Thompson on Hollywood

Tony-winning New Yorker Peter Falk, who has died at age 83 after suffering from Alzheimers, was beloved for his long-running Emmy-winning TV role as Columbo. But he also memorably starred in Wim Wenders' exquisite Wings of Desire, long-time collaborator John Cassavetes' 1970 drama Husbands and such comedies as The In-Laws, opposite Alan Arkin. He was Oscar-nominated for supporting roles in the 60s' Pocketful of Miracles and Murder, Inc.

Here's Variety and the NYT. Below are ABC News and film clips as well as a Cassavetes/Ben Gazzara/Falk visit to the Dick Cavett Show and a recent interview about his memoir.
