Just One More Thing

Like many people I enjoyed many a Columbo episode and the news of the passing of actor Peter Falk makes me curiously wistful. It’s strange how we can grow attached to fictional characters and have a fondness for people we only know through their art. I suppose we associate good feelings with them even if derived by sitting passively in front of a television set.

From all accounts Peter Falk was reported to be a very likable man. He was an accomplished artist and it was a tragedy his later years took that ability from him as dementia and Alzheimer’s took its toll.

So thanks for the memories and your film an telly work which will inevitably live on though you are no longer with us.
