He will remain immortal as the scruffy, bumbling Lieutenant Columbo in the detective series, but also as a Hollywood movie actor with two Academy Award nominations, five Emmys and a Golden Globe. Peter Michael Falk, it turns out, was a chess aficionado who took lessons and visited chess tournaments.

One of my favorite Columbo episodes is the one where he has to take on a murderous chess grandmaster. I wish someone would upload that episode to the internet.
