Obituary: Peter Falk

Actor Peter Falk (b.1927) died on June 23. Falk, who has recently been suffering from dementia, starred in numerous comedies, many of them with a fantastic or sf-nal element, perhaps most obviously as the grandfather/narrator in The Princess Bride. He also appeared in an episode of The Twilight Zone and the non-genre films (but well-worthy of mention) The Great Race, The In-Laws, and Murder by Death.
