    He was wonderful in "Griffin and Phoenix"; a movie for TV, with Jill Clayburgh.
    I'll miss him,
    RIP

    I always liked his character on Columbo - just the right mix of smart and odd. Very much like "Monk." I saw a few of his other roles and they were equally good, but Columbo really was multi-dimensional, thanks to Falk's acting. He's been ill for some time, which is sad.

    RIP

    I went looking at IMDb to see if I could remember a couple of my favorite movies of his -- and there were so many more than I even remembered!

    Murder by Death
    The Cheap Detective
    The In-Laws
    Robin and the 7 Hoods
    Pocketful of Miracles
    Roommates

    And of course The Princess Bride. He was wonderful in all of them.

    Oh no, that is sad. So many great performances, it's hard to pick one ... though if I had to pick, it would probably be The Princess Bride.

    RIP, Peter

    Wow, I loved him in Columbo and the Princess Bride but he is also so funny as Max in one of my favorite movies of all time, The Great Race.

    I'll never forget the story he told when he subbed for Regis years ago about having a glass eye when he was little. He was in Little League, had stolen 2nd Base, but had been called out by the Ump. The Manager came out to try and debate the call and in the course of the arguement, the Ump was told by the Manager that he was blind and needed new eyes. Peter said he reached up, took his glass eye out and handed it to the Umpire telling him, "Here you go!!"

    :D

    Another Columbo fan here and he was wonderful in The Princess Bride too. The Greats really are leaving us in greater numbers, aren't they. :(

    God Speed Sir and Thanks for the Memories. :(

    TCM has a tribute up on their website. I hope they announce a movie marathon in his honor soon.
