    Peter Falk R. I. P.

    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.

    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.

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