Peter Falk has died, age 83.
Best known of course as TV's "Columbo," I also think of him in "The Great Race," as Jack Lemmon repeatedly told him to "push the button, Max," usually with resulting ill effects.
R.I.P.

I loved his Columbo characterization so much that I had trouble accepting him in other roles. That was my fault, though. R.I.P.

This is how I first knew him, Columbo reruns came latter. Either way he was great fun to watch.

I use to try to stay up late and watch Colombo reruns after the late news on the CBS station.

Here's a story on Jerry Lewis. Looks like he is too ill to perform:

I liked Colombo but my favorite role of his was Sam Diamond in Murder by Death.

Sam Diamond: Shut up, all of ya's. Nobody move!

Dick Charleston: What is it?

Sam Diamond: I have to go to the can again. I don't wanna miss nothin.

:D

He wasn't the star, but my favorite movie he was in was The Great Race with Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon

Along with Annette Funicello, they formulated my ideal of a woman.

I used to watch Columbo when it came on NBC as the Muder Mystery Theatre. It shared the spotlight with McMillan and Wife and McLeod,IIRC. Falk was great in that role. He was nominated for an Oscar in his first two movies,Muder, Inc. and Pocket Full of Miracles. That's pretty amazing when you think about it.
About a month ago I bought his autobiography on the bargain book bin at Big Lots. I will have to read it next. R.I.P. Peter Falk Thanks for all the great entertainment.

I liked this movie when I was younger, haven't seen it in quite a while.

Sam Diamond: The last time that I trusted a dame was in Paris in 1940. She said she was going out to get a bottle of wine. Two hours later, the Germans marched into France.
