    I'll never forget his famous line. They still show Columbo here on Sundays and whenever I get a chance I watch it, even if I have seen the episode a dozen times already.

    I was looking through my DVD's if you have not seen Wings Of Desire or Faraway So Close I can't recommend them highly enough. I would link them but both had minors in the content.

    I don't even know HOW to choose my fave from the Cassavettes stable, but this clip shows acting you just don't see enough of:
    YouTube - ‪A Woman Under the Influence [1974]‬‏
    Everyone thought Peter Falk was just Columbo, but this role showed great deftness as an actor, and of course Gena Rowlands, superb.

    To my daughter, he'll be warmly remembered as the Grandfather in The Princess Bride. Great casting.
