always enjoyed watching columbo,the way he would work out the killer within minutes then spend the rest of the programme annoying the crap out of them until they either made a mistake or admitted it.




oh one more thing :wink: there was some huge stars of the time on those programmes.

He was great in Columbo and as the grandfather in The Princess Bride.

Also loved him in that female wrestling film " california dolls" ...never got on with columbo though as finding out the murderer at the start of the program seemed stupid,

i don't often get involved with these celebrity RIP threads but here is a man who brought so much fantastic entertainment with his immense talent and unique style. we really lost someone here and it needs acknowledging

I read about him today in the paper and whilst I sad to see him gone, Im happy he isnt suffering anymore.
The noted the sad fact that whilst he will be best remembered as Columbo he wasnt able to remember it himself.

... and another thing! RIP Mr Falk. He had been ill for some time. Sad news, but at least he isn't suffering any more.
