Old TV Show ..Colombo

My wife and I are big fans of the Coulomb TV series of the '70's to the 2000's. We watch the reruns on My TV. Sunday evenings.
I vaguely remember Peter Falk getting his TV debut or start on a Playhouse 90 or similar show in a title roll called the Price Of Tomatoes.

It was a one shot episode of he being a truck driver in a contest or competitive situation to deliver a load of tomatoes to market before another driver did and he got side tracked to help some people, That's all I can remember. Can anyone verify my memory and if I'm correct is it possible this film might still exist?

Edit...A little Googling does in fact verify my memory. It was the Dick Powell Theater.

He won an Emmy for The Price of Tomatoes, a drama carried in 1962 on The Dick Powell Show.

I never did and still don't watch much television, so I probably don't have as much to compare against as some, but Colombo would be my choice of all time favorites.

I was under the impression that this particular show shot him into stardom, but as I found out he was already nominated for several awards prior to this show.

I don't know that I recall Peter Falk in anything other than Columbo but then I don't watch a lot of TV. I used to watch that show when it was new but don't think I've ever watched any of the reruns.
