The Columbo character wasn't based on a real cop - he was based on the
ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, who often won arguments by playing the
fool. In the same way, Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk) tricked murderers into
divulging proof of their own guilt,,, "Oh, one more thing..."
Richard Levinson and William Link, who created the character, took the
character;s name from Rocky Marciano's corner man, altis Columbo.
