RIP Mr. Falk.

He was iconic - and there were a lot of people who came along after him who tried to capture what he mastered without success.

Me too! And The Princess Bride is one of my ultimate all time favorite movies.
I loved his story about his fake eye!
Ha!
I think he would have been a great person to know. He'll be missed.

I watched many reruns even though I knew whodunit. A brilliant show.

Cube - Those were the good ole days when television was watchable.

And Peter Falk was one of the great tv actors.

Best detective ever named after a large city in South Asia. Bar none!

I loved Peter Falk as a kid

LL: Columbo was a male Mrs. Marple. He never yelled, he never drew his gun and there were no car chases, but he always caught the killer. I loved it.

Silly rabbit: I liked the Princess Bride too. Is the fake eye story you're referencing the one where he pulled it out during a ball game and told the umpire that he needed it more than he did?

cube said...

Jan: I agree. Even now if I run across an episode of Columbo, I'll watch it. If I had any input into a network, I'd run a Columbo marathon right about now.

Sue: So true.

dmarks: lol. Give or take a vowel.

cube said...

Chuck: I still love him.

sad, isn't it. He was terrific... the first streaker :-)

Z: I'm not sure I follow... the first streaker?

His best performances were probably in Cassavetes' "Woman Under the Influence" and Wim Wenders' "Wings of Desire".

He was just a great no nonsense actor.
