Default RIP Peter Falk

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/25/ar...ies-at-83.html

Among some of my old favorites, The In-Laws, Husbands, Wings of Desire, and of course he is was and always will be Columbo.

Seemed like a really genuine guy.

The Princess Bride... yeah. I forgot about that one.

One of my favorite scenes of his was in Wings of Desire. He's explaining to the Bruno Ganz angel what it's like to be alive. He's just describing simple things we take for granted like rubbing our hands together, "To smoke, and have coffee - and if you do it together, it's fantastic." etc. As played by Falk it's a great scene. A brilliantly simple affirmation of being alive.

MURDER BY DEATH too.

A true original. I remember seeing his house on one of those Hollywood Tour buses. It was the most modest of all of them and fit his personality to a tee.

He played a cab driver in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World". What a talent, and he'll be missed.

Interesting that Bobby Goren of Law and Order:CI (series finale coming on Sunday) and Adrian Monk of Monk echo Columbo.

Default RIP Peter Falk

"Being a private eye may not be much, but we do have a code of honor. It's all right to fool around with your partner's wife, but once he's dead it makes it all so dirty. That's the way it is, angel. You marry yourself a nice guy, have a couple of swell kids. Once you're all set up and happy, maybe we can fool around again." ~ Lou Peckinpaugh, played by Peter Falk in THE CHEAP DETECTIVE

Watched it last night and marvelled that only Falk could so closely match, and parody, Bogart's acting style.
