    Man, he was one of my all time favs. Even got an autographed pic of him when I was like ten and Columbo was in its hay-day.

    Bummer. :(

    A great character and obviously Colombo was a conservative. RIP.

    His Columbo character was an American icon. He will be missed, he was a great actor even without Columbo

    Yes, a good actor.

    The Colombo role was built for him.

    I had not even thought about the guy for a couple of decades.
    My sympathies to his family , etc, etc.

    I read somewhere that they based the whole of the series on the interview between the detective and Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment. Smart ass jerk ass suspect and seemingly clueless detective.
    It worked pretty well.
