    I think my favorite thing Peter Falk has done is A Woman Under the Influence. He is amazing in that; that movie is amazing. I can’t watch that movie very often because it is so emotionally pummeling but Peter Falk and Gena Rowland’s performances in that film are just some of the best acting.

    May he rest in peace and may his star continue to beam…
