Mr. Peter Falk, best known for his roll as Colombo, passed away last night on June 23, 2011. According to ABC News, “Falk died peacefully at his Beverly Hills home.” He was 83 years old.
His career spanned over five decades bringing him in two Oscar nominations and winning five Television Emmys. Revered as ”everyone’s favorite rumpled television detective,” there is no report that Mr. Falk was a mountain man of sorts, however his character Columbo worked with them.
I was able to locate a clip of this episode where Mr. Falk’s Columbo character arrests William Shatner, who’s playing an opponent on the series, with the help of a team of in disguise mountain bikers, but it is in dubbed in Hungarian. It’s very amusing if you don’t speak Hungarian (like me). Enjoy regardless!
Rest in Peace Mr. Falk. You will surely be missed.
