I'm one of those people who cannot identify any of the young actors today.....they all have odd names, and they all look alike!
I much prefer the old movies, and old tv shows.....and all the actors that had class, and could actually act!
My hubby just told me that Peter Falk passed away.
He was truly one of my favorite actors. I loved everything he was in. He had such an amazing talent!
I have dozens of his Columbo tv series on dvd, and that's what I pop in when I'm quilting.....I've watched them all 100's and 100's of times, I know every line......so I can just hear it while I'm sewing away, and look up every now and then, when I know his sneaky little 'I'm playing the dumb cop' gag is about to come on. I love that! I still giggle when he does it.....and I've seen it so many times!
I love that he had so much class.....he had a hit series, and he was such a friend to so many of his fellow actors, ones that were aging, or not acting much....he would give them guest parts on his show.....some of them over and over again! (Angela Lansbury would do the same thing on her Murder, She Wrote series.....I love her, too! Again.....total class!)
I always get so much pleasure watching his movies and shows......he was one of a kind!
I read that he had dementia and Alzheimer's toward the end. He was 83.
