The man who was 'Columbo' dead at 83
He was more than "Columbo," having earned two Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actor, including his role in a great yet unappreciated Frank Capra movie, "Pocketful of Miracles." People might remember Falk also played the story-reading grandfather in "The Princess Bride."
His work with the best buddy, John Cassavettes produced two brilliant pieces of cinematic acting, "A Woman Under the Influence," and "Husbands," with Cassavettes and the other mini-Rat Packer, Ben Gazzara.
He WILL be missed.
