Columbo dies at 83

Recommended Posts

Actor Peter Falk, known to millions as the rumpled star of television crime drama "Columbo," has died, KTLA.com reports. The actor was 83.

 

He reportedly was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

 

Falk first played Lieutenant Columbo (his first name was never clearly announced, though one badge image lists it as "Frank") in a 1968 TV movie. Its popularity led to a second film and then to the series, which ran from 1971 to 1978. Even after the show was canceled, Falk would play the laid-back detective in "Columbo" TV movies.

I just heard about this. It's sad to hear but the dude lived a life.

 

When it comes to "independent" film making --this guy was a huge part of it back in the 70's. I have a lot of respect for Peter Falk.

 

R.I.P to the wall eyed wizard.
