Peter Falk always amused me. He was funny and inimitable (except for the fact that everyone does a two-bit impression of him as Columbo).
He died today, peacefully, after battling Alzheimer's, which is a horrible thing to battle. In the end, he didn't even remember who Columbo was.
He had a glass eye. That's pretty cool. Also, The Princess Bride wouldn't be what it is without him and what it is is THE BEST.
