How sad to hear about Peter Falk. He's a wonderful actor. I have been enjoying many of the Christmas movie specials he starred in that are being aired this year. My prayers are with Mr. Falk and his family.

Terrible disease. His family will need all the strength they can muster.

I am so sorry to hear this. Peter Falk is a wonderful actor and a good man. I even remember his very first series, "The Trials of O'Brien" and I've been a fan ever since.

He's a fine actor and Colombo was a show that was enourmously popular the world over, especially in Europe.

Never understood the rain coat in L.A. thing but I sometimes think the basset hound was the brains behind a lot of it. ;-)

How could anyone forget his work with John Cassavetes?
