Circle award for his work in Hearts of the West. His career enjoyed a second wind in the 1990s, with the actor appearing in substantial roles in a number of films. Some of the highlights included Edward Scissorhands (1990), Glengarry Glen Ross (1992) and Grosse Pointe Blank (1997). Nearly four decades after his first Oscar, he scored another as Best Supporting Actor in Little Miss Sunshine (2007). He is the father of actors Adam and Matthew Arkin. Falk and Arkin wanted to make a movie together. The result of this inspired pairing was The In-Laws, a manic comedy starring Arkin as a dentist drawn into a crazy spy caper by ex-CIA agent Falk. Fine condition.
