Actor Peter Falk Dead at 83 - Oh No Colombo!

220px-Peter_Falk_Columbo It is with great sadness that I report the passing of actor Peter Falk.  He was part of my youth with his TV crime drama show Colombo where he always got his man.  In spite of himself.  It was a great show for the time.  No blood, no sex just a good mystery 'who doe it.'

Falk died, it is suspected, of Alzheimer’s disease though an autopsy has not confirmed that yet.

Falks' career spanned many decades and included movies and TV.  My favorite movie he was in was It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.  Check it out some time it has so many famous actors you can't count them all.

Check out his resume:
