Peter Falk, who had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, passed away today. He was 83. Falk was best known for his role as Columbo in the movies and television series of the same name, which aired from 1971 - 1993. Film fans perhaps knew him best from his roles in the movies of his good friend, John Cassavettes, while children of the 80s and 90s probably recognize him best from his role as the narrating grandfather in The Princess Bride. Not for nothing, but Falk — an Emmy winnner and a two-time Oscar nominee — gained incredible success despite having a glass eye.
Rest in peace, Peter Falk. You will be missed.
