R.I.P. Peter Falk

Peter Falk's Columbo at Dean Martin's Roast of Frank Sinatra:

[h/t Vinney]

And here's Mark Steyn's tribute to Falk.

Even with a scripted role he has the style of jackie gleason to make it look fresh and knows exactly where to milk a laugh or clapping.
I loved his part in the " The Great Race" where he was Jack Lemmon's crazy side-kick driver of the jolopy that tried to sabotage the car of Tony Curtis. He was a Cabby in Mad Mad world with Rochester fro Jack Benny.

If a cop like him starts a Columbo investigation , you're fu**** and just confess.

Thank you, that was wonderful. How sad that so many of these wonderfully-talented people are no longer with us. We miss them.

Yup, Peter Falk was one of my favorites. A very funny guy, especially as Columbo. Too bad he's gone, but he had a long successful life.
