RIP: Peter Falk
Falk made a name for himself over a span of over three decades, multiple made for TV movies, and thirteen seasons as the bumbling, beloved Columbo. As any film aficionado will be quick to remind you, however, he also appeared in a bevy of now classic/cult films (The Princess Bride, It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, Murder by Death) and art house favorites, collaborating with John Cassavetes and appearing as himself in Wings of Desire.
He is survived by his wife and two daughters, and will be remembered by generations. [source]
