I loved Columbo, but I think my favourite Peter Falk role was of the Grandfather/narrator in The Princess Bride. The chemistry between him and Fred Ward and his beautiful timing and humour were perfect - such a contrast from his original character and yet played with the same love and attention. Big or small, every role was special to him. He will be missed for sure.

I had to goof off for a few minutes at work and the first thing I did was check the headlines. Peter Falk was dead...I had to close the office door. I loved him in all of his roles, he could make me laugh just looking at the camera. The world is a smaller place with his passing.

just one more thing: we may be democrats or republicans, pro gay marriage or anti gay marriage, pro or anti guns, but one thing we are all in agreement about - nobody didn't not like peter falk. he was our everyman, our underdog who always came out on top, our american treasure. he will be sorely missed across the land.
