Bright comedy about a fast-talking promoter who cons a gangster into financing a movie stinker, then.promotes a Greek island as a paradise spot. The fun lets down before the end, but there's some funny dialogue. *· "SON OF RED CORSAIR," (1961) *4, 2 p.m., ® with Lex Barker and Sylvia Lopez.

Story based on fact about a Navy radioman who is trapped by the outbreak of World War II, becomes a guerrilla in the hills of Guam. Done in straight forward manner, with a good performance by Hunter, this nevertheless looks like all the other war films, although the location shooting in the Philippines is an added asset. "RUN A CROOKED MILE," (1969) **VS, 11:30 p.m., © with Louis Jourdan and Mary Tyler Moore. A muddled made-for-TV-feature, greatly enhanced by the charm of Jourdan. He plays a schoolteacher who becomes an amnesia victim, and lives the life of a wealthy playboy for a two-year period, marrying Mary Tyler Moore in the interim. However, it is not a comedy. »· "TRAPPED IN TANGIERS," (I960) ·%, 11:30 p.m., O with Edmund Purdom and Genevieve Page. American sleuth exposes a dope-smuggling ring in Tangiers. » "APPALOOSA," (1966) **, 11:30 p.m., CD with Marlon Brando and John Saxon. A pretentious Western yarn which suffers from too much talk, arty camerawork, and a stilted performance by Brando as a wronged buffalo hunter who meets with adversity at every turn. The story has Brando pitted against a Mexican bandit, played with spewing intensity by Saxon, and their many confrontations becoming tiresome long before the shoot-out at the finale. Once again Brando has squandered his prodigious talent on meretricious, material. *·'.';-.·: "THE MUMMY'S CURSE," (1945) *%, 11:30 . p.m., (B with Lon Chaney. Kharis the m u m m y is searching for his ancient Egyptian love. Trite. · "MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD," (1935) "M a.m., 13 with Claude Rains and Heather Angel. This is an adaptation of Charles Dickens' final -- and uncompleted -novel. Concerns a choirmaster who leads a double life, giving choir lessons by day, smoking opium by night. Nicely played by Rains and moderately interesting. Falk, Columbo often alike By Jerry Buck . BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Peter Falk was a pool playing fool. But he swore off and retired his pool cue about five years ago. But books on billiards still line the den walls of his $200,000 Tudor mansion in Beverly Hills, just off Sunset Boulevard. It looks like one of the rich places he is going to in "Columbo," shambling in wearing a wrinkled raincoat and dribbling cigar ashes on the carpet. Falk, 44, ordered a glass of soda at a restaurant near the home and considered himself and Columbo. "In my personal life I'm not the best dressed guy," he said. "But I don't have Columbo's insatiable curiosity. "I share with him a certain obsessiveness. He doesn't quit. I don't quit either. "I think he's a happy fellow. I think so am 1.1 think I probably have a bigger ego than he does. He gets his satisfaction out of doing his job. He knows who he is and he has no need for superficial recognition." Falk's first series, "The Trials of O'Brien," ran for 22 episodes in 1965-66. "Columbo is a man of few words," he said. "O'Brien was a man of a few thousand words. Columbo defers to others, O'Brien was brash. "Columbo" was a change of pace for me. It's the first time I had an opportunity to play someone who was as polite as him. He's a quiet man, extremely considerate of others. · T F ; alk-said .that-next season '.---- -.^. .A*.-"/. '..·?'.. ',?,)'* he will make only six "Columbo" episodes instead of eight. "The fewer you make the better they are," he explained. "And it gives me more time to make movies." Throughout much of his career, Falk played characters who came on strong. In "Luv" he was a philandering husband who got Jack Lemmon to take his wife off his hands. Two gangster roles, "Murder Inc." In 1961 and "A Pocketful of Miracles" in 1962, won him Oscar nominations. At his home his two Em- mys are stuck on a bottom shelf of a bookcase. He won the first in 1962 as the feisty truck driver in "The Price of Tomatoes" on "The Dick Powell Show".and his second in 1972 for "Columbo." Falk, born in New York City and raised in Ossining, N.Y., had acted much of his life, but resisted turning professional until 1955 when he was 26. He was more interested in sports in school, lettering in track, baseball and basketball. "The theater wasn't on my mind," he recalled. "In high school I never did anything until the senior play. Another student got sick and I took his place as a detective. "Come to think of it, he was a lot like Columbo. A shambling guy. "In college I went to the dramatics workshop at the New School because I thought it was a delightful way to get credits.. They of- fered me a scholarship to be a full-time acting student, but I turned down. I had no intention of becoming an actor. "Acting just didn't seem masculine. I couldn't conceive of myself being an actor. I couldn't tell my friends on the street corners of New York I was going to be an actor. They'd look at me funny.
