Peter Falk lost his right eye as a child due to a tumor. In 1945 he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and memorized the eye chart so that he could pass the physical. The examiner became suspicious since his right eye did not move. The Marines would not let him join. So he became a cook in the Merchant Marine.
