    He was such a love. Finally got to spend a day with him and Paul Reiser in Philadelphia when they were on the talk show cicuit for “the Thing about my parents” . Both such great talent and real real men. Peter was just a loving , easy going guy. It was a childhood dream to meet him ,no less to spend a day hanging out..and I know Paul Reiser loved him as much!

    If the performance he gave in “The Great Race” didn’t do it, (For an Oscar), his style could never win one.
    Columbo was OK, and “Robin and the Seven Hoods” was just a crappy venue, but “The Great Race” is a feat of acting prowess that ALL the characters should forever embrace. The only way it could have been improved is the addition of Peter Sellers, although I’m not sure what part he could have played.
    I will bet you that they had an indescribable amount of sheer fun doing it.
    RIP, Mr. Falk. You elevated the “character” actor to, and indeed beyond, the level of genius.
    You and Jack Elam.
    God bless you both.
    Movies have gone nowhere but downhill since they thought “character” actors “beneath” them.
    Petere Faulk and Jack Elam have no peers today. It’s a shame.

    It’s about time that the endearing, wonderful, lovable actor, Peter Falk, is acknowledged by a Star. He probably didn’t care in life, but now looking down I bet he can’t help but smile his famous smile. Peter was unique in a fantastic, engaging way. I wanted to hug him! And, I was thrilled to finally see him in Boston years ago in the play, Love Letters. He was just as adorable/handsome as he is on tv or movies. I do think it’s disgusting that no one in his family gave him a funeral or memorial service of any kind or sat shiva for him. I realize everyone was upset but a service sometimes helps to hear people speak about your loved one in eulogies. It is good for the family to get everyone together. In any case, I love you, Peter, Rest in Peace! Shalom.
