Peter Falk, undoubtedly best known for his role as TV detective ‘Columbo,’ has passed away at the age of 83. He had reportedly been suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Falk’s gentle, sputtering style made his Columbo one of the most endearing characters in television history. He also had the huge roles of both grandpa and narrator for what was inarguably the greatest kids’ movie of all time: The Princess Bride.
