Peter Falk is one of those actors that most people would associate with the one iconic role, that of the dishevelled TV detective. However Falk had a long and distinguished career outside of the small screen and graced many a big screen movie.
Columbo though was brilliant - the show was rotated as part of a series called, The Mystery Movie when I was a kid. Each week we'd get a different show - McCloud, Macmillan and Wife, Columbo and a few others I can't quite recall. Ahh those were the days.
Peter Falk, veteran actor who is best remembered for winning four Emmy Awards, passed away at his Beverly Hills home on Thursday. He was 83, and the cause of the death is not established yet but he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, according to a statement released by family friend Larry Larson.
