    RIP Peter Fallk. My beloved Colombo no more. I loved you not only in the Colombo show, but in one of my favorite movies "Death by Murder", the first time you ever wore that trench coat & it stuck with you for so many years. What a great actor. You will be missed. :-(

    Very very sad.
    I would like to recommend a film from the 80's w/ Peter Falk called:
    MURDER BY DEATH.
    it's a murder mystery comedy and it's GREAT! Any Falk fan should check it out if ya haven't seen it.
    Sad day…..loss of a television icon.
    …..just one more thing.

    So very sad. Loved him as Columbo. What a lovable and interesting character that was. Hope he passed peacefully. Bless him and his family.

    One of my fondest memories of my childhood is watching Columbo out smart those no good criminals.

    One of my favorite movies from long ago was "Pocket Full of Miracles" starring Glen Ford, Bette Davis, Hope Lang and Peter Falk as one of the Dude's henchmen. It's a great feel good movie and Peter Falk certainly held his own in such talented company.

    Many thanks to the great Mr. Falk for the hours of entertainment….RIP
